Log Cabin Super Finish


 I really love this quilt. My main quilting style is scrappy and this is certainly is scrappy. I started with a 2.5" square for the middle and attached 2.5" strips (low volume to one side and brights to the other) and trimmed as I went.


A close up of some of the prints I used. It used up a bunch of scraps. I hand quilted this and sent it off to a friend's daughter.

I have a goal of giving away 8 quilts this year (ones I have already completed or old unfinished quilt tops I finish). I am up to 4 so far and have plans for another 3 this summer. So close.

Check out this awesome extra wide backing I bought for another UFO I want to finish. I just need to decide on how to quilt it
