Elliott's Log Cabin


Just a short and sweet update for you today. The baby for whom this quilt is being made was born last night so I guess it's time to get it finished up. The top is done for now and as soon as I decide how to quilt it I'll get it basted. This is always the hardest part.

I also think it's funny that all of my quilts have fingers at the top and feet at the bottom so I decided not to crop them out this time. By the way, Jason is a really great quilt model for me. He never argues when I ask him to help me out. And he's always smiling behind there. I can tell.

This quilt has lots and lots of polka dots and letters, along with a few monkeys and giraffes for good measure. All the fabrics are from my stash (love that). It's basically a crib quilt that grew a bit because I decided to add the sashing and borders. At this point I think it would have worked either way but it's growing on my like this. Sometimes you have to live with a project for a while before you fall in love with it. I'll share more after it's finished!

Linking up this morning with SEWjo Saturday. Check it out. And also to Crazy Mom Quilts.
