Log Cabin Quilt Top

At the class with Barb and Mary I chose to start the Log Cabin quilt from their Jelly Rolls Gone Wild pattern.  All their fabrics are such fun, happy colours and designs.  I decided to add borders, mainly because I wanted to use up as much of the fabric as possible (still have quite a few strips leftover).  Sewed on the last border a couple of nights ago.

 

A while ago I ordered some cute dotty fabric to back this quilt - once again the parcel was held up in Customs for almost two weeks.


I also bought a mystery Bonnie and Camille Fat Eighth bundle and some remnants - extra Bonnie and Camille and Fig Tree fabrics are always handy to have in the cupboard.

During the class there were lots of prize draws and I won a charm pack of the girls' Giggles fabrics and we were each given a charm pack of their next range Dot Dot Dash.  I've been wondering what to make with these charm packs and decided to make a small Snippets quilt, designed by Bonnie Olavesen (Cotton Way).


The quilt is made up of two basic shapes:  hourglass blocks (pictured) and half-square triangles.  I think the little quilt will look wonderful in these fun colours.

The stack of granny squares is growing and I've crocheted a few together - just to see how they look.


Had a lovely time on Wednesday with most of my favourite people and have a busy weekend coming up, starting with The Wharf Review tonight - hoping for lots of laughs; Southern Stars tomorrow to watch Jenni's school perform and a 90th birthday party on Sunday.

Hello Lynda,

I just love the border on the Log Cabin Quilt. Strange about the fabric being held up in Customs. Glad it has arrived safely though. Enjoy your outings and Happy 90th Birthday to your friend.

Happy days.
Bev.
