Just Quietly...

It's the hubby's (60th) birthday soon, so I want to make something nice for us. I've long thought Log Cabin's were an excellent way to use/showcase my gorgeous fabrics. So here it is. I work on it at my Dad's, so he knows nothing about it. Surprise!

The only thing is, I leave for work while he's still in bed, then he turns it down to breathe and release boy fumes... and I maybe make the bed at night... so really the quilt will spend its beautiful, silken days on the floor in a crumpled heap. But there it is!
My Dad's enjoying the way the logs shading can be arranged to make various patterns. I may change it yet, as I delve into the ever reducing hoard of cloth and pick out new bits. But at least I can lay it out on the floor there. We don't have any floor over here at my house.

Japanese silks and other exotic lusciousnesses.

It's so pretty. The colors change so subtly they look pained. I love it and I bet he will too.
