Description

Blocks contributed by friends from Threadbias, Quilting for a Cause (flickr), and myself.

I plan on basting and quilting it soon. I'm hoping to do some quilting on the machine and then some hand quilting around some of the squares in pearl cotton thread. Can't wait to ship this off!

6/3/13 - Finished quilting this one. Have made the binding, just need to hand stitch it down, give it a wash and then it's in the mail!

6/10/13 - DONE DONE DONE! Washed and on it's way to the post tomorrow!

6/11/13 - IN the MAIL!!!! My sister said she'll see if she minds a photo with it and if she minds if I share it. If she gets one, I'll be sure to let you all know! Thanks again for all the contributions!

Jess I've said it before and I'll say it again, you have a great eye for color. And what can I say about that amazing backing except I'm in awe. I have backing envy! Thanks for coordinating this worthy cause. Hope to see a picture of Lizzy with this wrapped around her.

WOW! I love the colors of this quilt. Great square design also. Good job everyone!

This is so beautiful- there is so much going on and yet it doesn't look overly busy- the design works- just wonderful!

Love the colors!!

Jennifleur

What a fun log cabin - love what you've done with it. It's so modern and bright.

Caribousmom

This is beautiful, Jess!

Joygross

Fabulous! I would love to do one of these.

True

Jess how is Lizzy (and her family) doing?

Jess

True - They are doing much better. Lizzy graduated from high school (or I guess will be this June) and her family has had some other celebrations recently including her brother's wedding. So things are looking better! I am planning to send this one to my family to give to her for her graduation since I can't make it back for basically anything.

Jess

Carolmarie - Yes! I had two that didn't fit on the front (since you all were so darn generous), so I used them on the back, but everyone's blocks made it in there!

True

Jess that is so excellent to hear! Cannot wait to see final pictures...and she will be thrilled I am betting:-)

Laweigel

Beautiful job Jess ! So fun to see the blocks I made in your great quilt :)

corginole

This is lovely and I'm sure will be cherished. I really like the use of different styles in the blocks to get the splashes of color.

True

This looks amazing...how wonderful that you did this for her!

Sewzalot

I love-love-love this quilt!!

Terryt1955

I'm so glad Lizzy will be able to wrap herself up in this beautiful quilt!

Jenniffier

Great quilt Jess. Love Fleury's photo bombing.

Chandra

Beautiful quilt Jess, and I love the converging corners block...and I especially love the back. I tend to spend more time piecing my backs than I think I should but yours reminds me of how nice it is to do the extra abstract/improv work on the back! I love the letters too!

corginole

Love the words on the back! Congrats on the finish.

HawkFan

This is beautiful and how nice you did some hand quilting. I'm not brave enough to tackle that any time soon.

True

Love new pics and your puppy sure has grown!!

This is so heartwarming. Not only is it a beautiful quilt she will love, but the collaboration that was involved was wonderful. To all of those that participated in the completed project...You did a beautiful job!

Just lovely in every way... I love the back as much as the front! What a great project.
