Mom's last quilt....for now
Before Mom moved to Richmond she was apparently very busy piecing tops. She had a ton of time to herself when she lived with her sister. So when she moved here she had 3 quilt tops and another QAYG (quilt as you go) quilt underway. Now she has 3 quilts that need binding!
This log cabin is the third of the quilts that Marcy and I quilted for her this summer. I'm pretty sure that this was the oldest of her UFO projects. I think she wasn't sure that she liked it but once I spread it out to see the full quilt I actually like it a lot. I think it will be beautiful on a bed.
As time goes on I'm doing more and more with my arm. So for this quilt I decided on a pantograph with some diagonal movement but short strokes. The Loose Leaf panto worked great and also looks really good on the quilt. If you are a new longarmer this is a great beginner pantograph that also looks wonderful on quilts.
I like that the center of all of her blocks start with this fussy cut motif. I think this will also be the binding fabric.
Next up for me is my Stars At Sea quilt. It's intended to be a booth sample for the AQS show in October so I need to get it done!

Log cabin has always been a favourite of mine and if I ever were to do another sane quilt I think it would be one of my top choices to attempt. Don't hold your breath tho!!!

That's an interesting layout of good ol' log cabin blocks, and I really like it!

The quilt turned out wonderful! I am a real fan of log cabin quilts. I have never seen this layout and I like it a lot.

I like the sort of gingham look that the lights and darks make!

I Love this quilt. I can see why you do too. Your mom has a great eye for value and color placement.
