A Green, Green Log Cabin Quilt


If I called this one "Time to Mow," you'd get it, right? It's about the patch of Queen Anne's lace in the middle of that expanse of green . . . .


My scrap boxes have been inspiring me with a capital I these days! I can safely say that the box of green is emptier since I started this project.

Yes, I do get it.
And I simply love this new quilt - the greens are just so soothing!

When I saw it, before I read your name for it, I thought it was the middle of the U.S. from the air.

Lisa said...

Oh, so cool - my favorite color.

I agree - I can't stop composing little patchworks (although they don't deplete my bin the way a full quilt would). I just love the jumble and how it makes something different, taken all together.

I love the mowing theme on this one. I've dreamed of doing one based on the farmers' fields around here, and then quilting it in long rows.

I'm amazed at how productive you are at sewing! How long does it take you to make one of these quilts? Do you sew everyday?

My favorite quilt you've done so far. I think I thought that a couple of quilts back too. Happy Spring to you!

Kara said...

Beautiful! Could you do a log cabin quilt tutorial? I'd love that. :)

Anna said...

I think I could--although I'm sure they're everywhere already.

Anyone want to recommend one?

how fun...looks like spring!

I've been taking a square a month class with 2 friends. it has challenged my sewing skills every month, but I am amazed at the beauty of each new design. i am now doing 3 for each month...I planned on doing the one kit package, plus one of my own to sure up that I *owned* the pattern, plus now I am doing my oldest daughter's kit, as she got engaged and lost interest in quilting.

Hope to have a beautiful quilt in grays and crimson next year.

Is this going in the shop? :) Hint, Hint...

Jennifer said...

Love those greens~

Anna said...

Yes, Holly, after it gets quilted. I'm willing to take a pre-order though! E-mail me if you're interested.

This is beautiful. I love the colors. I wish you would share with us how you organize your scraps and fabric. Do you do it by colors? And when is something small enough to move from the fabric pile to the scrap bin?

Anna said...

Mrs. Mordecai, that's a good question! If something is smaller than a hand towel I generally put it in the scrap bin. Unless it's really special and in a tidy shape-then it might stay on the shelf. Oh, life is complicated, isn't it?

Holly said...

Dear Anna,

I got it and I love it! It has now taken residence on our black modern couch in the living room and adds a whimsical, (perfect) pop of color in the daytime and perfect snuggle-baby-girl-for-bedtime-stories at night. Thank you!
