Happy Friday….. Happy Finish!!!

Happy Friday everyone!  Friday is a fabulous day and even more exciting when you have a finish.  I am so delighted to have completed my hand quilting for my beautiful Sister’s quilt!  I took a few pics quickly before it was packed into the suitcase to be delivered .  Unfortunately too early in the morning for a good outside photo.  When I started the quilt I posted about it here!   I chose an autumn colour pallette  to fit in with her décor. The large scale log cabin pattern showcases the fabrics beautifully!

Log Cabin 0.1

The pattern and fabrics are from Amitie Textiles and consist of Yuwa, Liberty Tana Lawn, Linen, Wool.  The block finishes 15″.   I wanted to make it a bit bigger so added some borders to frame it!  A light blue 1″ stripe fabric followed by the beautiful Orange Yuwa circle fabric. The quilt finished 60″ x 74″.   I chose to hand quilt the log cabins with orange perle 8 cotton following the square and rectangular shapes and then proceeded to use a circular pattern for the outer border!

Log Cabin Backing 1

For the backing I chose a Kei Geo Style  fabric that fitted well with the large scale prints on the quilt top!  I hope she loves this quilt as much as I loved making it for her!
