For those following my story this past week, this is a compilation of my latest artistic endeavor. Because I have the supplies, I decided to give quilting a try.
My late grandmother was not only a master at horticultural, but a master quilter as well. She taught me to sew very early on, but it wasn't until late that I had any interest in giving quilting a go.

Had a go at the #snowcabinquilt
block today... My friend @la_aurora1899
has asked me to make two small wall hangings for her mum using this design but in solid brown tones, so before I make the official one I thought I'd have a practise with some scraps from my stash 😊 actually, this is made with fabric gifted to me by @giddy99
!! Thank you! 💖 It came out quite Christmassy actually! I've learned that I need to make a couple of adjustments to the measurements to get the size she wants. Now I need to decide what to do with this one, keep or Christmas gift for someone?? 🎁🎄🎅

This (23 year old) quilt right here started my love for quilts. My mom made it for me when I was just a wee little 8 year old. I remember the two of us made a special weekend trip to Kentucky to have my Great Aunt Velsie hand quilt and hand sew on the binding. I have been regularly using it on my bed for at least five years, and who knows for how long as a child! I love this quilt so much and am so happy how well it has held up through the years! Thanks mom for providing not only my passion for quilting, and teaching me the basics, but for also making me this warm hug every night! I love you!
On that cheese note! Off to work on a custom made tshirt quilt top!!
Scrappy log cabin quilt. This one was a fun distraction. It's up on the Etsy shop
Starting to build the Log Cabin quilt top. Determined to get this done before Monday, because next week will be all about food and family. 😘🦃🍽🍷💛
It’s crazy, how different this looks compared to the other picture of 4 blocks. Different lighting really makes a difference!
Quilty toppy goodness. 🧵 ✂️ ♻️ .
[details for crafters] this is my first attempt at a log cabin quilt. Made with scraps from old sewing projects and old clothing. As a log cabin quilt should be 😉📝 .

I LOVE this gorgeous fortrel #logcabinquilt
It looks so pretty on my bed I don't want to give it back!
20 very large Log Cabin blocks, done! Center block is 5”, total block size 16”. They still need to be squared off, but I wanted to play with the layout a bit. This is one option, will try another version tomorrow. Happy to have all 20 blocks done! 😍
Coming out of retreat mode into a full week of evening commitments and a sick kiddo is...whew. Channeling the calm and creative energy from this weekend 🧘🏼♀️
Baby quilt with matching drool bib and bunting! Done and ready for a baby shower! And to think, this quilt began with me playing with scraps making modified log cabins! I love improvising quilts!
This week my purpose is to finish my ufo pillows. The best of this it’s fast.
🌸Идею для окончания нло на этой неделе решила позаимствовать у Нины @n_i_n_a_m_e
и её марафона #pillowdaily
(с её разрешения).
🌱Если у вас лежат готовые блоки размером 30х30 / 40х40 / 50х50 см, то пришла пора оформить их в наволочки. А лоскутная подушка всегда послужит замечательным подарком не только на Новый год, но и любой другой праздник! 🥳 🍾 🎈
🦋 Ну что, кто на этой неделе со мной дошивать подушки?
Показывайте свои законченные нло и ставьте тэг #долойнло2018
чтобы все смогли за вас порадоваться 😄😉
