This is what I have been working on recently. That 20 year old log cabin quilt. What I started years ago is turning out pretty well, I think. Even though my seam allowance are not all a quarter inch, the fabrics are different kinds and some have stretched so the lines in the fabric look wavy, there is no rhyme or reason to the colors in this quilt, and I have used some questionable threads (hope it doesn't fall apart) It is going to be a very scrappy quilt indeed.
Take a look at some of my progress:
|A pile of pink strips being sewn together to make one long strip.|
|So there is the diagonal line again. Just going to cut that corner off so there is a quarter inch seam allowance.|
|Fold it over and press it for a nice even seam. Well the edges are a little off. I'm getting better though.|
|All pressed and ready to sew on to the quilt blocks. |
Time for a break:
|Stacks of blocks. I put them in zip lock back by size.|
|And this mess is what is left over. Into the trash bin it went.|
An interesting find:
More on the 20 year project next time. Thanks for stopping by.
