I did work on a quilt today getting several more blocks pieced together. I wasn’t able to sew as long as I wanted to because I had to work tonight but I was able to get some good machine time in.  Since I have been bitten by the ‘quilt bug’ I am finding it very therapeutic to get in at least an hour a day. Gosh, I’m loving this addiction.

Angele - I love your log cabin quilt. I have never seen it with the black line before, it really sets the pattern off.

Wendy -  The colors you chose are great. Your quilt is very fun and eye catching. I love the flowers you quilted over the blocks.

Angele, I went to your gallery and got a close up of your log cabin.  WOW!  Did you applique that red strip in the quilt?  Great job!

This is the first quilt that I have compleated this year.  I am so excited.

It's beautiful Wendy. Nice work on the quilting.

Your "Downtown" quilt is gorgeous!  Is this a pattern, I've never seen a log cabin like it.  Your choice of colors truly fit the name.  Please share more information on this marvelous work of art.

Thanks It is from the book "Blendable Curves" by Peggy Barkle.  The funniest part is that I began with her first pattern which was called Curvaceous Cabins, picked out the fabrics for my niece's quilt and realized after that she had one in black and white a few pages down the road.... lol well it will teach me to read through it all :)

The first part was intimidating, cutting through my formed blocs but it made things easy with the bias strip.  Worked out great and not as hard as it looks in the long run.  She has quite a few nice ideas...

Angele,

Thanks for the book recommendation.  I'm heading over to add it to my next Amazon order!

Wendy - I love your custom quilting.  I am still pretty fearful of doing anything other than pantograph's.

Angele - That is quite a unique quilt.  I'll have to check out the book.  It makes quite a statement!

I had a great birthday yesterday.  Started out at the Farmhouse Cafe in Omaha.  OMG...if you LOVE cinnamon rolls, you have to go here!!

We then drove to Lincoln, NE and went to Calico House, Quilted Kitty and Cosmic Cow quilt shops.

This is a cheater panel but it is so cute (I was going to cut out the squares and do my own design but my husband insist I don't).  I will border with the prints shown, quilt it, and give it to that grandson of ours (before he is too old to beg me not to make him any more quilts!)  LOL  Probably for Christmas...or birthday...

Backing for Camden's quilt.

 The next two groupings will be for two quilts using the same pattern to go in the guest room with two twin beds.  The fabrics are different enough but still complement each other.  The walls are painted the taupe color so both will look good in there.

 

These fabrics will be used for a BQ2 quilt.  They had the pattern on the clearance table and I didn't have that one yet.  I knew it was a sign.   

I also bought a few more B & W prints for my stash, a brown on the sales rack I couldn't resis, and a fabric to bind a tablerunner I made. 

We went to the Quilt Museum and then to James Arthur Vineyards for a wine tasting, and dinner at Carlos O'Kelley's.  It was a wonderful day!

Today, I quilted the quilt for my sister's Christmas gift.  She is a knitter so I hope she will appreciate this quilt.

 There are two "knitter" fabrics in the quilt.  One with the sheep's knitting and the other with yarn and knitting terms spelled out with the yarn.
