Louise...

Since I´m not sewing or do anything crafty at all...
I can show you what my talented friend Louise is up to...

This is her January finish...
isn´t it lovely... :)
The log cabin blocks will always look nice together whatever fabrics you use...
and this version with blue/purple and cream/white fabrics is so nice...
..... Mmmmm ...it would look great in pink feedsack don´t you think... ;)
I need to make myself a log cabin quilt!!!
Someday... :)

This is a quilt she made this summer...correct me if Im wrong here Louise...
It is made from a Jelly Roll and a Charm Pack...
Love the "springish" colours in this one...
handquilted with fans all over...
a little beauty!!

Hope Louise will provide me with some more finishes during the months from now on...so I have something to show you... :)

Today I have been a really good girl...
taking it really slow and have been really careful.. I watched the video on How to Machine Applique... got some Aha ...moments... and I will definetly try this technique out some day!!!
Take care out there in the big big world...

  11. Louise has very lovely quilts. I am partial to log cabin myself. Catching up on reading and watching videos isn't all bad since you have to behave. There is so much out on the internet. Before long you'll be back at it.
