I succeeded in not using the same patterned fabric in more than one block. Most of these were taken out of my stash, but I also definitely purchased some bright colors with the intention of using them here. I did use one or two solids in more than one block, but that is the nature of solids and I'm not going to worry about it.
The cats were helpful as usual and are probably happy that I no longer will inquire as to the condition of their toes. (Are your feet dirty? You can't be here if your feet are dirty!) And, now, to the back! I'm planning on making 8 log cabins, one from each color group represented on the front. I have about three yards of a deep blue and I plan to incorporate the log cabins into the blue and make a simple, but pretty back.
Taking the day off work to finish this was the greatest decision I've ever made!
