24 blocks done

I finished sewing the blocks last night. I am stopping at 24 blocks because with a small border it will be perfect for the twin bed in my guest bedroom. I still need to rearrange the blocks because it is heavy with blue in some areas and heavy with red in others. My main objective is to not have 2 of the same flower next to each other.The cutting took 2 days and the sewing 4 days, but not all day every day. I rarely get in more than 4 hours quilting time in a day and sometimes only 2 hours.
*******************
The private lesson went well yesterday. The lady who owns the store and I are trading off teaching him, whichever one is free on a day he can come. He switched to a rotary cutter from scissors and he was pleased with the speedier cutting time.

Your work is always artistic.

Your joy in your students success is evident.

I've been watching this quilt progress and I love how vibrant it is. This setting just makes it seem to radiate.

I believe it would look better in my den than on your bed. Really.

Cheryl Arkison said...

Wow! Such a different impression when you look at it on the large scale compared to the small. All the Kaffe's give it such a modern look.

This is the nicest log cabin I've seen in a long while. Hurray!!

Kathy said...

Your log cabin quilt has the exact same effect as 2 quilts I once made back in my college days. I have a paper strip quilt that it framed and a large queen sized log cabin made in 1970's & 80's calicos. The look is freekishly similar to all your Kaffe Fasset fabrics!

I know I have said this before and I will no doubt continue to use "BREATH TAKING" in describing your work. I TOTALLY agree with Gene Black's comment today.

This is stunning. It is a fabulously happy and colourful quilt!

I love your 'happy quilt'! I don't know how you get so much done is such a short time! And it is all so lovely!

I have had a stack of similar fat quarters and just haven't known what to do with them...they are so different for me. I have really enjoyed your journey on this quilt and it makes me more hopeful I can make something pretty with all of them...some Kaffee fabrics strike me as so ugly individually...it really makes me think a little differently about "ugly" fabrics.

Hi Wanda,
Your quilt is so fresh and summery (or gardeny, if there is such a word).
It's amazing you chose different fabrics than those in the book, yet you have the "look".
Love those big flowers as the center of the block.

Fantastic!

Wanda said...

I just love that "3D" look you have in so many of your quilts. And I hope it is "play time"...that's what I call your pictures of different arrangements! I just love them! It's so fascinating to see what blocks put in different positions can look like!!!

What a gorgeous quilt!

Oh, Wanda, I love it. The flowers do it.
