    I posted this under the UFO thread as well. Wasn't quite sure if both threads were okay to post for the same item. You can see a bit of yellow around the inside of the border. That was a technique that I just recently saw for making faux piping look. Well, truth be known, if I want to use the piping look again, I will just use piping. This was a bugger to keep even. Since it is so narrow, every wobble showed. At least with real piping, I can use my invisible zipper foot to attach it with. Lesson learned there I guess. Anyhow, it is done, and will be sent off to my friend for her birthday to use in her rustic home.

    Love the plaids in your cabins! What a wonderful gift for your friend. (How long have you been in LG? We have family in that area)

    I moved here from Bend in October of 2009. Quite the culture shock for me. Only 2 LQS and Walmart for fabric. Not much for thrift stores either. Most seem to operate as boutiques. $$$ If you ever get over here to visit your family, then come on by. I'm having a hard time making friends here. Not much to do for my generation. :cry: I stay out of trouble with my quilting.

    Since I started this back in 2006, I had never heard of QAYG. Whatever I choose to work on next I will use that method. Love your kitties! Hope they don't grow up to be holy terrors as mine did. :lol:

    It is beautiful...love the colour combinations and the flash of yellow (even though it did give you a hard time!). Your friend will be really thrilled with it, I'm sure.

    I like the yellow centers! Haven't seen that color used in centers before. Reminds me of bees collecting pollen!

    The quilt is wonderful. I love the yellow center.

    Have you ever tried a pin tuck foot for the small piping. There are other feet that work too. Look for a small groove under your feet and try those

    Beautiful! Thanks for the heads up on the piping. Something I would have trouble with.

    Your friend should be very pleased with this beautiful quilt. I love the yellow vs the normal red center. It is bright and happy. Havenít tried the faux piping and may not. You did a great job and couldnít be more perfect for a rustic home.

    I love the colors and the way you used the plaid fabrics. It is very pretty.

    Since this was only supposed to be a faux piping, I just used my regular foot. I believed that I mentioned that if I ever decided to add real piping, that I would use an old invisible zipper foot which has the grove. Trying to get by here, and have to improvise much since I don't have funds to purchase all of the feet available for a H/Q. I have actually used some of the feet from my old and reliable Kenmore on Husky. Amazing! A new darning foot was 76.00 for H/Q, but the one I used on my Kenmore was 12.50. They are interchangable. Did I spend the money for the new H/Q foot? Absolutely NOT.

    Even though the yellow center is not traditional for a Log Cabin, I believe I was lacking in some reds when I started this. :thumbup:
