This log cabin quilt, done in pinks, blues and purples is a baby gift for my new granddaughter, Lillian, who was born June 4, 2012. The fabric was purchased during the April 2012 AQS Show in Paducah and quilted with threads from Superior Threads. Log cabin rulers from Marti Michell made the cutting task a snap!
King Tut, Lava and So Fine brands in 4 shades were used to do the quilting. It was quilted In-The-Ditch first for stabilization and I purposely left the center area unquilted to cause it to poof out some. The light sides of the blocks were quilted using a pebbling technique. For the dark sides of the blocks I created what I call ”funky flower feathers” and they really turned out great! Both of those techniques were done with Lava thread. The borders were quilted in a medium-small meander with a varigated King Tut thread and finally, all four techniques were blended together on the back with So Fine. The color selected for the bobbin, allowed the quilting on the back to be almost invisible.
It was a 1st Place winner at our fair in Northwest Alabama, near Muscle Shoals, Florence & Tuscumbia.
