Pause and Remember – 5/11/2012

On Friday, I pause and remember a single, wordless moment from the past week – inspired by The Warden’s Log.

My original post about this quilt is here

  1. Thank you so much for showcasing this quilt and the link to the previous post. I wasn’t reading blogs much in 2008, so I had missed that beautiful quilt.

  2. I love this quilt! Thanks for the link back to the original post. I’ve never heardof a pillow topper. What a neat idea!

  3. What a pretty sight this must be in your neighborhood to see this quilt airing out in the yard! What a beautiful job you have done with it.

  4. I had read several of your May postings before, but without time to comment, so have enjoyed re-reading and then catching up to date.
    You present your family stories and photos in a very appealing manner.
    In linking back to your Kentucky Log Cabin quilt I went on a search to see if you had posted a machine quilting tutorial. I didn’t find one.
    It is a finish option I need to explore but previous efforts on small pieces left me feeling that my machine quilting was an insult to my piecing skills. Any suggestions welcome!

    1. Thank you for your nice comments.

      As for machine quilting, I also feel that my quilting is an insult to my piecing. I used some mediocre free-motion quilting on the Log Cabin quilt, but definitely felt it deserved better. Aside from the expense of having someone quilt for me, I just like the idea of finishing a project myself. I believe you mentioned having someone reasonable in your area but she was limited in the patterns she could use.

      Maybe your quilting is better than you think it is. We can be awfully hard on ourselves sometimes. (I know mine isn’t, though.)

      Nice to hear from you. I continue to be amazed at your beautifully written and photographed posts. Lillian
