Oh my goodness, friends! I had an appointment on Friday so I was off work, and I took that opportunity to pick up my sewing machine. My dealer is about 30 minutes away, and they close before I can make it after school, so I was grateful for the chance to get there on a day other than Saturday. I was without it for two looooong weeks, and I know I will waste no time getting a backup for the future. I have learned my lesson the hard way. I just love sewing too much!
I finished up one quilt this weekend and although I have a tutorial all planned for later in the week, I'll go ahead and give you a little peek-
And after that one was finished, last night, I worked on this one-
These are mostly Lottie Da fabrics by Heather Bailey, with a few others thrown in. The shop that sells my quilts got this fabric line in a few weeks ago and asked if I would make a baby quilt that would really show it off. They also asked if it would be possible to make the quilt with only fabrics they stock, which eliminated solids.
They also happened to ask for this quilt right after I took my machine in, which means it's been sitting on my to-do list for a couple of weeks already. The Giant Log Cabin has kind of become my go-to pattern for a quick, easy quilt that can really show off beautiful fabrics. Since the strips are four inches wide finished, even large patterns stay relatively intact. Oddly enough, even though I've made three quilts in this pattern (because they are really fun to sew), none of them are at the shop, so I figured, why not?
I'm planning to get this one basted and finished up to deliver Saturday (hopefully), and I hope they love it!
