Wonky Log Cabin

I just have to share this great quilt I just finished quilting.  Heidi, the queen bee of a group of 12 quilters who are making blocks for each other started our group with these large, wonky log cabins.  She finished the top within a month or two of getting all of her blocks back.  Many of these gals are not quilters (yet) but all like the idea of quilting.  Some have been sewing clothes and household items for years.  We've gone through three months and I just love working with the fabrics the gals are picking.  (Anything new is a great joy to me!) 

Here is Heidi's quilt on my bed so that I can show it off.  
 I used a spiral groovy board.  Makes nearly perfect spirals one large, one small.  I now know that the table of my long arm is not flat.  It also doesn't have the same amount of space from the rails to table on the front of the machine.
 This close up shows off the quilting quite well.  
Is it a good thing or a bad thing that you can't see the quilting on the back very well?  

Thanks Heidi for letting me quilt this one.  I really enjoyed it! 

Happy Quilting All!

  2. I like that quilt a lot! The solids mixed with the prints makes it very modern.
