Curved Log Cabin Quilt Top.

A while ago I decided to make a red and white quilt.  I started acquiring lots of different red fabrics with no idea what design I was going to use.  In April, I came up with the idea of a Red and White Curved Log Cabin quilt, and the fun began.

After cutting the fabric, 2.5" strips for the red fabric and 1.5" for the Kona white, I got busy chain-piecing.  Building those blocks was time-consuming and a lot of fun.  I trued them up as I went.

Since I didn't do any careful planning, I ended up two blocks short!  I made those two, plus one more for insurance, and played around with the layout

I played around with the layout and decide on this one.  One of my friends sees PacMan and another sees bikinis!  I love how it's laid out and stitched it together.

I used lots of leftover FQs from this project to piece the quilt back.  You can see that Frisco is a big help, as usual.

I kept finding other things to do instead of calling my local LAQ and setting an appointment to bring this to her.  I decided that my subconscious knew this quilt needed custom quilting!  So I contacted someone who has done custom for me in the past and shipped it to her.  Yes, it will cost more, but I think this quilt deserves custom quilting.  I'll have it back in June after I return from my trip to Tuscany, Florence, and NYC.

May your bobbins always be full,
