1/4 Log Cabin quilt {a finish}

I spent a bit of time this week refocusing on my FAL Q3 list
Tally up time of 'finishes' for this last quarter is 30 September. 
So far - not surprisingly - I am a bit behind target, with only this one finish! 

Some of my quilt tops hang out together in the wardrobe for months while I work on something else, but not this one! I've just finished putting the binding on my 1/4 Log Cabin quilt, aka the Handkerchief quilt. I do love those vintage-looking handkerchief quilts, don't you? Here's my take on one...




The quilt is pretty busy with all the various AMH prints, so connecting circles was my choice of quilting pattern. Annette certainly worked her quilting magic here! It gives it a nice texture, sort of sinks into the piecing on the front, without competing with the fabrics. For more decision making details about this quilt, see this post here.

Yayee finish #1
A few weeks to go yet, maybe I've still got time to tick another WiP off "the list".
How is everyone else going with their FAL lists?


Linking up with Needle & Thread Thursday  here @ my quilt infatuation

    1. Thank you! Yes, I remember reading somewhere, a Gai Perry book I think, that aqua is a good colour to use to add 'spark' to most scrappy quilts. I think she may be right! L
