Thanks Myrna. Your Shoreline log cabin is beautiful. Judy Martin definitely likes using a lot of pieces in her quilts, doesn't she?!
Sherri, I love your little quilt. I too prefer straight line quilting for the most part. Probably a throw back to my hand quilting days.
Most of my ideas come from seeing other projects, so in a way I copy, but I always modify or do something a bit different. this is about 20 X 20 I will probably decorate my front door for spring with it. I put a couple of magnet hooks on the door below the window and I hang quilts different for each season there. It brightens up the front door.
Sherri, how large is it? Maybe, you can gift it to someone. You are very creative if you came up with that cutie for a quick project.
Last week I had a play day in my sewing space. When I want to take a break from a larger project I start to play with fabrics and make a small project. This is what I came up with, using whatever I had on hand of course. Don't have a clue what to do with it, but had fun piecing, and appliqueing it. I even enjoyed the quilting, which with such a small l project did not take long. I was going to try free motion on this piece, but I am such a terrible free motion quilter that I stopped and ripped out what I had done, and went back to my trusty walking foot. I like straight line quilting mostly anyway. But when I try to free motion, I get skipped stitches, broken needles and lots of frustration. So it is best that I just leave that one alone.
Janet, your wall hanging is lovely. I made the Shoreline Log Cabin quilt from the same book; over 1900 pieces. You can see it on page two of my photos. It now lives in New Brunswick.
Janet, beautiful quilt top. Looks like lots of work. I used to look for projects with large blocks, but since becoming a Bonnie HUnter fan, I have learned to love smaller blocks. She seems to love the 3" block. Since piecing is my favorite part of the process that works for me.
Thanks Cat Lady & Diane. The piecing of the blocks was more time consuming than difficult, but it was a bit daunting when it came time to sew the outside borders on.
Janet, that pattern had been on my bucket list for b years but..... Hmm m maybe just another regular log cabin will do. I salute you
Beautifully done Janet.
I love Judy Martin's quilts, but some of the piece sizes are intimidating.
Happy New Year to everyone. I hope you all have a prosperous 2019.
A few weeks ago I decided it was long past time to make my Snake River Log Cabin quilt out of Judy Martin's Log Cabin Quilts book. When I first purchased this book, my goal was to make this quilt in a king size. Well it sure didn't take long for reality to sit in & I made the wallhanging instead. As it is, this still ended up with 1406 pieces the smallest of which are 3/4" x 1-1/2" before being sewn to the next piece of fabric! I'm very pleased with how it turned out and now I need to see who I can get to longarm quilt it for me.
