A Tabby Log Cabin Quilt for Giles


I made a medium-size log cabin quilt for Giles out of linen and cotton from the scrap bins.


And wool--that dark center square is wool suiting.


It's backed with a neutral silk that came from my upholsterer friend. I never thought I'd find a use for it. You never know!


And I never realized that I had worked out a tabby-colored scheme. But Fitzwilliam knew.

Anna: Your quilt is beautiful and is set off perfectly by the silk backing! (in MD)

I've got a furry white person next to me doing the same kind of wriggling around - love the quilt!

How do you have time to get all these things made? And hand quilted! Lovely, lovely.

Whatever happened to Lucy? :( (Not that I don't love Fitzwilliam...)

It's lovely.

I may have asked before: are you stitching with embroidery floss? perle cotton? It looks larger than just thread.

I'm just today working on a project where I want to quilt with perle cotton. I'm guessing I can't use the same rocking hand motion that I do with quilting. . .

Your quilts are so lovely... and inspiring. I have finally worked up the courage to make my first quilt. I hope it comes out as sweet as yours do. Fitzwilliam is so cute.

Margo, it's three strands of six-strand embroidery floss.

Frederick post coming soon!

I love that you used all those fibers in this quilt. It's just wonderful!
