Hi everyone, I have been working hard the last two days finishing the log cabin Beatrix Potter quilt top. I just love it. This is definitely one of my favorite quilts I've made so far. You can see a close-up of the blocks in my first post about this quilt. It was supposed to be a baby quilt. But it is definitely a lap size quilt. My daughter asked me why I always make my baby quilt so big. I just told her.....I can't help myself. I just keep getting inspired and come up with more ideas, then end up with a lap size quilt. I kind of create as I go. Which can be a problem sometimes. Not having fully developed the plan ahead of time, I often either run out of a certain material, or just, just have enough. Oh well!!! I love this one. I think I'm going to have it professionally quilted. I worked really hard on this quilt and don't want to ruin it with my quilting. I don't feel like quilting it by hand either. Quilting is always a big stress for me. I love making the tops. I could make quilt tops, and just do that. But I also like to finish my projects. I also have to keep my stress level down...since it's really affected my health lately. So, I'm getting it professionally quilted. I'm excited. I can't wait to have it all done. This quilt is a gift for my brother and his wife who are soon to have their first baby. I'm going to make a matching bag with the leftover fabrics. These pictures just don't do this quilt top justice. It looks much better in person. I hope you all like it.
