Getting ready

I finally picked up my quilt this morning 
I’ve already cut off the excess of the backing fabric and put that away for a 
Future project 

I Will trim this all up and add a binding once the weather cools off 
It’s too big to handle while it’s so warm 

I’m very happy with it. 
Can you see the detail of the professional quilting 
I’ve practices doing free motion quilting on a very small piece but I’d never attempt anything this big 
So it was money well spent 

Craft quarters is having a 25% off jelly rolls. Just for today 
So I grabbed a black and white themed one and some red fabric 
As I saw a log cabin in those colours and I really want to make one 

This is a pic from Pinterest 
Once the blocks are made you can arrange them in so many ways 
If your on Pinterest, and let me tell you if you are you will get lost for hours lol 
Check out black and white log cabin quilts 
Some very talented people out there 

So this is now in the craft room 
Waiting for the right day for me to start on 
You kinda have to be on a good pain day, with the right temperature 
To get able to work on something large 

I do also have a few yarn projects going so I really need to finish those off first 
I’ll try and be good and not start anything new until I clear the list a little bit 

Well that’s the aim anyway lol 


  1. I hope once I retire, I can have time to be more creative.
    Coffee is on and stay safe

    1. I’m sure you will find the time. Especially during winter when there isn’t much you want to do outside

  2. Professional quilting is so worth it. I can't wait to see your black white and red quilt. Life is too short to spend time on projects that don't make your heart sing. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!
    *whispers* I think I've found you thanks to google maps. Love, your friendly stalker!!!!

    1. Oh yeah now maybe we can meet up for coffee and compare projects

  3. Very nice quilt and the black, white,red will be a stunner.
    You're an all round crafter

    1. Yup jack of all trades master of none. That’s me lol
