I Climbed the Steps!

I finished the Courthouse Steps quilt in time for the next Little Women's Club meeting that is coming up this Thurs. I enjoyed making this little quilt and I am glad to have a Butternut and Blue quilt in my collection. I was lucky to find the exact right color of red for the centers. I had just a small piece and used most of it up. I don't think this is one of my favorite log cabin patterns. I like the versatility of the 1/2 light, 1/2 dark blocks.

We got 6 yards of wood mulch today and spent several hours spreading it around. There is still a pile in the driveway and bare spots to fill so tomorrow is more of the same. It always looks so nice when it's done, but it is sure a lot of work.


  1. Kris - this quilt turned out just DARLING!
    I love seeing how your Little Women club projects turn out!(actually, all of your sewing projects)
