Scrappy Cabins 1 is Finished

Last week I got this project quilted and bound.  Yes, I see the, uh, design decision, near the lower left corner.  I mean, I see it now.  I partially blame all of you, who looked at the top here and never mentioned the problem.  (I’ve made sure to get lots of eyes on the pink and black one currently on my wall!)  I’m not too upset.  It gives it some character.  Not all furrows are straight, after all.

As the commenters said, I like the green and the pops of purple.  I used a shiny purple thread, Art Studio Colors by Superior, to quilt three wavy lines vertically and horizontally on each block.  I had already stitched in the ditch with Bottom Line, which is mostly invisible, but gives it sufficient quilting.

I made this for donation and to lighten my string bins, and I think it will be loved.

  1. love the unique design feature! It’s a lovely quilt!

  2. I love a good scrappy log cabin. Looks pretty perfect to me. It was obviously a deliberate design choice. The tapestries woven in 15th century flanders always had a deliberate mistake because only God is perfect.

  3. LOL – I didn’t see it till you mentioned it. As you say, makes it unique. Thanks for linking to WIPs Be Gone. It reminded me to come over and see your eye candy. Hugs!

  4. I love it! Great job!

  5. Haha, your quilt is beautiful. Isn’t it strange that something like that is never seen until it is WAY too late to fix? But it makes it much more special, in my opinion. Love your colors and fabrics, great job.
