log cabin quilt

I finally finished it! Usually I ask Wren to hold up the finished quilts, but this one was a little bigger than crib size, and it was hard to fit in the picture. Anything to keep my "crazy lady in the apartment complex courtyard" rep.

I'm really happy with it, and I'm proud of it. Although I'm not proud that I started and finished it while ignoring a pile up of overdue gift projects for deserving friends. Oh well.

Here it is in it's future home. For now it lives in Jane's crib, but she'll be making the transition to "big girl bed" soon enough. And there's the big girl herself, with bangs in her eyes and brownie on her face. Soon to be on the quilt.

Once I finish my hand quilted whole cloth quilt (which I'm still working on, a few stitches every evening) everyone in the house will be sleeping under quilts made by me. So that's a nice goal. Maybe 2015?
