This quickly became one of my favorite quilts.

I cheated a bit on the borders. Shhh. I do love everything about this quilt.

{ Manly Log Cabin -is there any other kind? }

This was supposed to be a Christmas gift for my husband. 
Yeah, right.
As soon as the final stitch was in the binding, it was in the wash and dryer. 
While it was still warm, I presented him with an early Christmas gift. 
He seemed very pleased, which makes me happy.

Fabric: Miniature Gatherings by Primitive Gatherings for Moda
Batting: Warm and White 100% Cotton
Backing: Robert Kaufman Flannel
Quilting by Melissa @ Sew Shabby Quilting
Used the Log Cabin Trim Tool to make perfect  8 1/2" blocks

I may be using flannel backings more often. It really makes for a cozy quilt.
I just have to add the label and I'll 100% complete.

{ I Have Quilter's ADD }

I'm really wondering if this condition exists.
Just a two days ago I picked fabric for my next quilt project, 
Sweet Marie by Woodberry Way.
I put a photo up on Instagram showing the pretty 
Vintage Picnic fabric and the pattern.
I even went so far as to iron all my fat quarters in preparation for 
cutting on my next free evening.

Then by last night ,I decided this is a very springy collection of fabrics and since the winter is coming I need to make a winter quilt.

Oh look! I have the perfect alternative. Snowman Gatherings II by Primitive Gatherings.

As of now, this is my next project. I'm going to get started right away so I don't change my mind again.

{ One Christmas Gift Complete }

I loved every moment of making this quilt. 
The pattern is well written and very easy to follow.

I chose to make the quilt with the same fabric Elizabeth Hartman used.
Why mess with perfect.

{ Three Years and the Blogger's Quilt Festival-Fall 2016 }

That's how long this UFO has been hanging around. It was all cut out but has spent the better part of three years in a project box. Why? I'm not sure. It may have had something to do with the 780 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" red squares that needed to be sewn on to 195 2 1/2" x 4 1/2" rectangles.

Actually, it had everything to do with that. 
The original post can be found HERE

{ A Recent Bigfoot Sighting }

I'm getting a start on Christmas sewing. The last two weeks I've been working on Legendary by  Elizabeth Hartman.
This pattern makes me smile.

{ Almost Forgot }

In between the other completed quilts I've made so far this year, I also finished this queen sized disappearing 9 patch for our guest bedroom. It was my first and possible my last quilt this size. 
It was rough basting it and quilting it on my home machine. 

Some of my quilting lines are a little wonky. Next time I'll be sure to mark the lines to be sure they're straight. I even ordered some extra fabric to make two throw pillows using the tutorial at Crazy Mom Quilts.

Disappearing 9 Patch
Fabric is Whitewashed Cottage
Size is 86 x 86
