Frosty Morning Log Cabin Quilt


My mother finished quilting and binding this log cabin quilt for me, as usual (I do the piecing and turn it over to her). I absolutely adore her design choices. 


She picked up on my quilt title ("Frosty Morning") and bound the edges in a surprising French blue printed with snowflakes, and it's just perfect! And here and there she ran a line of embroidery in blue, rather than the expected yellows and pinks.


She has a such an eye for color, I wish you could see her house! Quilt is in the shop.

That quilt is really beautiful! I especially love the idea of adding a blue accent thread and binding - what a creative idea.

I know that I for one would love a photo tour of her house someday! Perhaps? ;)

Yes, Anna - you shouldn't have mentioned it; now everyone is going to try and imagine what her home looks like. :)
