After sewing my thirty-five log cabin blocks together, I was happy to discover that my finished Modern Crosses Quilt top measures 45″ x 57″ which I think is a reasonable size for a lap quilt. I made this quilt using a pattern from the wonderful book Modern Log Cabin Quilting but I made a few modifications which you can read about in my previous post.
I did play with a few alternative layout ideas
before deciding that I liked the staggered arrangement best with the colours fading from left to right.I’m still contemplating how to quilt this one but already have it basted and ready for when I decide…
This week, I also finished quilting my Colour Happy Quilt and have started hand stitching down the binding. I’m hoping to be able to show you the finished quilt very soon.
For Week 4 of the May is for Makers campaign, I decided to purchase a pattern that I can see myself making in the near future.
While on a road trip with my family earlier in the year, I stumbled unexpectedly on a quaint little gift/quilt shop in a small country town. I managed to pick up a bargain jelly roll from the Moda fabric collection Road 15 by Sweetwater.
