Back to the start

At the beginning of the month my goal for October was to get the 9 curved log cabin blocks sewn together, sandwiched, pinned and work out how to quilt them.     I am pleased to say that my goal was reached and over the last couple of weeks work has been carried out solidly on the quilting which  has resulted in a finish.  The many pins used to hold the binding in place while sewing it down.


 Back to where I started with the last stitch going into the binding.  Ooops my hand is in the way.


Once a quilt gets to a certain point with the end in sight I like to concentrate on it and see it completed especially this one as I have been making one coloured block every month since January for the rainbow colour challenge so it seems like it has been hanging around forever.

Here is the front.  Normally I  put a border on my quilts but felt that this did not need one.


As seen from the back


This is the first time that I have used a white backing and to be honest it was just as hard to work on white as it is on a black background.  Pulling the white thread through and trying to find it on the white backing to tie off and bury was quite frustrating at times.  

I am pleased with the result and the quilt is proudly hanging on a quilt ladder in the family room.

Back soon and in the meantime


Happy sewing all

The quilt looks absolutely beautiful without borders. I think borders would have taken away the impact of those blocks.

This is a beautiful quilt, Karen. It is fun to use scraps to create something bright, cheerful, warm, and inviting like this.
