We're almost through with the Amazing Quilt Babes stitch days this year. Today was Carolyn's day, and she used fabrics for this beauty ALL from her stash. Of course, it helped that she found the kit from a long time ago all ready put together. She spent the last week cutting all the logs to the right size, and kitting those individual blocks for us to sew today.
We were short a member today again (Vicky this time), but Carolyn had already made quite a few of the blocks before today, so that helped get as many on the board as we did. What appears to be the white of the design wall or sashing is actually the last two strips on the log cabin. The blocks are set on point, and with just the last two rounds the lightest color really makes them pop! The edges on the bottom are small log cabins with setting triangles on each corner. This quilt will be a giant at 110" square! Carolyn is on the back row, right side.
While we were all together, Carolyn's daughter stopped by to show us a quilt top she had made, and brought along her 6 month old daughter. She also wanted to share her Strip Club quilt top she had just finished, too. One of our LQS's started a Strip Club. Each month, you pick up your kit which includes the pattern and all the precut strips for $35.00 and make it up. It's big enough for a comfortable lap quilt, 49" X 61". I think this is not for me, but another nice idea to get folks into the shop.
Carolyn believes it's never too early to learn to quilt with Grandma, right?
