Friday Finish

Last fall I pieced a scrappy log cabin quilt using a pattern by Edyta Sitar from her book Scrappy Fireworks Quilts. Here are posts about the piecing the flimsy.

A close up of the front of the quilt so you can see some of the quilting.


For now the quilt is residing on the old twin sized bed upstairs. It looks wonderful!

The backing is a light beige whole cloth fabric. The quilting designs shows nicely on the fabric.


Lori Null quilted the flimsy for me and did an excellent job. 

This log cabin quilt measures 79" by 91". The original pattern made a square quilt. I added additional rows on the top and bottom of the quilt to make it rectangular.
