I managed to get my Blush log cabin quilted and bound this week. I am so thrilled with how this quilt finished up and can not wait to see how it washes.
I quilted Blush using the diagonal lines of the log cabin block as a guide. I love how the how this simple quilting adds extra interest to the log cabin.
I must admit I am looking forward to trying some of the free-motion techniques I learned last week at the PMQG Meet Up, but I have a few weeks before my wrist is up for the challenge. So the next few quilts will involve straight lines in some shape or form and in the meantime I will do my free-motion exercises in my new graph paper note-book. As instructed by Rachel (of 2nd Ave Studios) I will be using pen only for the doodling. No erasing.
I found the perfect fabric piece in my stash for the back of this quilt – the Weekend by Erin Morris fabric worked perfectly with a little bit of pink supporting fabric.
The final touch was a solid binding in Magenta which just bought the whole quilt together.
Now I am just a few stitches away from finishing my Yummy quilt so it is back to the sewing machine.
I am linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts and TGIFF.

Absolutely lovely. Your chosen colours really compliment the Log Cabin style.
So pretty! Such a fun girly quilt.
So pretty! And so many lovely bits of fabrics used. I love your choice for the binding, frames it up beautifully!
All those pinks! I love it! And the binding is super fab! 🙂

The colors on this are so fantastic!

Log cabin is a quilting must, and wonky log cabins are the bomb!
Cath, I love this quilt! All of the pink is great and not overly sweet!

Oh, this is really nice!
I like the way you hang your quilts too. I’ll have to try that. 🙂
You were so right! That peach/coral and pink are a smash hit! Great job on the quilting. Hope your wrist is healing up well, Cath, because it ain’t slowing you down any! Congrats on the finish! Sharing it, with a link back, on my facebook page at http://facebook.com/sewfreshquilts.
Thanks Lorna. I am frustrated I can’t do more with this silly wrist thing but I keep on keeping on. So glad you have decided to join the paper piecing party. Can’t wait to see what you do.
Another beautiful quilt. Like it so much!
So pretty, wonderful colour combintaion. I would never have thought of these – the dark purply pink is perfect.
That backing is so cute. I love pink.
Congratulations, I love it!
I said it before, but I love the color combo in this one! Very sweet.
Pretty, pretty! I just picked up a load of pinks and oranges that I can see being used like this! Totally feeling you on the wrists, hopefully, soon, you will be up to doing whatever your heart desires!
Thanks for the good wishes. I must admit I am bored with working at less than 100%. Too much to do to be injured. Lol.
Good to see you spiced that pink up with the warm oranges. It’s all very grapefruit!
I took your advice and added some Posy. It worked perfectly. You are of course a genius.
Looks great, I just love the quilting you chose. Fabulous binding too! I have got to get me some of those labels.
I do not know why I did not get them sooner. I never used to label my quilts, but it is such an important step. Even now I will forget every now and then and have to unpick a bit of the binding and stick one in!
You and your color combos never cease to amaze me! Gorgeous!
Wonderful colors – a very cheerful quilt!!
