Scrap Attack #1--Log Cabin Ready to Be Quilted

My Giveaway is still open until the end of the week! There is a Kathy and a Susan from Troutdale that are no-reply commentors making it impossible for me to contact them should they win! Fall has definitely arrived around here. My oldest son has been sleeping outside in our camp trailer and it's starting to get cold enough that he's decided to move back inside until he leaves again (3 weeks!). I finally pulled out the log cabin quilt I want to get finished up for him to take back to college.
Scrap Attack #1--Log Cabin
When I mentioned that I had it pinned and ready to machine quilt I couldn't believe how excited he was. 'You never told me!' he says. Men. We had this conversation at least 2 months ago.
Love all the different fabrics used throughout.
So now I'm committed, which is fine. I intend to do very basic straight line quilting anyway, nothing fancy. I'm sure it will get very well used making hand quilting an unnecessary evil. lol  The quilt is 70" x 84" so I'm hoping it will work well on his twin bed and still be wide enough to wrap up in. Quilts that are too narrow and scrawny never seem to get used, do they?
Probably not pinned close enough.....
For anyone that is interested, I get my rolls of batting from Heartbeat Quilting in Spokane, Washington. I order on the net and get my batting shipped through the post office. They have quick, wonderful service and no I don't have any affiliation with them whatsoever!

  6. Perfect man's quilt. There's a still a lot to do with a 3 week deadline, though!

    It's funny that you mention how small quilts don't get used, when just today I have been deciding between a small or a large version of a design I have in mind. I was leaning towards the large one anyway, but it is nice to have some reinforcement!

  10. I totally get his excitement, the top is really cool with the half log cabin blocks in very masculene colours! Did you clean out your scrap boxed with this, or not even make a dent?..

  11. What a great quilt for your son! Isn't it great he's so enthusiastic about it. I love how there's lots of chopped log cabins except for the one full one in the middle.
