Log Cabin Quilt

I am so happy to have finished my scrappy log cabin.  This was my first log cabin quilt, but it won't be my last!  My friend Dora Scheer from Dora Quilts asked me if she could quilt it for me, of course my answer was yes!  She did a great job and quilted it with gold thread that looks wonderful!

You can really see it on my pieced back.  I just used a lot of my odd pieces of green fabric on the back.

All I had to do when I got it back was bind it!  She sent back the pieces she cut off from the backing of the quilt, so I cut it into 2 1/2 inch strips to make a scrappy binding.

I found these clips in my scrap booking stuff which worked great alongside my wonder clips.

I am going to give this quilt to my mom's best friend who I call Aunt Ginny.
 I took pictures of the quilt in my front yard, I thought all the greens were a great background for my scrappy greens.
After seeing the finished quilt, I almost want to keep the quilt myself!

Update on my health:
I am feeling better each day, I still have a few pains and my belly button still hurts.  I get frustrated having to stop so often when I am trying to get my quilting done, but I know that it is just part of my healing process.

Have a great week ya'll!

I know Aunt Ginnie will be thrilled when she gets her quilt! What a nice friend you have that did the quilting for you. The quilt is lovely and will be loved for many years

I love log cabin quilts (I think I've made 7). They're so versatile ... change the setting, and you get an entirely different looking quilt. I want to make at least one more set in a star pattern. I'm glad you're healing up and am praying that you'll be back to normal soon.

I think the back of quilts is a perfect place to use up leftover fabric. I do it often. It reduces scraps and saves money on quilt backs.

Your finish is lovely.
