Another Quarter Log Cabin


Quarter Log Cabin in Blue .  Friend Linda "cleaned up her sewing space before company arrived" and donated a LOT of lovely blue fabrics to the FREE TABLE at our local All Day Sew.  I snatched it up and 2 months later it turned into this!  Thank you Linda.  I added the background blue-gray .  Note the unexpected lavendar strips!  This is the 3rd or 4th Quarter Log Cabin I've made.  Size is approx. 70 x 82.  I added a faux flange binding.  

The back.  I am practicing with rulers.  

Plaid Pleasures was made from real left-over fabric from real shirts I've made over many years.  NO SHIRTS were cut up.  The unexpected "spools" was a nice surprise.  

Back.  Size is approx. 56 x 73.   LOVE the colors, but I did toooooo much quilting and am unhapy with the end result altho ... "from a galloping horse...".   Live and Learn.

Hopefully I will post more frequently.  This last summer was totally lost due to having an old body inside an active mind!  Get your mammograms - the  advances in medical technology makes some "repairs" almost simple altho time-consuming.  


  1. Hello, Elaine. Two finishes! WOW! They are both lovely. You did an excellent job with the rulers. Bravo! Enjoy! ;^)

    1. Thanks for not giving up on me - long time too busy to post anything! 8-(((

  2. Both quilts are really lovely! You make scrap quilts look totally planned. They are very calm.

  3. I am always happy to see a post from you, Elaine. The purple and blue QLC is really lovely. I agree with Vicki that you make scrap quilts look like a well thought out design.
    Loving that plaid quilt, too. No shirts were harmed? You must have made a lot of plaid shirts over the years to have all those scraps. And I say if the quilt isn't stiff, it wasn't too much quilting--and a couple of washings help soften things up. It looks really good to me.


I no longer will accept Anonymous comments. I hope my adjustments to Comments do not cause anyone hardships.
