Ya'll is it Friday already!!!??? Wowee!I have been soaked up in projects here and have lost track of time for sure! lol
A couple weeks ago as I innocently was surfing Log Cabin Quilts on Pinterest... I came across a pattern that I absolutely decided was my quilt to make!! Do you ever find that happening to you?? lol!
So why this searching on Pinterest in the first place??? Well a fun couple of jelly rolls I picked up for cheap on a facebook selling page!!!! Yippee :)
Here I have opened 1 jellyroll and separated it...
I took this photo and...
So today I hope to start prepping my fabric and cutting some of these logs!
My goal is to have each log cabin black a mixture of the blacks... and a mixture of the neutrals with no repeats in the block itself... and no repeats in position in the quilt... so nice and scrappy :)
I am MEGA excited about this... my grandmother I called Gaga made me a log cabin traditional quilt when I was about 20 but it was lost in the house fire of 2008... so now I want to make this wall hanging version to hang proudly on my living room wall and commemorate it to her and my grandfather I called Papa! :)
Does this make more sense now why I am so excited and yet nervous to jump into this project??!! Do you ever get that way about a significant project in your life... quilting or not!
I also am participating in a 9 patch themed BOM my friend Wendy is running on her facebook page and via her blog Wehago Designs.... also on Instagram as #WDBOM2016 ;)
As I have been gathering and organizing my log cabin quilt to be & making 9 patch variations... I have also been diligently working on my hand quilting project!!!
Currently I am about to finish up the 1st Carpenter's Star block... these blocks are 28" square though!!!
Until then I will be linking this post with Sarah's Whoop Whoop Friday linky party... come and see the quilt she pieced and quilted and bound this week... >>> HERE!
Have a blessed start of your weekend and remember...
