Totally Finished, Name Changed

So this time the brown log cabin quilt is totally finished, binding, label and all 🙂  Oh, and it’s had a name change to “Cabin in the Woods” per popular opinion of those present at label writing time.

Here’s a pic of the solids from my stash that have gone into the box heading to my daughter in Turkey.  She asked could I send her some solids….how about 6.5 yards of them????  Can you say “stash out”?

SolidsBut a bit of thrifted fabric made it’s way in 🙂  They are really great additions…neutral, plaid, red & orange 😉

DWM – A Finish and a New Addition

The brown/white thrifted shirt log cabin quilt, Going Up, is almost finished.  Woo hoo!!  Just hand sewing the binding and a label remain to be done.  So this is my design wall for DWM 🙂          Going UpSome more pictures, including the backing, which used shirt backs.  You’ll see Harley, our dog, approves 🙂

This weekend a fellow quilter friend, Wanetha, & I spent a marathon day putting the top for our guild’s raffle quilt together.  Only borders left to go!  We’re pretty pleased with how it’s turning out.

More Rainbow Blocks

I’ve not worked on the Rainbow Scrap Challenge blocks in awhile….missing the August and September RSC colors of light green and orange.  I sewed up the string blocks and used them to make the bar blocks.  It feels good to get back on track….next I’ll make the pinwheel and churn dash blocks 🙂
