Finished Log Cabin Quilt!

I did finish this log cabin quilt. It seems to have taken forever, but I'm pleased with it.

I have rather ambitiously undertaken to make a lot of quilts for Christmas presents this year and time will tell if I actually get them all made. ;)

I used a knit t-shirt type of material for the backing.
I think the print of it goes well with the ones on the front.
And I like the binding. I used jelly roll strips.
I'm taking a little trip this fall and wanted a case to protect my camera. I've been working on another quilt and had one of these blocks left over, so I folded it around some closely woven batting,
and added a velcro closing.
Yea! An easy project that went together in about an hour!

I chanced upon this book on our local library's search page, so I had to order it. :) So many interesting possibilities. I plan to have a closer look at it tonight.

I think you really have to be an optimist to be a gardener. So many times things just don't turn out as well as you had hoped, but then there are the times when it does and even more abundantly. Those are the times that make it all worth while.

Have a great evening!
