    making a quilt for me

    I have not had a quilt since we sold our house and all its contents, but now that I am settled, I wanted to make a quilt for me. The small-piece Log Cabin is one we have made dozens of times, the pieces start out 1" wide. All colors are used. I had a bunch of 4 x 4 small tops already put together, so I sewed 16 of them together. Here it is laid out on the floor, have to sew the seams the other way, maybe on my next day off.

    Hope I will get it quilted before the cold weather comes! First I have to finish an afghan I am making, then finish quilting a WIP I picked up at a yard sale.

    Good for you for making a quilt for yourself! It's gorgeous and I'm sure you'll have lots of snuggly night under it.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Even though you used "all colors", it gives a wonderfully muted impression that I really like.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    What a wonderful setting for your cabins. A very nice "for me" quilt.

    Beautiful quilt and you've inspired me. We sold our home and everything in it as well. We're still sifting through the things we've kept, trying to find a place for them. I am going through tons of fabric and quilting things to see what will go to my guild and what I will keep. I'm not overwhelmed, but I can't seem to get my sewing mojo back. Your pic helps a lot!

    Wow great log cabin, I had enough trouble making a 12 1/2 inch block there would be no way I could make one that size.

    Very pretty, however, I don't think I could use 1" strips. I've done a couple table runners using 1 1/2" strips and that is as far as I'll go. Congratulations to you though on accomplishing this magnificent endeavor.
