This quilt has just sort of snuck in under the radar. Every now and then I have one that kind of demands my full attention no matter what! I have kept up with the goal of working on a certain amount of applique for the fire quilt each week and then… well, I gleefully pulled this one out and got right to work.

Low Volume Log Cabin with the borders attached

It was simple work to stitch the primitive star onto the quilt. Easy peasy. The appliqued scallops were next up. They have been getting worked on here and there in what feels a lot like stolen minutes. Finally, {ha! it was very speedy work really} they reached the point of being ready to sew onto the main part of the quilt.

With some applique work….

I fussed with the corner blocks for a very short time and then decided to go with another log cabin style of block. Afterall, there was plenty of those leftover strippy lengths to play with. I am so very happy with the soft, relaxed look of this quilt. Hopefully it can be quilted in a way that only emphasizes its best points. You know, later on, when it finally gets a turn in the hoop….

Interesting in black and white….

I was curious to see the quilt in a black and white photo. Does the value hold up under close scrutiny? Hmm… It definitely needs some fine tuning in the stitching department. Maybe some big stitching work on this one? Ahem! Later. Stitching to be done on this one LATER.*wink
