Quilting Work in Progress

I have three projects on the go at the moment - never let it be said that as a beginner quilter I am taking on too much. I am linking this post to the Freshly Pieced WIP Wednesday. The first are three scrappy log cabins at 12 1/2 inches as part of Ellison Lane Quilts Scrappy Stash QAL.
I have enjoyed creating these as they do not need as much precision cutting as other projects and I can mix and match fabrics as I go. I have chosen to repeat my fabrics a few times as I like the look of this and I have a small character in the centre of each block. I intend to make a rainbow coloured quilt for charity with this one. I am also going to try a quilt as you technique show on Maureen Cracknell's blog.
Row 4 of Bee in My Bonnet Row Along in Progress

Rows 1 to 3
The next project is a Row A Long by Bee in my Bonnet. I have completed three rows and am working on row 4, the instructions are super clear but require precise cutting and seams which I am still getting to grips with. I am improving with each row though.
The final project is a quilt for mum which she wants to be mainly duck egg blue. I don't think it would work so have found some bright pink and beige colours with a cream dotty background. But which pattern. I have both Elizabeth Hartman's books and am favouring the Small Plates pattern but after playing with logs I wonder about a skinney border between the square and log surround.


  1. I love those little apples! Very cute!

  2. I told you in the Flickr group, but I love how you've added some really skinny logs to your blocks. Nice job!

  3. These are gorgeous!I don't know how you find time to keep up with these!

  4. What a fab collection of quilty stuff.... Look forward to seeing them finished.

  5. These look great - love the log cabins with the little characters in the centres!

  6. Love the log cabins...great job.

  7. This certainly doesn't look like the work of a beginner Sally! Love all of the different designs.
