WIP Month :: Oh YEAH!!!

ITS DONE!!!! I cant even believe it. I started this quilt so long ago, in a different town, before I had my two beautiful girls and I may or may not have been married (as my last post explained I have no idea when I started it). This was the sewing project that I started when I decided to take up sewing again. Nick's aunt taught me how to make a log cabin block and I went from there. I quilted it on my mom's friend's long arm and finished it up with a mock binding.

Now this is one more big project off my WIP table, and Nick can finally have a quilt big enough to keep his feet warm in front of the fireplace! February has been a good month.


  1. Stopping by from SITS! Nice job! It took me 3 years to get my husband's quilt done. Did you do the quilting yourself? I find I like doing the design best and then send off the big ones to a friend who has a long-arm machine and does it professionally. I love to read too! I read both from my Kindle and actual books. There are advantages to both.

  2. Thanks so much Caren, yes I did the quilting myself. I used a family friend's long arm and it was my first attempt ever at machine quilting. I'm with you, I love the design process and piecing the tops but never get around to actually quilting them! Thanks for stopping by.


I love to hear from you! Please leave a comment and I will reply in the comments section unless you leave me an email address and ask me to reply that way.
