HQAL: Log Cabin Update

For this check up I am excited to say – I have a finish! A big, just in time Autumn happy dance finish!

I started this quilt at the end of January 2020. Some of you may remember this was a kit that I found confusing. I decided to reconfigure and simplify the pattern. Changing it meant I had to add some material from my stash to what was precut and provided. Below is the original design with one of 6 directions pages, and the pattern I decided to use instead.

For the backing I used material again from my stash. I needed to use three different pieces to make up the backing. I love the affect.

For my next project I decided to finish a children’s quilt I had put aside some time ago. I hand pieced each block, however I did use my machine to attach each row and for attaching the border. The top measures 43’X43′.

I found this adorable fabric at Joann’s. I love the name of the fabric pattern, Magic Moon – isn’t that sweet? I am using Hobbs 80/20 Bonded Fibers Premium Fibers batting. I actually doubled it up so this will be a nice warm blanket.

I’ve got a start
