She is Done

My quilt of the last post is done, except for sewing the binding to the back, so it's only done in my head I guess! Please excuse the horrible floor under the quilt. That's in my sewing studio and we have a wood floor that's going to go down there but heck knows when that will occcur.

After I finished the top I got it right to my quilter who did a fantastic job as usual.
I have this quilting pattern on a couple of other quilts and I love it. It's a wheat pattern and it's just so curvy and happy. This quilt with all it's straight lines needed some curves.
I know why everyone buys jelly rolls and layer cakes because other wise they'd have to deal with the mess in the picture above. Those are some fabrics I pulled for a couple of scrappy quilts for my grandson's bunk beds he'll be in at some point. I need a better organization system! But I love scrappy quilts and that mess up there will become quilts pictures below.
This is a Quilts and More magazine I've had for a while. Just getting from the pile of cloth to the quilt is a little more work with a messy stash but I'll get there eventually.

  2. Thank you for sharing your finished quilt. It's gorgeous. I was hoping we could see it when it was all together. And please share your grandson's quilt when the decisions are made and you start getting it together. I know it will be great.

  7. Beautiful quilt!

    I had that same floor in my kitchen before we remodeled. (but I lived with it for the first 13 years we lived here)

  9. A beautiful quilt. Nothing says home more than a log cabin quilt and the stars just add the crowing touch.

  11. From those untamed piles of scraps come some of the most wonderful quilts - I'll take that over a jelly roll any day *s*

  12. It is really gorgeous. I can't wait to see what you create from your pile of fabrics. Scrappy is so much more interesting than those co-ordinated matchy. matchy layer cake quilts, at least to me. And they'll never go out of style like the co-ordinated fabric lines do.

I pray that risen from the dead,
In glory I will stand,
A crown perhaps upon my head,
And a needle in my hand.
