Phew! King Sized Log Cabin Finished!

It took me forever (well, almost!), but I finally finished quilting my king-sized log cabin:

A closeup of the center motif. I quilted ferny feathers in the pink/orange/yellow and a medium meander in the black:


The quilting really pops on the back:


I used Hobbs Tuscany silk batting in this quilt. First time I've tried it, and it is wonderful. Lightweight yet with a little loft. Very easy to quilt.

Thank goodness it's finished. Well, except for the binding....

Very extraordinarily beautiful, Heather. Hobbs silk batting . . . I have never heard of that. Will need to try that.

What a major accomplishment. Congrats! Major Congrats!!!

Thank you, Fannie and Jacq! I am so glad to have it finished. I took it with me to Cape Cod last week and finished the binding. It's ready for the TVQG show!

Hurray!

Amazing! Quite a piece of art, I must say.
