In between the clues, when I had completed the clue and had a few days left over, I started a giant scale log cabin with 2 1/2" strips. I got 24 blocks done for a 4 by 6 setting. The blocks will finish at 12", so that would be 60" by 90" for a nice twin.
Or so I thought! I was talking it over with Felix, and he thought it would be a much better idea to make the next twelve blocks, do a 6 by 6 block setting for a 90" by 90" queen. Since I had done these from Keepsake Quilting's sale strips, I needed a little more chocolate brown fabric.
Now, remember, if you are buying fabric to complete an ongoing project, it doesn't count against your "No-Buy" pledge. So when I was out running errands and getting my belated flu shot, I stopped at The Quilted Frog quilt shop. It was fun to pick out some nice rich browns that were NOT Civil War reproductions.
So I'm steady on course making my two-a-day and now have 12 made and pressed.
When things like this start to bother me, I consult my stress-relief professional, Raven.
Her advice is to take any problem and sleep on it; it will be better after your nap! LOL!
