I don’t even want to delay the cascade of pictures of my new finished object. It’s too pretty to wait even a minute!
You guys! I did it! I finished my Green Gables Quilt!
I finished the last bit of binding last night and just couldn’t wait to get some photos. As always daylight savings makes it tough, but Joshua and I managed to sneak some pictures in the fading afternoon light.
This beautiful log cabin quilt is made up in all Liberty of London tana lawn and was a block of the month club from Duckadilly. I have to tell you, this club was the bees knees! So easy to sew, so easy to follow. I’d estimate that there are over 100 different fabrics in the quilt top – this was incredibly fun to sew up. I made the 6 month rainbow version, it’s 36 blocks and came out 57″ square.
I fussy cut all the center squares – they feature cute elephants, owls, bears, and even cats with sunglasses and pearls on.
The beautiful quilting was done by Tera of The Quilting Smith – we went with a lovely fancy feather pattern. I couldn’t help but go wild for the backing – that’s Liberty Adelajda A, one of my favorites. The binding was a long debate, with many audtions. I would up thinking a sweet teal/blue floral wouldn’t compete too much with the front and would tie in to the aqua stars on the back. I used Liberty Amelie Blue A and I think it’s pretty swell.
Those stars y’all – those stars.
I’ve always loved log cabin quilts and rainbow log cabins is just a match made in heaven. This one a couple of firsts – first full Liberty quilt AND first log cabin finish (I started 2 log cabin quilts a million years ago, we should talk about that sometime)!!
I almost wish I could make it again.
