I love this pattern, and would definitely do it again. It worked up nicely. I did attempt my first time at machine quilting. I'd say it was successful, but with many flaws. I think with a little more practice, I could do it better. I did a few doll quilts this week to practice my quilting on before I did this quilt, and the doll quilts looked much nicer. I found it hard to manoeuvre the larger quilt, and got quite a few "beaks" in my quilting. I also encountered some bobbin issues for a small part of it.
The pattern was called "Star Log Cabin". Love it!! I just HAD to do the stars in yellow, to make them pop. I was going for a light and airy feel on the colours... I'm always drawn to greens and blues, and thought it would be the perfect combo for this quilt. I like how it turned out. It's a lap size quilt (baby size).
I backed it with a blue polka dot flannel:
Here is a better view of my mediocre.... poor quilting job:
I've decided to keep the quilt. I toyed with giving it away, or selling it, but I think due to the flaws, I would rather keep it for my own kids. I would say that it was for the baby, but Paisley has already tried to stake a claim on it. So I think it will be a shared household quilt.
Once I put binding on the doll quilts, I'll post those.... but that may be a while... have so many things on my to do list.
