Finally Finished...

Here it is...finally! I'm very pleased with how it turned out. My son should be home from school in an hour or so, he very kindly decided to come home today instead of Thursday, so I was able to get the binding on. I pieced the back too, out of two different fabrics that I found in my stash...so this quilt is entirely stash fabrics. I'm so proud! :o) Now to decide what project comes next...

Looking good! Makes me want to think about doing a male-ish log cabin now. :)

What do you mean, "Finally Finished..."?!!! First I heard about this quilt was all of 2 weeks ago and now I am looking at a photo of it completely done - incuding the binding! Lightning fast in my book! Looks wonderful - log cabins are one of my favorites! This one looks so homey and comfy.

Cheers!

Ohmygoodness Carolyn! Did you mean to say "FINELY Finished," perhaps? You made fast...and gorgeous...work of those strips!!!

And at how many miles per hour do you longarm, anyway??? ;-)

You know, your house just looks darling...I'm so glad you stayed!

It turned out great. I love how some of the lights are almost medium....

I tried to explain hyperlinks....

Wowsers! Love it! And it looks HUGE!!

Carolyn - it loves marvelous! I am so inspired by all these stash quilts. It sure is helping me free up that feeling that the fabrics have to be just perfect and match exactly - because if you do these scrappy quilts even what you think isn't perfect is when it is done! I love it!

You are fast, Carolyn! I love log cabin quilts and yours turned out great! Be sure and tell us your son's reactions when he saw it.
