Yes! What a great feeling to finish this Rebuilt Log Cabin. It's been a long time in the making. From what I can tell, I started it in December of 2011. Yep, it is an old UFO. You can see it progress in posts from 12/5/2011, 12/14/2011, 2/23/2015, 1/4/2019, 1/31/2019, 9/6/2020, 9/9/2020, 9/22/2020, 9/29/2020, and 9/30/2020. OH Good Grief! I think I went a little crazy. Many thanks goes to Elaine Adair who blogs at Elaine Adair Pieces, for posting a tutorial on the Rebuilt Log Cabin. Now on to the finished quilt! And another thanks goes to Nancy who blogs at Wyoming Breezes who noticed and told me about 1 block that was turned wrong. Jack and I ripped it out and replaced it correctly!It was a beautiful sunny day when Pat helped me take pictures of this quilt. Rain was coming but not until the next day.
The photo op was finished and Pat was tired of holding it up! I can't say I blame him -- it's a twin size quilt. I was worried because he had to stand on a little ladder to make sure the quilt was totally visible. Thank goodness he didn't fall off. Nice to see the butterfly bush and some day lilies in the picture.
Next up, (a couple of days later,) I took some pictures of the quilt on the twin bed it is going to be living on. My doll Kirsten just had to be in the picture.And how about a close up of the backing. You can really see the quilting well in the black part of the picture. And, if you ever wonder about "hiding" your quilting -- use a really busy backing fabric.

And a few odd ball things. I purchased the "ladies" print from my friend Nancy. She was having a sale to rehome fabrics, notions, patterns before her impending move. Pat and I drove up to Maryland to see what she had. I thought the fabric was cute but it didn't dawn on me to use it for this log cabin until several weeks after we got it home. Many years ago I bought a nice black and white stripe I had planned to use for the binding. Nope, didn't do it. The red binding worked much better.
Some time in the next week I'll finish doing my stashbusting statistics for June. This quilt busted some serious stash!
Here's my Friday linky parties. Midweek Makers, Needle and Thread Thursdays, Can I Get a Whoop, Whoop?, Finished or Not Fridays, and Beauties Pageant. Enjoy surfing -- quilters are creating all over the Internet.
Happy Quilting All! Bonnie
