I’ve been quilting….

I recently realized that I had a LOT of unfinished quilt tops. I decided to do something about it and in a little over a week I basted, quilted and bound nine of them! Since I’m not going to keep them all I thought it would be a good time to resurrect this blog and make notes on them here.

Trailer Log Cabin 45″ x 45″

This quilt I think I am going to keep, at least for a bit. It’s special to me because I started piecing the top over a long weekend in our trailer. The girls and I were alone in it during a few rainy days while my husband took the car, leaving us at the campground. It was such a cozy fun time. I only brought a basket of scraps with me, including a large remanent of a Carolyn Friedlander print I love that ended up being the center of each block. After the orange criss cross I chose colors I had on hand and slowly added to the quarter log cabins. Once home I got them up on the design wall I decided not to square up the centers.

I used a walking foot with my Juki to quilt this (which was easy with low loft 100% cotton batting). I machine stitched on the binding. I’m doing this for almost all my quilts now. I’ve gotten better at it and it is so much fast. A good thing when you’re finishing nine quilts! This one is going to live on the big reading chair in our bedroom for now.
