Thank you to everyone who left such nice comments on my Lemoyne Star post. I wish I could send all of you the little sewing kit but I only have one (for now!) and I did the random number generator thingy and it came up with number 16, which is the comment from Gayle from The Middle Sister blog. Congratulations Gayle and send me an email with your address.
I had so much fun that I ordered more boxes from Tupperware and when I get more needle keepers I am going to do this one again.
Today I want to share a log cabin quilt that I just got. It is actually polluting the air in my office and I cannot wait to get it home and send it for a swim in some Oxy Clean. Whew! Someone was a smoker. Despite the malodorous aspects, the shirting fabrics are wonderful and the reason I could not resist this quilt.
I am also impressed by the neat, even hand stitches that the quilter used in her foundation piecing method for this quilt. She hand stitched the logs to the foundation and then machine pieced the blocks together, BUT, then hand whip stitched the seams closed on the back with a tiny french seam. It’s hard to describe and also hard to photograph the muslin backing but I gave it a try above.
