The Summer of Completion Continues...Here's the Finished Log Cabin Blanket



Just a few hours ago I put the final stitches on this blanket. Now all that remains is weaving in the joins on the back. In just a day or two I'll be able to move on to my next project, a curtain to cover the closet in my sons' room.

Why a curtain you ask? The door that had been there was an ancient accordian type. It never opened up enough to give the boys access to the closet. Instead, it created a safe haven for junk to hide. A regular door is out of the question because of space limitations. A curtain seems to be the best choice.

The bar and hardware to hold this curtain will be taken out of another closet where it had been a lower bar for the previous owners little girl. The curtain itself will be made out of either the leftover bedsheet that I used for quilt edging or another fabric from my stash.

So what projects have you started to finish?
