Twisted Log Cabin

This quilt is one of 2 that were made at quilting class the Senior center. It is called a Twisted Log Cabin. I used the Circle Lord Swirlz template on it and went very slowly to be sure to catch all those seams. I used Quilter's Dream Poly Blend and as requested by the piecer, 2 different shades of turquoise on the top and in the bobbin.

The Easter Bunny is coming.....

The Easter Bunny is coming.

My Mom told me so.

Would you like to know a secret?

I'll tell you one I know

He'll bring a basket filled with eggs.

And leave it in my garden.

And I will find it in the morning

if I look very hard.

This cutey is from one of my regular customers. It is a bit wonky as it has several types of fabrics, including homespun. I decided to try a fill that I learned on Machine Quilters Resource.

One of the quilters there, Rebecca Segura showed us this wonderful fill that she calls 3s and Es. It is so fun and curvy. Thank you Rebecca.

My life has changed in the last couple of years - some bumps, I retired from quilting, and then I moved to Texas. I'm anxious to see what new adventures await me in the next phase of my life.
