We went down to Cardiff, in South Wales, UK for a week, sadly John was quite poorly for most of the trip, but on the upside I took all my sewing stuff and finished the quilt top, just need to sort the backing out then will get this baby finished and present to the lady I was caring for before DH John fell ill, she doesn't know I have made it for her, so I hope she likes it! She had said she would love a log cabin lap quilt, this is 4' x 6', I am not adding any borders as it is getting too big!

:lol: :D :roll:

See the dogs!!

just a swirly all over across the log cabin blocks and echo quilting or stippling around the applique would be striking! it is BEAUTIFUL!!!

I have a Janome 9000 machine which hasn't a very big throat, I can do free motion meander, do you think that would detract from the log cabins, I thought of trying to emphasis the curves created by the 'uneven' block design, but I am scared I will wreck it

:shock:

I have done it totally scrappy, just cut up LOTS of strips (think I have enough to make another one!!) what I thought 'went' then threw in a few brights to cheer it up! I was luckily as there are no two fabrics alike touching, not bad going as I just grabbed a strip, cut a chunk off and stitched on totally randomly, every block is different, the colours are much brighter in reality,

;-)

Thanks everyone for your comments :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:
