Through Thick and Thin

It is finally finished!

I honestly couldn’t remember how long ago I’d started this quilt. I knew it was at least 2 years ago and just discovered I started it in January 2015.

So…Through Thick and Thin, my king size, scrappy, mostly batik, log cabin quilt, made with 2.5″ and 1.25″ logs, was only 3 years in the making!

I stopped at forty-two, 15″ blocks even though I knew it wasn’t going to be big enough for my bed. I didn’t want wide borders all around, so I decided sashing was the way to go…even though I’d personally never seen it done on a log cabin quilt. And even w/the sashing, I still needed borders! I added 6″ side borders and 2″ top/bottom borders.

I quilted it w/this modern panto that brings to mind a fence of “Asian” influence. My friend GayLee thinks it resembles a tree. Regardless, it’s perfect for my quilt.

The layout is an offset barn raising and the quilt is longer than it is wide. But when I put it on the bed, I liked the fit better turned the other way. So now, what were supposed to be wider side borders, are now top/bottom borders.

I am totally in love w/it and can’t stop taking pictures. The fur babies love it too!

Have a fantastic weekend y’all!

Confidence comes from GRACE…daring to believe that in spite of, not only the obstacles we face daily, but our own unworthiness, God has made us His promises!

A Starlett is Born!

This beauty has been a WIP (work in progress) for over a year too.

It’s a commission for a friend who kept saying, “no rush”, so I did no such thing!

I took so long, she actually forgot what the pattern she chose looked like!

The pattern is called Starlett by Me and My Sister Designs.

I added the sashing so that it would drape on a queen size bed.

Isn’t she lovely?!

She was quilted by my super talented friend, @debclem6 (IG). Thanks Deb!

Until next time, happy quilting!

Goal Update

Lately I’ve been obsessed w/all the Christmas/Holiday themed items I’m planning to make next year! Yep! AND I’m going to start in July! This girl’s got plans!

I’ve been a Pinterest pinning fool! My sis has to be sick of hearing about/seeing all the things I’m obsessed with, which is mostly snowmen…and stockings!

Back to now…I have one more goal UFO to “finish” before I start other new projects.

I was shooting for year end but my Sparkle Punch Christmas quilt is still in the closet. I’ll be pulling it out this weekend. “It” ain’t even an “It” yet, just a bunch of squares really.

Here’s an old progress pic before I took it off the design wall.

My new goal is for it to be a completed quilt top by end of January. It’s going to be fabulous!

Thanks for stopping by.
