indecisive Much?

I didn't decide what to do with these fabrics from my previous post. OK...I did decide.

I decided to do the zig zag quilt.

And then realized I didn't have enough of the gray solid to do it the way I wanted to, which was alternate rows of print & solid. My second choice is a disappearing nine patch. I still think zig zag is the way to go with those fabrics but I really don't want to shell out any more money on that particular project since the prints were on the expensive side. So I've moved that quilt to the UFO pile until I decide once and for all.

In other quilty fronts, I went to my first retreat as a new member of my local quilt club. The club is called Piecemakers...cute, huh? The ladies who are members have been quilting forever and they have sooo much knowledge and expertise. I'm thoroughly enjoying being a part of it and I think I'll become a real quilter yet, if only by association with this great group!

At the retreat I took a class on how to make a half log cabin quilt. SO much fun! And so addicting! The log cabin is one of my all time favorite quilts, and this block allows you to use a log cabin layout but takes less fabric and about half the time for the blocks.

Here are the layouts I'm thinking of doing with my finished blocks. Will be small...think lap sized.
