...aka "Toad River Log Cabin" - the top is complete and is off to the long arm quilter to do her magic. It measures 93" X 93" and the logs finish to 1" which is as big as I like to take them, usually preferring narrower widths.
This was one intense piecing project and I kept going over and over every inch of it once it was together - did I flip a block, are the logs where they are supposed to be...did any identical colors get placed next to each other? (Think that happened once??)
A bird's eye view - taken from the loft...
Will share a photo of the quilt when it returns and the binding gets added. (Pattern is Judy Martin's Snake River Log Cabin)
No doubt, like most of you, when a quilt top is dropped off at the L.A. quilter, you just don't say - here it is and leave right away...there are quilting designs to be decided on and thread color choices to go over. And usually there are other quilters visiting at the same time - which of course means everyone gets to talking and sharing...don't you love that immediate sisterhood! I just had to take a couple of photos of one of the other quilts waiting to be quilted. (Taken with my iPhone so not quite as sharp) The quilt is about twin size (shown folded here)
Isn't this amazing?
Those little squares are finished to 1/2" - it took the quilter 8 years to complete the top which was inspired by an antique quilt she had seen and wanted to reproduce. During those 8 years, she traveled all over the world with her family and of course, collected "a few" fabrics along the way. There was much discussion as to how it should be quilted - sure hope to see at least a photo of the completed quilt!!
Wishing everyone a week filled with creativity and holiday preparations...thank you so much for dropping by to visit!
