A little bit of stitching

I got a chance to do a little bit of stitching this weekend.004

Remember that cute little quilt that I found in Quiltmaker magazine?  I just had to make that one! All those sweet little log cabin blocks in all those scrappy colors just spoke to me…

Here  is the version from the magazine….008

 

And here are some pictures of my work in progress…..

And here is MY final product!002I am sooo happy with the final result! I changed up the center pattern a little bit, and decided to add teeny log cabins as cornerstones. My log cabin blocks are a little wonky, but I LOVE it! It is cheery and bright and I loved working on it.

So you would think that if I made this entire quilt pretty much out of scraps ( except for the light blue dot that came out of my stash) that my scrap box would look pretty empty by now….002How is that POSSIBLE?? It looks even more full than before! I think I could easily make 5 or 6 more scrappy quilts and maybe then it would look empty….

Alright, I am off to quilt this little cutie now….by machine. All those little seams would be very difficult to quilt through by hand. I am hoping to have it done before Valentine’s Day so it can hang on our wall and add some nice, bright color. I did go around our house this past week and pulled out the best “red/heart”quilts I could find:

Not too bad. This new little quilt doesn’t have any hearts, but I think it will do! Hmmm, maybe I could make a little scrappy heart / log cabin quilt to add to the mix….

And finally, I would like to leave you with this thought, which is on a plaque that graces my sewing room:009

 

Yep, I totally agree!

Until next time!

  1. That is one gorgeous quilt, I agree that it looks better than the magazine one (no offense to the designer). Thanks for sharing. Guida
