Snow, crocodiles and quilting

 It has snowed here in the UK and it's all anyone can talk about!  We don't really get much snow - well, not in significant amounts or for very long - so things have pretty much ground to a halt.  Not much going on in my road.

Not much going on in the garden.

The lady next door isn't pottering in her garden either.  So what's a girl to do?

Quilting of course!  But this isn't quite what I had in mind!  It's the front paws of the crocodile for 'Peter Pan', and there is DS helpfully holding them up.  They look a bit weird, but once they have been painted they will look pretty authentic - we hope!

So while the croc has been on the dining room table, I haven't been able to layer up any of the UFOs I need to finish, so I've been playing with the scraps from my 1.5" box.  I never tire of log cabin.  Which looks better - dark,

or light?

Please help me choose!

The light is nice...the negative space created by the white would give you a nice area to quilt...maybe wreaths of feathers or something.

Dark - has much more impact.

Dark for me!! Lovely! Hilary

Aren't we silly about the snow!! Can't wait to see the finished croc too.

I did a big reveal to John tell him to tell me which of the two quilts he liked on instant showing. He liked the top one and I think I agree!

I like the second one and feathers as Jane points out would look lovely.Is a love of feathering contagious?
