40 of the 56 blocks have been sewn and trimmed to 10″. Only another 16 to go. That will give me a quilt approx 66″ x 76″
Now is the time I start thinking of how to lay it out and how to quilt it to the best of my abilities. Hopefully that is being stretched each time I put a quilt on the frame.
The layout has been decided……..see previous post
Now the “How to quilt it”. That old “quilt as desired” that used to drive me crazy. Usually if I think about it for awhile and the answer comes to me. Sometimes quite by accident. That’s what happened this time. I was looking for something in my very cluttered sewing room and came across this little excerpt from someones blog.
Now, these days (since starting a blog) I would give credit to the author of the words and design that I copied. BUT, I’m embarrassed to say, that way back in my surfing of quilting sites days, I copied info but not where I found them. I was only going to use it for myself as inspiration was my justification. I know better today, so if anyone recognizes this design please let me know and I will definitely give credit where it is due. In the article “One of the “things” she did was being a contributor to the “Fresh Ideas” column in the “On Track “magazine produced by the International Machine Quilting Association. ”
I GOT LUCKY…. I googled the information I had and I found the talented lady……Cindy Roth back in 2012. (click her name and it will take you to the blog post she wrote. ) So thank you Cindy, I am going to use this design for the quilting of this log cabin. Wish me luck. Feathers and I don’t always get along.
