Put a Little Love in Your Quilt Hop! It’s here!

heart image

It’s here, it’s here and I’m, well, running a little late (well, kind of early since my post is going live early but, well, it’s complicated.)  Without boring you with details, my weekend had work, a trip with my husband to the ER (don’t worry, he’s fine), more work and a bit of quilting marathon!  But, before I show you my project…check out the schedule…

February 5
I’m always honored to be in the lineup with these terrific quilters!  Thank you to Carol at Just Let Me Quilt for putting all this together!  So,  this year, when I thought about hearts I remembered a log cabin sampler class I designed and taught 22 years ago.  The center was still languishing in a drawer so I decided to finish it!  First off, I didn’t want another wall hanging and the center was 47×47 so I added borders, and a twisted ribbon border, and more borders and quilted it with an allover random assortment of loops and hearts. (I quilt on my regular Bernina…yes, even the big ones but that’s another story.)  So, here it is (not bound but so much closer to finished!)…
A special thank you to two very tall staff members at school who held this up for me!
I’m in the process of cleaning (gasp!) and sorting (double gasp!) my sewing room and I’m pretty sure I still have the instructions for the center medallion which includes a whole bunch of log cabin variations.  If there is an interest, I’d be happy to post them on the blog when I find them and/or maybe a log cabin heart quilt along?  Let me know in the comments and be sure to hop over to Just Let Me Quilt and enter for a sew cute fabric prize that’s up for grabs!
Happy quilting!

    This quilt is stunning. I actually let out a “wow” when I pulled up your page. Great job and who cares if it has no binding, I couldn’t even notice. Well done and this is way beyond what I expected for a heart project. Great idea and execution.

  32. Maryellen McAuliffe

    So sweet. I love the ribbon border, too. I need to add that to one of mine. Thanks for the inspiration.

  33. This is a great quilt with national color. I like that you turned the wall hanging size to something usable! I bet it feels good to have the top finished.

  34. Your quilt is beautiful, what is not to like of a quilt with a heart made with the log cabin block !

  35. Very pretty! Love the log cabins.

  36. Your quilt is beautiful!
