Quarter Square Log Cabin

Today was sunny and perfect weather for photographing my now finished Quarter Square Log Cabin. If you are interested  here is a link to the instructions:

This couch potato throw size finished at 64" by 64" and was quilted by me in simple loop-de-loops.

Happy quilting!

Fall Arrives

As the cooler fall weather has been arriving I've been breathing a sigh of relief! I was  able to capture a couple of photos of the flock of wild turkeys that stroll almost daily through my front yard.

These birds are very wary and shy and I  counted 14 of them.

Then coming home from the Senior Center, I saw three deer too  in the front yard. Sorry that the photo is so poor but  maybe you can make out their heads.

On the quilty front, I  was able to get up to Ellen Peters'  studio to quilt my quarter square throw quilt.

Simple loop-de-loops made this one quick to quilt.

Here is what the layout looks like.

At the Senior Center there were lots of pretty projects going on amongst the group. Here is Meb and her quilt.

So pretty!

Sarah was  working on her Civil War reproduction blocks.

Mary had this to show.

Happy quilting!

The Golden Gese

Yesterday and today were a welcome respite from the heat and humidity. Temps were in the mid 70's and I loved it! Monday and Tuesday the heat and humidity will come roaring back even though it is September.

Friday I went to the Golden Gese quilt shop and sewed with the gang there. Here is Maureen with her cute kitty quilt for her granddaughter.

Laurie has been making a very complex applique and pieced quilt top.

I've been making 36 quarter square log cabin blocks and I got them pressed and laid out on the big table.

There was one block that was sewed wrong in these pictures but I have since corrected it. I just love the optical illusion of the layout!

If you are wondering, the above picture shows the "wrong" block in the far upper right corner of the layout.

Stay cool and happy quilting!
