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.

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.
