    Green Log Cabin - Stars border

    Wanted to share a pic of my green log cabin with stars on the border that my Mom made and hand quilted for me a couple of years ago. This is a queen size, with extra drop and length for pillow tuck. The logs are 1" finished. She made this a few years before I started making quilts and I had NO idea how much time and effort went into making a quilt! I cherish it even more now Thanks for looking!

    Oh my goodness it's beautiful. My mother made beautiful quilts, and I didn't really appreciate all the work until I started quilting. My mom hand pieced, and hand quilted hers.

    Very beautiful quilt your Mother made and hand quilted for you! I'm sure you will treasure it forever and I hope you have children to pass it down to. It should be kept in the family as long as possible! Quite the treasure!

    OMG! That is beautiful and the workmanship. I can't even begin to think of how long that must have taken her. How wonderful to have a piece of her right there whenever you want it. Not that you didn't love it before but now that you know all that goes into it you really LOVE it.

    Wow, what a work of art. It is a lot of work and so good to recognize that. Love the little yellow squares peeking out.

    Thanks Everyone - Mom has made quilts for more than 50 years, all 4 kids have at least one hand quilted quilt, all the grandkids have at least one, the great grands are getting machine quilted She hand quilted everything until she had a shoulder injury which made that almost impossible. She used her mom's quilting frame which still stands in Mom's house. About 2 years ago, she opened a LAQ to the public, using a Gammill Statler Stitcher.
    Her hand appliqued quilts are to die for - will try to get a couple of pics of one of her Baltimore Album's that's hanging in her shop and share those as well. She has won many ribbons over the years with her work.
    I also used this quilt on my bed for several years and it is a beauty in real life.
    Funny thing - before she got the LA machine - I wasn't even interested in making quilts. Just couldn't see me spending that much time working on one project. Now I can't make the tops fast enough to start working on the quilting design lol.

    Your quilt is beautiful. My DD wants a quilt that color for her new house so I am looking for fabric to do one for her.
