Cabin Stairs

yeah-I suck at remembering Thursdays. But, hopefully tomorrow, or even later tonight I plan to post again...about the jewelry swap over at Beadativity. There is a LOT to tell about that one, let me tell you...It deserves its very own post.

Anyhoot-Todays It's-Friday-but-i'm-still-calling-it- Thursday From the Vault is a quilt. This was, I think the second quilt I made. I was a security guard, and it was the middle of summer, so I wasn't doing my homework and had PLENTY of time to do things and do my paperwork, make my rounds, etc...

I used hunter green, kelly green, pale pea green and what can only be described as duckweed. The pattern is a combination of log cabin and tumbling blocks, with a leftover kindof random border.

Being that this was the first complicated design I ever did, of course nothig really stayed square, but I am immensely proud of myself.

Anyway, I cut all my pieces in the shack and stitched them at home. Then my ginormous quilt top sat finished in a box for ages. One day, about 4 or 5 years later, my dearest darling mother decided to quilt it, which was super awesome of her. Now it lives on my bed, and is soft, and cozy, and wonderful, and a whole bunch of green :)

  1. I have quilted (and have several to show for it) but not one this hard to piece! Awesome work (and I know how hard it was)
