I also commented on the quilt I had made Craig. Well, Becca sent me a picture of the quilt.
She said the lump in the quilt was one of the cats. Too funny. The name of the quilt is Autumn Ridge. It is a Log Cabin Block which are not that hard to make. But by the time I finished this quilt, I felt like pulling my hair out.
It was probably one of the first 5 quilts I made when I started quilting again about 4 years ago. I was new to using rotary cutters. (Can you believe that I actually cut the pieces for the first few quilts I made, many years ago, tracing templates and using scissors.) I did not keep track of how many pieces I had cut out. I had to purchase extra fabric because I wanted it bigger to fit his super single waterbed. So that meant cutting extra blocks out at the end. I was never so tired of cutting those strips. I was scrounging around for fabric because I didn't want to purchase anymore. All that makes for an aggravated quilter.
I told Craig that his quilt was a pain and that I wouldn't ever make a Log Cabin again. But after seeing this quilt of CJ's, I know I will. I just love the way she used the pieced blocks with the embroidered blocks. And then, I realy need a quilt for the wall in our den. And it is going to be a woodsy room. So a quilt like Craig's would go great in that room.
Oh, so many ideas. So little time.
Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting.
