    King size log cabin

    This was my first (and so far only) king size quilt. A good friend of my bf's had me make it as a christmas present for his wife this past year. He picked the colors he wanted and told me I could pick the pattern. I've always wanted to do this one. I did it completely on my regular machine including the quilting. I was extremely happy with how it turned out though I'm not sure I want to do a king size quilt anytime soon! It is huge, my teen son and brother were standing on the sofa holding it up. Oh and I did it completely from start to finish in 1 month!

    "This was my first (and so far only) king size quilt." Loved your comment - a friend made a king sized quilt and named it "Alpha and Omega"...the first and the last...and she had someone else quilt it for her.

    Gorgeous quilt. Love log cabins. Love the arrangement and colors. With all the pressing and trimming you were really busy.

    Thank you for the nice comments! It wasn't all that difficult to do the piecing. I bought the book Make a Quilt in a day: Log Cabin Pattern by Eleanor Burns so and that really made the piecing very easy. I literally worked on it after work every single day from anywhere to an hour to 6 hours to get in done in time for Christmas. The quilting was quite a challenge. I set up 2 6ft folding tables in my living room to pin and quilt it. This was before we moved into our house and I had a sewing area. My kids thought it was quite a sight watching me do that one. It took me 3 days non-stop to do, sewing for 12+ hours each day, which I did on my days off of work. I quilted it on diagonals.

    What a beautiful quilt. I love the colors reminds me of Mint Chocolate chip ice cream.

    Wow, what a marathon to finish it in a month! I really like the pattern and you did a great job with it, I can only imagine how your shoulders must have protested quilting it for 6 hours at a time

    Very nice! I would call it Mint Chocolate CHip! HMMMMM...I think it's time for some ice cream! I can't believe you did it all in one month! I am sure your friend will love it.
