Tonight I dug out the cat and dog fabrics and made up this sample block. I think that I need to live with it for a little while to decide if I like it enough to make 34 more blocks. I also think that I need to make the alternate block so that I can see what it is going to look like. I used 2 1/2" strips and the finished block is supposed to be 14" but I always seem to have a little problem with log cabin type blocks not being completely square. Oh well I think I am going to have to put it in the good enough catagory.
I think I will use solids for the alternate blocks. The picture doesn't really show it but the background is a cream color and kind of looks dull. I am reluctant to use white in a quilt for a kid though. Maybe some brighter alternate blocks will perk things up.
I am off to spend 15 minutes picking things up a la Fly Lady and then I think I am off to bed.
