Quilts From My Past January 10, 2013Posted by Pam in KC in Uncategorized.
This quarter log cabin quilt was probably the 3rd or 4th quilt I finished. I made it as a store sample when I was working at Northwest Fabrics & Crafts. The date stitched on the back is May 1991.
Believe it or not the gold is tissue lamé. Although I hadn’t quilted much, I knew I really didn’t want that thin, ravelly stuff in my quilt, but given that’s what I had to work with I had to come up with some way to make it work.
I carefully fused black knit interfacing to the lamé. It stabilized the fabric enough for me to work with, although I haven’t washed the wall hanging. It has three tabs at the top to allow it to hang from a cafe rod.
The piece measures 33″ square and there is very little quilting in it — just stitch in a ditch around the blocks (not logs) and the border. I have no idea what type of batting was used.
