There was no pressing urgency to finish this quilt, but there was so little left to do that I finished it anyway. It's always good to finish things.
|This one started back here, and comes out in rainbow colour order.|
This one is just backed with a nice, easy vintage sheet.
And almost all of the fabrics on the front are from vintage sheets too. The red at the centre of my 'rainbow' is from an old, old scrap I scavenged from my Mum's old fabric stash, and there's an old table cloth in there too.
It's quite small so the square spiral quilting was very straightforward. All in all it was a very well behaved quilt.
And definitely this large log cabin design is one I'll do again with different fabric/colour choices. There's another lovely blog I'm going to link up with today - My Quilt Infatuation on 'Needle and Thread Thursday'. There are so many beautiful quilts there to have a browse through (try the 'My Quilts' link along the top), including a few along the same design lines as my little picnic quilt here - have a look at this one:
By a strange coincidence this was the very same quilt that set me off wanting to try this giant log cabin design in the first place (only I spotted it via 'The Crafty Pod' initially, which is where the link in my first post took you, so it's great to be sending you off on a link straight to the source this time around!).
Anyway, hopefully you can now see why I want to try the design again in a different fabric/colour choice. Watch this space!
And I'll be back tomorrow with a photo, Sally.
