Cosmic Cabin Quilting

I must confess, I envisioned the Cosmic Cabin quilt wrapped up by now, but life, as it often does, had other plans! A different non-sewing project spirited me away, but hey, three days still remain in the month – plenty of time to conquer my goal of finishing both these quilts!

Complete the borders on the Cosmic Cabin quilt ✔️
Create a backing for the Cosmic Cabin quilt  ✔️
Bring the Cosmic Cabin quilt to life!  Nearly finished

I spent a couple days playing with my ProStitcher Studio and devised three different quilting designs, and my husband was smitten with one in particular. It's a blend of feathery swirls and striking geometric patterns. I'll post more details and close-up photos with the finish.

Now, this pattern is definitely denser than my usual style, but I'm all in for a little adventure. Surprisingly, now that I've quilted a few rows, it doesn't look as dense as I initially thought it might, so I'm thrilled I took the plunge.  Chances are, once this quilt is finished, it'll find a new home with my husband's sister as a special birthday present. She's in for quite a treat!

For the coming week, I'd like to:

  1. Craft a backing for the Comet's Revival quilt
  2. Quilt the Comet's Revival quilt
  3. Make Quilt Labels for the finished quilts
  4. Bind the Cosmic Cabin so it can be Mailed
Linking up with:

  4. I love your attitude about finishing up your Cosmic Quilt!
    Yes, indeed! A quilt for a birthday present is indeed a treat! Happy Stitching!
