Log Cabins Under the Needle
Well, I haven't given up on quilting even though none have made an appearance for quite some time. Actually, I have been making lots of quilt tops and setting them aside to quilt later.
In addition to that I made 137 face masks for distribution. We kept a few for ourselves and gave out some to friends and neighbors. I still had 108 to donate to the local hospital for staff to wear when not at work. they were delighted to get them.
When that was done I pulled out the last of the projects I was asked to do the quilting on from my late sister's materials. She had pieced a simple wall hanging, a top for a throw pillow and a large bed topper - all of them 100% flannel.
She had left behind a rough sketch of ideas on quilting the pillow and bed topper which I incorporated into the free-motion work I did on the longarm machine.
I didn't get any photos of the wall hanging as it was simple half-square triangles from the leftovers of the quilt.
Here is the bed topper:
The bottom is the closest to true colors. Here is one of the cabins close up:
Cornerstones each for an oak leaf:
The doors all have woodgrain:
Windows have a frame and sashing:
Each chimney has scrolled smoke coming out:
Vertical sashing features vines and leaves:
And every cabin sits on a stone foundation:
The throw pillow is a single cabin with the same red sashing (quilted the same way) all around. The pillow measured 22 inches, so you can see the scale of this bed topper.
The flannel was not as linty as I expected so I had few challenges in quilting these pieces.
