Quilt With Us

Several years ago I bought Judy Martin's Log Cabin Quilts book with the goal of making some of the quilts in it.  One that really caught my eye was the Snake River Log Cabin so I decided I was going to make it in a king size.  Well I finally started it, but it didn't take long for reality to set in so I ended up making the wallhanging instead.  This is 53" square and has 1406 pieces in it.  The king size has over 7000!  I'm very happy with how this turned out.

Thanks Barb.  After making this top I decided to make using up as many of my scraps as possible my goal for this year.  I had a bin full of 5" squares so now I'm making 4-1/2" half square triangles and laying them out in the barn raising setting.  At the rate I'm going just in this bin alone, I will probably have enough for at least a twin size quilt.

Wow!  If this is your start for the year, I can't wait to see what's next!

Thanks handstitcher.  This top has really put me in the mood to make more scrappy quilts this year & try to use up my never ending pile of scraps.

That’s amazing, Janet! I’ve never seen that pattern before and yours is spectacular.  I’d say your 2019 UFO Challenge is off to a great start; keep ‘em coming!

Thanks everyone.  Working on this has really stimulated my desire to make more scrap quilts.  With the cost of fabric being what it is, I need to use up more of what I have.  I did buy a wide backing for this today as I figure that will make it easier to quilt considering there is already a ton of seams on the top.

Wow! That is stunning!

I agree with Pam.  Stunning!  Reality would have set in quickly with me, too.  SO many pieces!  Looking forward to all your 2019 finishes.
