Log Cabin #1
I had a productive start to 2006. I was able to spend most of the day working on a UFO. This is one of two log cabin quilts I’m making for twin beds in the condo. My Mom pieced the tops except for the borders and sent them to me several weeks ago (She helps me with piecing in exchange for my quilting services).
I got the borders cut and sewn on, the back made from 9 one yard pieces of fabric pulled from my stash, and finally just before supper, I loaded the quilt on the longarm. I haven’t decided if I’m going to quilt a pantograph or just meander something on it but will have to decide by tomorrow or Monday when I plan to start quilting it.
I like using stash up for quilt backings but I hate spending the extra time to piece them, especially for bed quilts.
