    add another top to the pile...

    i had better finish something soon. the attraction of contracting out to long armers grows ever stronger...

    i like this one a lot. it went together pretty fast and i just think it's super cozy looking. i miss the heyday of ssi and debbie mumm/theresa kogut. these fabrics came from a little shop that's closing, and his stock is pretty "dated" but i truly love these sweet prints and gentle colourways.

    it's for my mother. i have ambivalent feelings about that. we'll just call it a debt paid and leave it at that.

    thanks for being here!

    I like that a lot! love the way the strips look "outlined". I agree wholeheartedly about your colors. Congratulations!

    Nothing better than a sweet traditional log cabin in comfortable colors. And a quilt top hanging up with snow on the ground.

    I agree with Kitsie. the strips look outlined. I think it is a great top.

    Absolutely beautiful. Don;t think I would have traipsed out into the snow for the picture.

    I love those calico fabrics, also. No matter what your debt, you can consider it paid with that great quilt!

    I think certain patterns look best with certain colors and this works well together!!

    Very nice flimsy! Nothing better than blue quilts in my opinion. I share the problem of the growing pile of tops.

    Thank you for sharing! I am a longtime fan of SSI and Debbie Mumm. Love the fabrics of today but really miss Debbie Mumm fabrics of the 80's/90's. I still have some in my stash and I hoard them! Can't bring myself to use them up, lol. Your quilt is lovely.

    Beautiful....some day I'm going to venture out and make a log cabin. I tried making a block once but it didn't look so good.
