It has been over a month since I posted my last finished quilt and I am feeling a little slack for not finishing something up sooner… life really just kept getting in the way. But after some quilting and binding I am pleased to present…
…my baby blue log cabin quilt. This quilt was made using scraps left over from the quilt I made my sister-in-law and the top was put together in record time… and then just sat with my other UFO’s until I took pity on it last week.
I loaded some electric blue thread into my machine, attached my walking foot and started quilting.
Lots of straightish lines later the top was quilted. For the back of the quilt I used a piece of IKEA fabric I had in my stash that seemed to work well.
The finishing touch was some solid navy binding… nothing too fancy but I think it was what was called for.
So I have my first finished quilt for April. “Baby Blue” will be heading to Project Linus this month, as our chapter has a shortage of baby quilts at the moment… and I am off to sew more little bits of fabric together.

That is gorgeous!!!! Drop dead gorgeous!!!!!
Thanks. It was so simple but effective. You really can not beat a good log cabin.
way to finish up you slacker 😉 Lovely work,Cath!
I know. I know. I also have 4 PMQG Charity quilts that need finishing. I am hoping to sip those out to some helpful long armers. Too much to do so little time!
You’re right, that IKEA fabric is a winner. And doesn’t it feel good to get another piece of fabric out of the stash?
I am in the process of trying to organize my stash and I was extra thrilled to be using my IKEA fabric as it is so hard to fold like the other fabric because it is so wide. I am now striving to get more fabric gone…which means more quilts finished!
So pretty! I just love it!!!! Great color choices!
Yay for the finish and double yay for a charity quilt.
