ATCs and log cabin

Since the last posting I have been rather productive. I made 3 sets of ATCs out of the piece of weaved and embellished fabric:

The embellished set - one of these has gone to Susan Lenz for the Cyber Fyber Exhibition.

The feathered set - all of which are still here, waiting to be swapped (so if you're interested, please sent me an email!)

And a set for the Quiltuniversity Class Swap, which I won't show here yet.

And I worked on my log cabin quilt. I've made 25 blocks so far, it is going rather slowly as I do not have much time for sewing (a few hours in the evening when the boys are asleep; sometimes a little time during the day when the little ones sleep at the same time - but I have started my new job and am working 2 days per week now). But I'm very happy with the way it is turning out:

It's like being in love; I can't stop thinking about this quilt in the making! I intend to make 64 blocks (8x8) and put 2 borders on it. But that may yet change...
I won't have much time for quilting in the next few weeks though, as we have found another rental house and are going to move next week or the week after that...

I really really like your black and white log cabin quilt. It's going to be gorgeous when it's finished. I also only have time for sewing after kiddies are in bed, and if I'm lucky a short while during the day when the littlest one sleep and the oldest one is in school...

Gorgeous ATCs - really luxurious. And now I know what to do with my black ad white fabrics!

the log cabin is looking terrific!
I am playingwith my black and white fabrics at the moment as well. My first black and white quilt I added green with it...and very happy with it.
Next is something with red, and then another with blue...and still there will be enough fabric for another 2-3 quilts..(I have been collecting black and white for about 6 years!)
