Log Cabin Love

My first finish of 2019! I am so in love with log cabins right now.

Started and finished this up for Christmas, well that was the plan. Presented the quilt then took it back to put the binding on it. LOL it is now in its new home.

Happy New Years!!

Boy Quilt Girl Quilt

I found this pattern and thought I would give it a whirl. Super easy and since I was following a pattern quite soothing.

I made a boy quilt and a girl quilt. I guess I have a thing for Janet Claire.

That makes 7 large quilts and 8 baby quilts for 2018. I don't really want to think of the in and out to my stash as I still have waaaaay too much fabric. 2019 here we come!

Christmas in July

I have been so bad at posting my quilts in a timely manner. This is a son-in-law quilt. Ta-da! All three are now finished and gifted.
I had different plans for this quilt that I had been saving. You know, the fox with the bow tie, too cute. However when I saw the Volkswagen Van material all plans changed. I bought the material, leafed through a magazine and found a pattern and sewed it up.
 Grandson is modeling the other birthday gifts.
 Love when a quilt comes together like that!
Made gluten, dairy and sugar free muffins for thanksgiving. They were delicious. Served them with apple compote.
 Also made a sugar free plum compote with prune plums.
 We had a very Happy Thanksgiving!

That Quilt!

Have you ever had one of those quilts? The one where everything goes wrong? You know, you clean up then can't find the blocks, you lay the blocks out and they fall off the bed, you lay them out again and the dog rearranges them. Then to top it off you sew it together wrong and don't notice until you are quilting, you can't sew a straight line because the blocks aren't lined up, yes sewed wrong. Yup, this was THAT QUILT.

However it is done!!! And no I did NOT resew it. The lines are crocked. I did not point it out and maybe Jerome will never notice.

Love this fabric! I used an odd assortment of black and white fabric for the crosses.

And the pattern was easy to follow, it was an operator error for sure.

This makes 4 twin quilts and 6 baby quilts this year. I would like to say I am ahead of the game in using my scraps but you could not tell looking around.

Look I was left a present in exchange for the plums.

 Enjoy your fall!
