2010's First Top


It is unusual for me to settle on a quilt plan so quickly, but when i got the idea for this modified log cabin i decided not to over think it and just go with it!! Overall i think i am happy with it. Thanks Angela for helping me with my squaring up issues. They are likely a little off, but it is hard to tell.
Also, thank you ladies for all your wonderful tips and advice about mixing these fabrics when i blogged about them the other day. I think i am pretty pleased with how it turned out. What do you think?
My helper acquired a helper while holding the quilt for me. Sorry about the weird light in all the pictures. Even a nice camera can not save you from a dark house with bad lighting.
I am going ahead and posting this over at Amylouwho's for this weeks sew and tell. Go and check out what all the other ladies have made this week. I have been checking through the day and there is a lot of great stuff.

So cute, love those babushka gals. Your squares look fine to me, I think we can stress too much about that stuff. I love the pink and purple fabric you used to frame the babushkas.

Russian stacking dolls have always had a warm spot in my heart. This looks like a very happy quilt, even in a dark house with bad lighting :o)

Great job! They certainly do look square (but you totally NEED a square ruler, you would love having one).

I think we're all stuck in bad lighting these days - that cherry quilt helps clear out some of the gloom!

Suzanne said...

I looks really good! I can't believe you got that made already!

Becca P. said...

Your quilt looks lovely. Sometimes some quilts can't wait and you just have to make them pronto.

Leslie, you are so talented. What an amazing job!

Is Chris real or just a stand with hands and feet to hold up your quilts?

Kimberly said...

Man, that was quick. I love those nesting dolls! Nice job.

That came together really well, thanks for sharing.
