It felt good, so I kept going. I'm pretty sure my background fabric is an interweave chambray in pepper by Robert Kaufman. All the cabin logs are neutrals - a few cut from yardage, but most pulled from the scrap basket. The majority are solids, but some are favorite low-volume prints.
Truly, I made trimming and fabric decisions as I rounded each corner, which was so darn satisfying - pretty much my favorite method of sewing these days.
After 3 rounds, I had to let my piece set for a few days as I mulled over where to take it next. I sketched some layout possibilities and finally settled on a pretty basic plan, keeping what I'd already done as the focus. So it's not very big - about 36" square - and now I'm mulling over a pieced backing, hoping to make that process as fun as the front.
I'm curious . . . what % of the time do you know where you're going with a project versus the times you figure it out as you go?
