So this is the 4th quilt that I quilted for her...
She is so genious! This quilt and also a few that she made for me...was made using register ( reciept) tape as foundation. She took all those tiny scraps sewed them onto rolls of reciept tape and then trimmed them to the size she wanted..isn't that a fabulous idea?

So I went to my stash, since most of my baby/children scraps were strips this pattern worked great. We didn't know the sex of the baby so I made it bright and colorful to work for either a boy/girl. I quilted in the ditch on my Bernina. On the white strips I used a varigated thread and the feather stitch to add interest. Finished size is 36 X 47.

If you are using from your stash-----------you can make individual strips from just a few inches to however long you want-----------cut only after you've sewn a few strips end to end. When complete, they'll be sort of willy-nilly when sewn together.

Eleanor Burns has some great books on how to make log cabin quilts with this method, in various sizes. This method is fast and rewarding, and always works for me!

I've been quilting less than 2 years and the ones I started with last January were definately the work of a baby quilter. Now that I'm a toddler I can really see the difference!
