Gone Basting

Fall is coming.  I can smell it in the mornings when I wake up.  Suddenly an urge to quilt a quilt.  Out from my pile of tops came this pretty little thing.  I got it basted last night.

This quilt was started last year as part of a wonky log cabin quilt along.  I discovered I was not very wonky.  Any wonkiness your see is not  intentional wonky just new quilter wonky.  Around the same time, I found this wonderful tutorial.  Larrissa taught me all about strip piecing and inspired my quilt.  I am so happy that the time has come to finish this one.  It's been waiting long enough.  I cannot wait to quilt it!

Next time...a lovely crinkled quilt to share.


  1. Ahhh, I remember it now! Is it flannel, or did I just imagine that part?

  2. fun quilts...basting is my biggest chore when it comes to quilting.

  3. I wish I could smell Fall in the air around here! I'm ready for it! Your quilt looks so beautiful all basted and ready to be quilted. Have fun finishing it!

  4. Mmmm, I LOVE that Simple Abundance line. I have a mostly-finished quilt top in it, and think I'll be working on it soon, so I can snuggle under it on the cool autumn nights to come! Can't wait to see how yours turns out!

  5. I have a few quilts to baste and quilt...if only I could just get to them. I keep starting new ones before actually finishing them. Yours looks great!

  6. Oh I can hardly wait to see you quilt, quilted. :o) Will you hand quilt or machine quilt?
    I am so ready for fall. It is still in the 90's here and would love a cool breeze every now and again. :o)
    I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.
    Sincerely ~ Trish
