Basic log cabin quilt layout guide

Feel free to share this layout guide.


Black and Red and Gold All Over

Finished up this hexie quilt top this evening.  Not sure how I’ll be quilting it yet.  This was another one of the amazing kits that I had purchased at Good Wives Co.  It was in Marion, OH but unfortunately closed a few months ago.  So sad :(

2 Blue Chickens!

Well, I couldn’t stop myself – I made two more chicken pincushions.  This time – as stuffed toys for my nephews.  Jake (4½) loved his and we immediately named him Blueberry.  However little Jack (2½) wasn’t as impressed and threw it at me!

Candy Coated

Worked on quilting my Candy Coated quilt today.  I loaded the quilt on Saturday and so when I got down to my studio, I was ready to begin on Sunday afternoon.

Here’s the quilt draped on the frame.  (before the binding was turned and stitched down)  I used a simple geometric design that I created in Art & Stitch.


Here’s a different camera angle with the light hitting it just right – making it easier to see the stitching.


While watching TV on Sunday evening, I finished the binding.
