Noah and Matilda - My Version from Log Cabin Quilter

A completed quilt top.  "Noah and Matilda" is approx. 79" square.  I stitched 36 of the 42 patterns and came up with my own setting.  The background fabric has arrived and all will be heading to the local quilt shop for machine quilting.  I don't have anyone to hold it up for a photo so a floor view is best that I can do.

Most of my fabrics are from a variety of Kansas Troubles lines.  My stash of that brand of is pretty much depleted now.

You can see Dawn Ronnigen's pattern here and compare the difference ...

Dearest Boy, Noah and Matilda And More from Log Cabin Quilter

A short month so the last day rolled around a bit quicker.  I put off until Wednesday morning preparing the "Dearest Boy" block for stitching.  A variation of a Crossed Canoes block.

I completed my second quilt top from the "Noah and Matilda" pattern set by Dawn Ronningen and her daughter.  I have linked you to a picture of the pattern cover so you can compare what the antique quilt design looks like.  This time, I did nine blocks using mostly Di Ford fabrics.  I doubled the size of the block patterns from eight inches to sixteen inches.  The top ...

A Perfect Garden and More from Log Cabin Quilter

I finished the last two blocks for "A Perfect Garden".

The Pomegranate block.  Not hard at all.

The Grapes.  Yikes!  The most complicated block of the nine.  There are no layout sheets for the blocks so I created my own.  The blocks are twenty inches square.  I used freezer paper for drawing the layout.  Freezer paper is eighteen inches wide so I had to tape on some extra to get the correct width.  I played and played with drawing lines for the trellis.  I finally got it to the shape I thought looked like the picture.  Then the curly stems ...

By now if you follow me you know I am really an emotional quilter/crafter. I attach to certain things I choose and often it comes from a somewhere deep inside that usually circles back to my mom.
