Not Sure Where I'm Going with this...

I had sudden inspiration the other evening in of all places, my laundry room.  I have a small wonky log cabin quilt hanging in my laundry room and every day as I walk by it I think that I need to make another wonky log cabin in zanier, wilder colors.  This quilt was one of my first projects and is, well, ho, hum.  Here's a corner:

A little more of the quilt from a very odd angle, it's difficult to snap pictures in a laundry room!
So the story goes, everyday when I walk by this quilt, I plan that new wonky log cabin, a la Freddy Moran colors.  Then suddenly I think, how about a selvage quilt log cabin?  So I shoot across the hall to the sewing room and get to work. And here's my creation.

I ended up using black and white selvages for two sides and multi-colors on the other two sides, not
pre-planned, like most of my sewing, just kind of happened.

And my favorite selvage on this block:

We'll see where this journey goes!

My son Cort and I have set up our summer cots on the back porch tonight, our first real summer evening, the stars are shining and the crickets are chirping, what fun.  Goodnight. zzzzzzzzz
