Lake Cabin quilt progress

You are all so clever! Yes...a star is missing one leg. I must fix this. So I am working on it right now! I have also added a narrow black border and am deciding on the final border fabric.

No rhyme or reason to the photos today watchers. I am whipped and yet very pleased with my sewing. I had to get away from the monster Oriental quilt. I worked on Lake Cabin from Kim Bracett's Scrap-Basket Sensations. This was another quilt that Mary Flynn made and quilted for Kim's book. I went totally scrappy with this one.

 I also decided I wanted the Friendship Stars on each sashing instead of how Mary and Kim had it. I saw after I did that that the dark legs of the block sorta diminish the effect. But I am still happy.
 I love keeping things organized while sewing. It really makes a difference to the total outcome and whether I can ENJOY the sewing process.

 Isn't this a great quilt?
 And I have bonus triangles. I made some Broken Dishes blocks from the leftovers. They will work in to my Neutral quilt I have blooming in my head. I was going to make 4 1/2" blocks. But these ended up being 3 1/2". too small? Maybe and maybe not...we will see....

Can you find my error?
Hubby found it right off. I have not decided if I am going to fix it or not.

You have a block turned the wrong way. Change it now while it's'll be glad you did!

I would just leave it. Call it your mystery quilt and make a game of finding the missing piece. I really love this quilt!

I found a star point missing on the Friendship star in the second row. Was never able to depict the block turned. Very busy quilt but oh how I love it. Judy C

Love your colors! I was thinking a star is missing a 'leg'? I'd fix it too. Have a happy week!

Oh my goodness - every quilt I've seen of yours is one I'd love to cozy up under! What a great idea.

Now, I have to go back and see which block is turned wrong. Ole eagle-eye Joan (above)! 8-)
