This little quilt is about 40" X 40" and uses quarter log cabin blocks, an idea I snagged from Cynthia Brunz of Quilting is more fun than housework.
After I asked for opinions on layout (here), and got the same answer from almost every respondent, I had to go with this one.
Because the setting has a medallion feel to it, I decided to focus on it and quilted a large grid pattern. Then to set off the grid, I quilted a square around it.
The original idea was to use up some of those blue scraps and practice some of my quilting motifs, so in the blocks around the medallion I quilted different motifs. I also used a bit of yardage from the stash for backing and pieces of leftover navy for the binding.
Because the weather is so unpredictable, I quickly went outside to snap pictures on my new orange Adirondack chair that Richard made a few weeks ago. Doesn't that orange just pop? Wait till you see the rest of the chairs! They look like a bed of huge flowers!
But that's a post for another time. This is a post about the quilt, so here are the stats...
