Log Cabin

I ran out of thread for this quilt. I had to order more and this delayed finishing it.

I also discovered near the end that I didn’t have enough backing fabric. So I consulted You Tube and found a method to add backing fabric with the quilt still on the frame. I stitched a line for sewing. I Pinned the pinned the additional back on the bottom of the quilt back and then I sewed it on. I trimmed the seam allowance, pinned the back and then repositioned the batting and the top.

Here is the finished Product! I have enough backing fabric. I absolutely love the color choices on this. Hot purples and oranges. They are so well chosen. The quilt is made by a 90 year old lady. It is perfectly pieced. It is KING sized. I quilted a free motion all over hook feather on it in the purple based red thread. Last picture is of the back. Now to bury a few threads and load another on the frame.
