Finish It Up Friday

I started this Log Cabin quilt over two years ago and I am SO happy to say it is finally done!  

The blocks finish at 4 inches. I think I drafted the block in EQ but I don’t really remember anymore. The quilt finished at 42 inches square. And it really is square but the wind made it look like it wasn’t in these pics. 

  

  

  

 And the back. 

  

  

I used Warm and White batting, Glide thread, and Superior Mono-Poly. I used a template for the circles in the red border. It has 72,224 quilting stitches in the top and has 848 pieces. I did a lot of ripping on this one. It is one of the few quilts that I didn’t love working on. But now it’s done and I like it. It will soon hang in my hall.

    WOW! This is a beauty. I love everything about this one, especially the quilting. Now I will have to put a log cabin on my bucket list, although maybe not such a tiny block.

  2. This quilt is definitely a keeper!! I love log cabin, always will, and your layout is great. The border is perfect for it too. Makes me want to go start another log cabin.
