Quilt as you Go Log Cabin

I haven’t done a blog post in a while as I’ve been doing most of my posts via Quilting in the Rain Facebook or more recently,  Instagram. It’s a nice way to share “in the moment” pictures. But I thought I’d do a post to share some lovely shots I got of this quilt.
If you’re in Washington, I’m teaching a class on this quilt in Ballard at the Quilting Loft on Feb 11th. I believe there’s two spots left if you want to get all crafty and creative with me on a Tuesday night 🙂  http://www.thequiltingloft.com/log-cabin-quilt-as-you-go.html
I quilted the blocks and assembled this quilt in 2 nights, thanks to my
speedy Quilt as you Go technique (book coming out this September!).
Notice the coffee cup? So very Seattle. I was up until 2 AM the other night finishing this thanks to good ‘ol caffeine. Nights seem to be the only time I can find to quilt lately. Coffee is how I make it work 😉

Here’s some up-close of the quilting and fabric. It’s all about the details.

I made this quilt using low volume colors. My other quilt I made using this same pattern I used red and whites. It looks completely different! I love how fabrics completely change a quilt.

🙂 This little munchkin turns TWO this Saturday. Wow. Time flies!

One last picture…

Here’s a little bit of Spring for this rainy, wintery day!
Thank you for stopping by!
Oh, and Happy Superbowl weekend! (Go Hawks! 😉

    I'm with Zenia – I can't wait for September – I love reading updates on your blog because I don't do Facebook or Instagram 😀

    Happy birthday to your munchkin on Saturday – mine turned 25 today and I still can't figure out how it happened, since he was YOUR munchkin's age only … last week, I think, lol! Yours is certainly enjoying your latest – and lovely! – quilt 🙂

    This is gorgeous! Looking forward to the book. I wish I lived in Washington so I could take the class! Those are such fun fabrics! Love your little one's slippers, how cute!

    I'm with you on the coffee and late nights! My little ones always want love and it makes quilting hard. Who can say no to cuddles with the little ones?

    But give yourself a pat on the back, the quilt is gorgeous! Successful late night, for sure.

    I love this quilt. Love the low volume look of it. Love it! At the Quilitng loft, eh? Might have to look into that.
