Always love a log cabin. That's what I have been working on, right -- the big one. And it reminds me, have you seen the new magazine "Primitive Quilts and Projects?". I looked for it locally but finally had to break down and subscribe. There is a super log cabin in the first issue. Paper pieced because the logs appear to finish at 3/4". I refuse to paper piece but using bigger strips and trimming every round works too for narrow logs. But I digress. Here is a great sampler. I am just a sucker for red and greens.
Here are a couple of little applique blocks. These were up high and a tall person saw me trying to take the pics and offered to take them for me so you get a head on view, not the from the bottom up you would have had to settle for if I had taken them. Butterflies are not my favourite but I love the flowers and look at that button caterpillar! Cute, cute cute.
Love the happy watering can.
And I love flags. This is a different flag treatment. I don't think I have seen one like this before. Look, two colour coordinated pictures -- wonder how I managed that?
Nice colours I think.
I have now done 1 stitchery. And I have piping pinned to it to make a little pillow. But it's still waiting like that. I need to do more so I could have something like this little snowman.
This is the quilt he came from.
Now this quilt was really different. I have a big jar of labels I have been collecting for years. One of these days I will do something with them. I am glad I have been saving them since they are rapidly disappearing from clothing. I like the fact that there is no scratchy label at the back of my neck but I do miss how cute or pretty some labels were.
You are probably wondering why I am talking labels when this is a selvage quilt. But look, it has Neiman Marcus ribbon -- almost a label. Certainly label like, right? And of course you know I am now cutting selvage strips, too. I have a bucket full for some future something.
I like the colours in this one. And stars are always great. And this is double stars. I think this is a Miss Rosie pattern. I like Carrie Nelson patterns -- great for scrap quilts.
A bigger piece of it.
And bigger still. I must have really liked this one! I like the border, too. Lots of half square triangles in this one! So what method do you use? I have used Thangles but usually I cut them 7/8" bigger, draw the line and sew on both sides of it. Kind of lots of steps but they come out okay I think.
Blue, blue, blue. But stars.
Now this one is more than stars. This is just focused on one part of the quilt.
See, it's a row by row. With chubby little snowmen! And a farm. I love this. Anyone know the pattern?
