paint to fabric and I get really excited!!

A Log Cabin for a Graduation

I am very grateful to the members of my local quilt guilds who trust me to quilt their tops and help finish their projects. Almost every client tells me to quilt as I see fit, use the thread colors I think best and have fun! And although I realize full well the responsibility that comes with that, well, what a lot of fun that is for me! 

Sharon has trusted me with a number of quilts and this log cabin made of Moda prints is a recent project of hers. She provided me with an 80/20 cotton batting and I used my favorite Glide thread for both top and bobbin. I quilted a free style scallop shell in the center, added some loops in the middle border and the quilted bead board on the outer border. I think the quilt turned out very nice and I bet the lucky recipient is very happy with her new quilt, a graduation present.

Today I am linking to The Needle and Thread Network

    Thanks so much, Janet! I think she was pleased with the result - especially when she really wasn’t happy with the colors of the top once it was pieced.

    Thanks, Lorette! Will you get any time yourself to quilt these days?
