I am also working on Ro Pace's Log Cabin Sampler, which is an ANG Cyber Workshop. I am ahead of schedule as I wanted to finish the first part before traveling to our "winter" home. So this piece is "resting" until the class starts the frame part, at which time I will take it up again.
I changed all the colors and threads, which was quite a challenge! I am pleased with the results. The next step is the frame which I think will go quickly. I just hope the "finishing" will not be too hard!
