Sew Many Projects, So Little Time

This is showcase of my projects in various stages.

Karen's Cabin

I made this quilt for my cousin Karen. I finished the quilting last night. All that's left is the binding which I seem to have misplaced. I'll have to get more fabric if I don't find it soon. Karen has been waiting for a quilt from me for over 2 years. I was always busy doing something else and figured it's time to get it out of the way. 

After considering many patterns I went back to my old favourite, the Log Cabin. I visited an out of town quilt shop and they had a log cabin quilt hanging there that I found to be quite lovely. The pattern was free from a website and they call it "Zazu". The shop owner gave me the website. It was so long ago that I can't remember what it was called. I used EQ6 on my home computer in order to get the necessary measurements for yardage and rotary cutting.

I named the quilt "Karen's Cabin". The fabrics are from Timeless Treasures "Amelia" line. The back of the quilt is a rail fence design (I like pieced quilt backs).

This isn't the best photo. When I get to my desktop computer I'll post a better one and one of the back as well.

Karen,

I love your quilt, your cousin is very lucky. I also really like the log cabins, my 1st attempt at a full sized quilt was a quilt as you go log cabin and the first quilt book I ever bought was Elenor Burns "Log Cabin in a Day"
