One to Keep and Three for Project Linus!

This is a Log Cabin that I made using the Marti Michell ruler and Log Cabin book--it sure made it easy to do---I love that ruler (no affliation just happy customer, yada yada...)----it made cutting the "logs" so much easier! This one is a "Keeper" and hangs in my living room---had to take down another quilt, but "turn-around" is a good thing--right!?!?!!!!

The next three are Project Linus quilts. The first one is "Kitty Cats". It's done in a pattern called "Cornerposts". I got it out of an old Quiltmakers magazine.
The second one is called "Deep Purple" and is a Yellow Brick Road. These fabrics are from Japan and are called "Dawaibo." They were very nice to work with and have almost a silk look to them, but will wash up very nicely!

The third one is called "My John Deere" and is the pattern called "Speedy Baby 2", a pattern that I got off the internet---it certainly was speedy because it used charm squares that were already cut---I used some that were left over from the Baby Genius quilt that I made for my Grandson a couple of years ago.

I have 3 more PL quilts to quilt and again I will be caught up with the quilting. But I plan to make more tops this week-end and so I will be behind again!!!!! And so it goes!!!! But it sure is fun to see that stack of quilts grow!

Let quilting help you make someone smile!

Jan those are wonderful! Yes, rotate your quilts. I get tired of seeing the same ones all the time, so I put some away and when I pull them out again it's almost shocking how much I like them again.
LOVE the log cabin!
