Round and round the squares


slowly...........



I made these orange scrappy log cabin blocks earlier in the year as part of the rainbow scrap challenge on Angela's blog,  put them together into a quilt top and then put it away to finish for another day.   I thought it'd be good to finish recently as one of the charities that Knit4Charities is supporting was asking for blankets, rugs, or quilts to be given to their Young Parent's Program.  This seemed like a good use for this quilt, as they want quilts or blankets for floor play, or over a car seat, so I pinned it up and have been slowly quilting it.


It's very simple quilting, just straight lines following the logs, around and around.   It's a little bit boring, but also a little bit painful, as I hurt my back being a little too enthusiastic pulling weeds, and this makes it hard to sit for long periods.  So I've been quilting at least one square every day, and trying for two.  It needs to be in the mail on Friday, so I'll just keep going round and round until it's finished. Not much left to do now, two squares I think! And then the binding.

Here's the back....a cheery orange and grey I picked up at Spotlight on sale.


So back to it, time to get today's square done.  Till next time......

  2. The orange and blue is fantastic! I hurt my back recently too - it sure slows you down doesn't it!

    1. It's nice and bright isn't it? And has a few I Spy type fabrics here and there. I think it'll be good for "tummy time". Hope your back is better soon, it's such a nuisance, we're powering along one day then wham! out of action.

  3. Careful with your back... It's always a surprise when you can't sit comfortably, isn't it? The quilt is lovely, gorgeous fresh and juicy colour, and some young patient is going to love it. The back fabric is lovely too!

  4. I've taken my own advice with my back and really taken it easy, although I'm really want to get out and mow the grass before it turns into a jungle. I think of you and your back troubles whenever my back growls at me :) Thanks, glad you like the quilt, it's amazing what a few scraps can be turned into.
