Third Time !!!! ??


Sometimes you just have to start OVER - and OVER !!


I made this top almost ten years ago when we lived in Greensboro, NC.  I had just begun to quilt again, and I saw it on the front cover of a book called , appropriately, "Log Cabin Quilts" by Rita Weiss and Linda Causee...  it took my breath away.

I loved the book, cause the instructions were so very clear, and it gave finished measurements of all the different size blocks that made up the quilt. 


I made this almost exactly like the original, colors and all - except I put a plain border on, just 'cause' it felt right to me.

And then I tried to quilt it...........................  one of my first attempts at machine quilting - and I really didn't know how to sandwich and baste properly.......... and there were GIANT PUCKERS on the back.............

So I unstitched, and it became a flimsy again............

Three or four years later.....................  tick, tock............ I decided to hand quilt it.............

I did about 10% of it................. and it sat, and it sat AND IT SAT.........

so yesterday, I UNSTITCHED the hand quilting.................

At least now I am an accomplished machine quilter, and I will be able to do a proper job........

WILL I DO IT SOON ???

oh, I hope so, cause I do love this little beauty.................

Stay tuned...................

Now that is patience! The top does deserve what you can do now.
