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 ...
