    Diamond Log Cabin Star Finished--Hand Quilted

    About one year ago, I completed the top for this quilt. I wanted it hand quilted and found a very nice Amish lady who does beautiful work and now it is in the "done" pile.

    This is the back with her amazing work. Feathers, hearts and each log was SID around the perimeter. She does beautiful work.

    Here you can see the SID. It is more pink than rose to the eye with a floral design in the fabric.

    Here is one of the diamonds that surround the center stars. I tried my hand at dyeing to get the color wash effect that I was unable to find.

    This is the corner triangle that shows her quilting. I hope you enjoy seeing a project finally completed. It was my first attempt at piecing and I am sew hooked on quilting now.
