I finished this one as a gift for my mother, so it will be shipping off very soon. I decided to call it Myrtlewood, after the name of the street where I grew up.
This was actually a quilt I started in about 2002! Yes, more than 20 years ago. I don't remember why it got set aside, but it just kept moving with me until I decided a couple years ago to focus my efforts on finishing UFOs.
I used Quilter's Dream Green batting and Harmony variegated Violets thread.
For this quilt, I actually used pantographs without any substantial changes. For the blocks, I used Quiltable's Open Diamond Quarter. (It looks like it comes as part of the Delicate Bay 10-piece set
.) And for the border, I used their Sparkle Field E2E
. This was my quilting plan.
It stitched out really well and I like how it turned out.
Oh, and it has a neat pieced back.
I was surprised at how many of these fabrics I still had in my stash after 20 years, but I did have to use some new ones that aren't on the front.

Beautiful log cabin. I keep thinking I want to do more log cabins.ReplyDelete
Well, this style of block is easy to make and they use up a lot of scraps. It's a nice break from my more complicated projects.Delete
What a great finish - the quilting complements the design beautifully. xxReplyDelete
Thanks Lin. This was one of those rare instances where I quilted it with the first design I came up with. I usually fiddle around with several designs before I commit to one.Delete
