My brother has decided to get remarried and I'd like to make him a wedding gift. It turns out his favorite colors are drab green/olive and brown so I thought it would be a good excuse to use more of my leftover William Morris fabrics. Back when I bought them, I really had no idea how much fabric you needed to make a quilt so I bought about four times as much fabric as I actually needed. LOL
I'm probably a little crazy, but I've decided to make another Snake River Log Cabin for him. The pattern is designed by Judy Martin and published in her Judy Martin's Log Cabin quilt book. I'll be making it really scrappy and focusing on olive greens and browns, with a little bit of rust/reds, something along these lines. I won't go quite as wild with the cream fabrics as I did last time because I didn't like how dark some of them were.
I've spent a couple hours digging through my scrap bins and fat quarters to find all the useable pieces, in addition to the yardage. Now I have so many hours of cutting ahead of me. It seems like the hardest part of this quilt is managing all the pieces.
If you want to take a look, the finish for my first Snake River is found here. This version will largely be the same, but I will be using the dark green instead of rust for the second curve of blocks.
