Monday is the day I put the magazine quilt in the mail. I have called it ‘Too Many Log Cabins Are Not Enough’. It has 116 log cabin blocks in it, and I even made more, the 8 extra that I put to use in the little table topper for my Mum’s friend.
I won’t have to think about that quilt again for a while which is nice, and I suspect I’ve not been too interested in working on much quilty stuff over the past week or so because the magazine quilt has been occupying too much of my mind.
I have pulled a quilt out of my UFO pile which I really love, and I’ve decided that since I don’t have the deadline any longer I think I’ll quilt it! This is a quilt I made a few years ago, the pattern is by Java House Quilts, and I was just drawn to it. Amy of course adores it, and would love for it to be finished. I think the reason I’ve been hesitant to quilt it is because I’m not sure what quilting to do on the dolphin. The rest of the quilt will be a breeze, but the dolphin?? Anyone want to give me an idea or two? I was thinking about maybe some hand quilting, but I’m just not sure.
The dolphin quilt was kind of a stash quilt even back when I made it. I got much of the log cabin fabric from my stash, all of the fabric for the dolphin was stash fabric. I think I only got a few colours for the logs, and the blue paisley print from the store.
I have the backing fabric already, I think I have enough batt, I have already purchased the quilting thread … so bring it on! I think I'll give it a good press first tho ... :-)
