Quilting the log cabin quilt



I have started quilting the log cabin quilt with a beautiful variegated (black and white) thread. The Lee Cleland book proved very useful; it has a pattern for a log cabin quilt that I really like and I am using that, though a bit different than it is done in the book. It's hard to see in the picture, but you can click on it to see a larger photo.

I've done 10 blocks so far, so only 54 to go - and the border. This will keep me busy for the next few weeks!



PS A few people asked what I had done to win the prize at iQuilt. Well, I was one of the first 10 persons to send them an email and tell them what I would do with the samples - make fiber postcards for friends overseas!

Well Linda that is a lot of work you've got ahead... But I can already see that it will be beautiful. I have a UFO that still needs some quilting. I just can't get to it. Maybe I will take it along on my holiday and do the work while sitting in front of our mobile home.

p.s.: I would love to become your friend. As a lucky coincidence I live overseas ;-)
