I FINISHED A QUILT!! - almost

Log Cabin and Stars





WOW, it's been a long time since I've written anything - no, I didn't fall off the earth ( wish I had ( grin ) ) and no, I didn't win the lottery. I've been working much too much, coming home, falling asleep and starting all over again.

I do not like it.

But, enough about my woes and worries,,, guess I should be real glad that I have a job that is so busy that I get to work 50 or more hours a week! ( I'm glad, I'm glad, I'm glad,,, see me smile? )

So,,, what have I finished (almost )? My biggest quilt ever! It's the Log Cabin and Stars that is done is blues, reds, tans and whites

I think there was a million pieces.... and It came out SO BIG! A whopping 100 x 110! It just kept growing and growing. But I love how it came out.

AND,,, all the fabrics came from my STASH!! WHOO WHOO! How much better can it get than that! ( I think I need to start a counter to see what I've used - anyone got a good one?? )

My goodest friend quilted it for me,, and did a marvelous!! job

Log Cabin and Stars

You have got to check out the quilting... there are so many different items that she put into this. The tan 4-block here has a phoenix, feathers are everywhere, the border has special flowers,,, it's just wonderful! ( OK, here's the place to see her fabulous quilting,, you have to visit her site at English Street Quilter at http://www.quiltifications.blogspot.com/) (( LOL,, I just went there and my quilts are one of her entries on her blog ))

Log Cabin and Stars

see the flowers in the border?? the best part of her quilting is most of the designs are her own! So original!! Now, don't you wish you lived close to me so you have her do your quilts ??!!!

Log Cabin and Stars

Hey! maybe you do!



I've been sitting on my bed sewing the binding. It's so big that I have to have someplace to rest it while I sew. My dogs sure like it!! Webster has claimed it as his own, I think! I think what they really enjoy is Mom sitting on the bed with them! No, they aren't spoiled (GRIN ) !!

A good example go partnership - color, design, piecing and quilting!
