The quilt is a log cabin and it was round. Just what was I going to do with it. It was pretty and I wanted it and I just couldn't bear cutting it. So it has sat on my shelf for about two years. Wow, did that time go by fast.
I was in my laundry room and there on the shelf where I keep my unfinished projects was the quilt. It spoke to me. I pulled it out and took it upstairs. Putting all my other projects aside I began to work on it. (Yes, that is how I end up with unfinished projects- but they do in fact, get done). I cut it down to a square. It now seemed right to cut it. It was four blocks by four blocks after cutting off the roundedness so it needed some borders. I placed the borders on and had corners of log cabins. Funny, I had gone to a stash sale last year and picked up some older fabric. This fabric was dated 1989 I believe so it totally worked with the fabric Shirley used.
I did it all very quickly. I still had to finish it with a binding but I had to show my friend because I was just too excited to share it with her.
I am calling it Sweet Blue. I will leave it up to her what she wants to put on the label. I am done with it. It was meant to be, I feel- just exactly like it happened.
You can go see it at my friends Sandy's blog as well- Quilting For The Rest Of Us.
