I made this neutral value log cabin quilt earlier this year, and now it's time to get it quilted and off my WIP list!
The quilt is big enough to cover a queen mattress now, but it doesn't drape very much. I've decided to add a piano key border and a narrow sashing on either side of that.
I've got all the piano key pieces paired up, and I'm one-third of the way through piecing them into 4-strip sets.
This quilt is from Judy Martin's book, Log Cabin Quilt Book called Summer Lake. My fabrics have so little difference between the light and dark values, I think I need a narrow sashing to help define the borders. I don't know which fabric I'll use for sashing yet, but I've got a day of sewing piano keys to think of something :)
My goal for September is to have this quilt finished and ready for gifting! Linking up with Shanna's goal setting party at Fibre of All Sorts.
Mary is a local quilting friend who loves to piece, but gets bogged down during quilting. These are 2 of the quilts I machine quited for her this spring :)
Working with local schools has been very fun and the students are pushing me to design ever more interesting layouts from simple subunits. Take a look at the third quilt I helped to make this year!
Memory quilts aren't always cute and cuddly, this t-shirt quilt is all about hard rock and good times!
A local Mom asked me to turn her children's baby outfits into a bed-sized quilt and I happily agreed!
A very sentimental Mom asked me to make a bed-sized quilt from her children's baby clothes, and this is going to be one beautiful memory quilt!
