Michael is rekindling my interest in log cabin blocks with the past couple of quilts that he has brought me. I love how the layout of the blocks makes you want to just fall into the quilt visually.
Now I have to confess. Michael chose a rainbow colored thread to quilt this quilt with, but I grabbed the wrong one! I ended up using the same purple thread as we used on his fossil batik quilt, and I think that it really works, but I'm still annoyed that I messed it up. Next time, read better!
This is a really fun quilt. The green batik looks like it's got fossilized skeletons in it, so that's what I called it. Since it's so organic looking, we went with a leaf quilting design, and then I had fun and put some with leaves in the leaves instead of just a spine. Really, a fun quilt to play on.
Grace and I share a love of 30's prints as well as a love of quilting in general. This is a small quilt, only 42"square, but still really fun. Grace said to quilt it with "just a meander", but I thought it needed something more, and did my favorite pantograph design, "Tangles" on it instead.
Grace has 3 grandchildren, this lucky little girl is getting a new big girl bed since there's a new baby taking her little bed. Grace chose minky for the backing, and I quilted it with a lime green thread. The green was perfect and it shows ups just enough.
Isn't this the best way to learn the states? I remember the my brothers and I had map floor puzzle when we were kids, probably very much like this, not not as soft and cuddly. Grace told me to "have fun" with this, so I just played and did different designs in the various states. I must admit, that my US geography still needs a lot of work.
