There will be a quilt

Hi! Thought I’d drop in this morning and share my current quilt in progress, a FUN and bold improv log cabin I’ve worked on here and there for a couple months.

Tsuru is the most prominent collection, I guess, but it also has some Washi Tape, Bella and Glimma by Lotta Jansdotter, Kaufman yarn-dyed Essex, some Art Gallery solids, and Kona Snow.

A peek at the quilting lines…

And SEAMS! I love looking at the backs of quilt tops. I usually pin-baste my quilts, but used both spray and pins this time since I was working with slippery ol’ minky backing.

So that’s my current squeeze, which I’m binding and washing and photographing and gifting to a wonderful friend and her new son. Finished quilt post to follow very soon! Yeah!

Lastly, in an effort to spice up this post, allow me to wow you with dog glamour shots.

    Love the color combo of your log cabins. What a fun quilt! And love that you have a dog named Zeppelin! What do you use to mark your quilting lines? Mark-B-Gone?

    The quilt looks amazing.
    Zep doing? I think about you quite often. What a beautiful dog he is. He is melting my heart for sure.
