Log Cabin Progress

No automatic alt text available.

I finished making the 17 remaining blocks. I started to pair them up so I could sew 2 blocks together.

Here's my little pile of 2 blocks sewed together. There are 60 pairs, 120 single blocks. My neighbor had made 151 blocks. She purchased so much fabric that she could have easily made 2 quilts. I needed the 17 blocks so I could make the quilt with an even number of rows.

I'll end up with 42 of these blocks. I'll set them as 6 blocks by 7 blocks. It should be around 90" X 105". She wanted a large queen and I think that's what she's getting! I'll be talking to her after the quilt top is finished. I would love to stipple this quilt. I think it's the fastest way and I don't think she will want to pay for custom work. She has the backing and binding all ready in the totes she gave me. There's so  much extra fabric in those totes! I'd feel bad if I didn't use up as much as I can.

Over the weekend, we went to The Walker Stalker Convention in Boston. My kids love this show and I love it too! It's one of the few things we do as a family. Here's a picture of me with my daughter and son. We had a great time. They paid for meet and greets but I just admire from a distance! The actors are very friendly and fun to meet.

One last family photo! My mother found this and sent it to me today. That's my dad with his sister. We think it's from the late 1920's. It's a wonderful photo although a bit sad.

    1. Log Cabin is a great block. Love making it scrappy. I think this quilt top is coming together faster than I thought.

  3. I was making Log Cabins today, too. The last blocks I needed for Long Time Gone. As the family genealogist, I absolutely love seeing old photos like the one of your father and aunt. I think I see some family resemblance. :-)
