Linen Log Cabin Quilt

Several of these lately: crib quilts pieced in a log cabin pattern, using various neutral colors of linen from thrifted clothes.


Inspired by the garment I used for the center squares--beautiful soft felted pink wool.


Wishing you a happy new year filled with making good things from nothing!

Happy new year to you and your family! I love following your blog and reading all of your creative ideas. Thanks for sharing with all of us.

That SO expresses my pleasure from crafting: making something from nothing. Using up what I have, not going out and buying a kit. Solving problems with a little creativity. So much more rewarding than throwing money at it. Thank you for your gifts of loveliness. Happy 2011!

Yes, that's what I am trying to do. Happy New Year!

Thank you, and happy new year to you! My goals this year involve having a baby (not so much a goal as an inevitability) and using up my stuff (fabric, yarn) without buying *anything* new! Inventiveness! And I always appreciate the inspiration you provide in that department.

Oh, my word! That is so gorgeous. I'm not usually a "quilt person," but the beauty of this linen is dreamy!!

My Dd and I now eye things in the thrift store and go, "Pleasant View would do something with that probably!" or "As hideous as that is, could Anna still figure out something to do with it?!"

Meanwhile, we have turned our hands to turning thrifted tea cups and saucers into pincushions to sell to raise funds for the little girl, Katya, that we are trying to adopt! And it's very satisfying. Your example has given us courage to branch out in our up-cycling etc. If you want to peek: http://bringingkatyahome11.blogspot.com/p/teacup-pincushions.html
