    I decided over New Years to attempt to make a quilt. Nothing big (60x60), nothing fancy. I decide to make the Quilt in One Day - Log Cabin from the book by the same name.
    Borrowed a sewing machine since I was in S. Alabama, and went to work.
    I first went down to Hancocks in Mobile to select fabric. Nothing like the fabric stores in California, it was certainly cheaper!
    The top is doable in one day.... But the rest... I stayed on California time.

    Anyhow here is my quilt in three days. Log Cabin in the 'All Sevens' configuration. This is my first totally complete quilt, binding and all.

    Tim,
    That's a luscious quilt!
    The colors remind me of wine and grape juice! Just yummy!
    Great job! Gotta love Eleanor and her "Quilt it a Day" books!

    Congrats on your first complete quilt! Gorgeous! Love the red and purple. I also have a red and purple quilt in the making and have been worried that it might be "too much," but now that I see yours looking so good, I am encouraged to continue with mine!

    The very first quilt class I took was doing this pattern and method, back in the olden days. I remember turning the quilts right-side up after batting was added. (It was a loooooong day and I didn't finish). One lady in the class did get a crib quilt done, but I just cannot manage a bed-size quilt in a day.


    Thanks for the memories. And thank you Ginny, wherever you are.
