After quilting four quilts in a row, I thought for sure I would stop and piece another top. But no, I can’t help myself. I am on a roll! We just put our two year old in a “big girl bed” (twin) and I didn’t have a cute pink quilt the right size. So, I looked at my stack of unquilted tops (which is getting smaller and smaller) and I found two that would work out great. The first is yellow with little pink, white and green buttons. It was the first real quilt I pieced about eight years ago and never quilted. I know, sad. The second was this great Log Cabin quilt made from the “Darla” line. I threw it together when I was pregnant with my now adorable two year old. It was never finished because first, it’s me, and second, I had baby number five. I just couldn’t. So, it is fitting that I finally finish it for my cutie patootie’s bed. She loves it and has spent two entire nights in her own bed. Hallelujah!
I used the “Charming Log Cabin” quilt pattern, but it’s a bit different. I messed up when buying the fabric, and bought the wrong yardage for the wrong strip. So, I had to rearrange a bit. The top and bottom are supposed to be scalloped too, but I forgot to set aside my binding and used it for a skirt. Oops! Luckily, I had enough backing leftover to use as a straight cut binding instead of a bias cut. I’ll have to tackle scallops on a later project. Even with all that, my daughter loves it and I think it’s pretty cute too.
