|Rachael's Log Cabin Quilt|
I wish I could take credit for doing all the work on this quilt, but I made this one while still working at the hospital and I spent all my spare time assembling it with the sewing machine. I have a friend who owns a sewing shop and one service she offers is professional machine quilting. As an added bonus she made my bias binding for me and I did manage the binding by machine sewing it to the top and hand sewing it to the back. I wish I had a close up of her stipple quilting, it is lovely. I put a large pic on this post hoping the stippling would show up. This quilt looks complicated, but is actually one of the easiest to assemble. There are many designs depending on placement of the blocks. If you are new to quilting you will notice that there is a color scheme for each block. One side has the darker fabrics and the opposite side has the lighter ones. This block setup is called Lights & Darks. The small Trip Around The World Quilt (on the chair) was made years ago by my mother-in-law for my daughter's dollies. More to come.....piece, or peace to all.
