Thanks to my super awesome boyfriend for taking super awesome pictures for me!




I have triumphantly conquered my entirely hand pieced, quilted and bound log cabin quilt.  It's 8 foot square, and it dwarfs both me, my wooden fire escape, and my full size bed  Shocked.  I'm a little scared it's going to come out of its hiding place at night and smother me.


Luckily, it's going to the owners of a much larger bed . . . the dedication is embroidered on a corner.


The last photo shows how beautifully the light comes through the backing.  Info on its construction can be found here:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=295822.msg3366950#msg3366950

It's beautiful!!!!  Shocked  I love how you arranged and colored the log cabin blocks to make a larger pattern. How long did it take you? I can't imagine ever doing so much hand anything!

um, you're crazy.

I love how the log cabin pattern makes an even bigger pattern b/c of the way you arranged the fabrics!

Sooo how long DID this take you?

Stunning.
Absolutely stunning.

I'm assuming its a wedding present, and this is going to be the best present they'll get. And it will be treasured for lifetimes.

I am totally selfish.  There is NO WAY I could spend my time sewing 96,852 stitches on something and then give it way!!!

Wow.  Just, wow. 

I also don't think I could ever give something so spectacular away.  Your recipients are some lucky ducks! 

Beautiful job.
