Another log cabin done and dusted…

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.

  1. i can’t get over how much i love these colors together. they are truly stunning! i love the binding and the quilting too! i neeeeed to make a log cabin quilt 🙂

    • 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.

  2. 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!

  3. 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!
