    Hello! I finally finished a log cabin quilt I started back in 2009 when I was sitting around waiting for my house to sell down in Florida. Just wanted to make a log cabin but didn't have a pattern, etc. I was fairly new to quilting or the making of them so lots of mistakes, seams not matching, etc.

    Well finally sold the house and moved up to Iowa to be near my mother who now lives with me. She fell in love with the log cabin which came to be 96 x 96, largest quilt ever for me. I told her she'd have to wait till I got a larger quilt system as I didn't want to have to turn the quilt for the borders. So she bought me a Innova 26" on a 12 ft frame with lots of extras. I upgraded my robotics (MQR) to go with it. I told her this quilt would be the 1st off the new system. I finished it a week ago, got the binding on, washed it with a color catcher as I always do. When I pulled it from the washer, I didn't see any color transfer so I threw it into the dryer. When it came out, OUCH!!!!! Some of the red bled onto the white. Well, too late now I suspect so I hung it up to finish drying and to photograph it for my album. Oh yes, while quilting it my machine hiccupped and stopped stitching with the needle down but my robotics kept going. I'm sure you know where this is going............I was able to stop the system before too much damage but it did have a small hole in it now. I ordered some Bo Nash powder to fix the hole but wouldn't you know it, the hole is right in the middle of stitching so I placed the patch over the hole on both sides instead of trying to stuff it inside the hole. Will try stuffing the next time. I'm not pleased with the fix but it will have to do as I can't get the patch off now. Thank goodness the hole is in a corner of the quilt so not as noticeable.

    Again, don't look too close at the non-matching seams.


    Wow what a beauty!

    I think it's beautiful! I don't notice the bleeding at all! As long as your Mom loves it that's all that really matters!

    Shared hair ripping and rending but the quilt you made for your mother is beautiful, the fabrics, the design you chose and the quilting are all lovely. Congratulations, I love the colors and the quilting makes this stunning.
    You've done a great job. Sounds like a terrific Mother/daughter relationship.

    The beauty of this quit outshines any mistakes (if any) or bleeding. (don't you hate that?) What a wonderful job you did!! Let's focus on the beauty and forget the little booboos that make you sad. You are so lucky to have such a sweet mother, and she is lucky to have you too. God bless both of you.
