Log Cabin quilts!
Hey, some people have mentioned that I seem to get a lot done...thank you for that. There are lots of more prolific quilters out there than I am for sure, so I appreciate it, but...the thing is, is that I don't sleep! Insomnia makes for great cutting out and quiet sewing time. I don't recommend it, however!! You know, I don't see this piecing frenzy happening forever for me, so right now, I am trying to sew up every last little bit of fabric I own. Waste not, want not, right? Frugality comes from my parents...depression children. I bet some of you know just what I mean!!
Something really cool happened this week...I was contacted by a representative of Fons and Porter to review their log cabin online book! I am so excited about this...I love Fons and Porter quilts, and have made several of them, bought each magazine and just generally enjoyed their work. The book is wonderful...several great ideas for log cabin quilts, and of course this was great timing, as I am making log cabins as you can see! The best tip for me from this book was their binding tutorial, for a no lump binding!! Loved this, and I am using it!! Guess what? You can see this book for free too!! Please click HERE to see it...maybe you will be inspired to use up some of your little string pieces.
Have a great day!!!
