I've finally got a finish for myself. This quilt has been in the works for a very long time. There was a lot of cutting, see this post from 2010 and a lot of stitching to get it to this point, shown here
Where did the 4 years, 7 months, and how many days go? I have no idea why it took this long to get to this. I'm just very pleased that I now have a new quilt for my bed.
There are so many quilts stitched into this quilt. Sewing the binding down gave me time to reflect and reminisce about all the previous quilts that were the foundation of this Log Cabin. I've not kept a decent record of my quilts, but so many of these fabrics brought back memories of many quilts I have made and gifted out. That makes this one all the more special for me to keep for myself.
Feathers seemed to be the way to go for the quilting and I wanted to try this new to me version of feathers. I worked out the kinks, and I LOVE how it turned out. I just know this is going to be one of those quilts that I will use and love even more as time marches on.
I still cannot believe it was March of 2010 when this was a completed top.............. but the past blog posts don't lie.
Are you working on a blast from the past? If so, share it, you just might motivate someone to finish one of their own.
