Completion

This post has been a long while in the making and is considerably overdue. Today I picked up my Log Cabin quilt from the quilter. I still have to take it home and bind it this weekend, but I have it back.
This quilt is only the second quilt I have ever made...for myself. The first was only recently, as well, and was a t-shirt quilt made of all my beloved Alpha Phi Omega shirts from college. The Log Cabin is the quilt I have always wanted to see on my rustic bed in my little country school house and I went to great pains to make sure it was exactly what I wanted it to be. I can't wait to get it home and put the blue binding on it this weekend so it can be on display for the holidays.(a view of the borders from the reverse)(two of the three borders from the front)(detail on the blocks)(center shot, showing the "Barn Raising" pattern)

It's beautiful Beth! I'm impressed that you can cook and quilt - good for you! I have missed seeing your food posts, but it sounds like you have been productive quilting! Thanks for the comment about the mustard-caper sauce. I bought that butter at the Fresh Market. I don't know if you have one near you, but if it is anywhere closeby then it's worth a trip. Take a cooler! I think the butter was about $5, but so worth it. Have a really great Thanksgiving! Display the quilt loud and proud!!

Awesome! You haven't posted about quilts in a while. I'm considering getting into long arm quilting, just joined a guild last weekend, so I fully appreciate the work done both on the quilt top and on the quilting! Beautiful!
