Log Cabin Bed Quilt and matching toiletries bag.

Here is a quilt I made for a friend. Then for Christmas I made her a matching toiletries bag with plastic lining so as to maintain the rustling noise like plastic shopping bags.

Jelly Roll Race - small quilt

As an interlude I have made a quick quilt for a bed topper, just as a break!

I brought the backing fabric forward as the binding, choosing to machine stitch it.

Border 8&9 complete ...with adjustments!

We TT's decided to change Mrs Billings' border arrangements. We did not like the aesthetics of the appearance of the wider solid borders. The flowers did need to be surrounded by a solid border at the 3/4' finished width.

Progressive photos follow.

 I loved the fussy cutting of the flowers and love the overall effect of this one.

Couldn't help putting in the ones of Jax!
