Design Wall Monday

I recently enjoyed my first quilt class.  It was so much fun. Sue, from my daughter's church taught a room full of mothers and daughters and granddaughters how to make the Log Cabin block using Eleanor Burns, Quilt in a Day book. I needed a lot of help to get started, but by the end of the class I was able to see the progression of putting the pieces together to make the block. Granddaughter, Elyse, who's 11,  got some practice sewing and 9 year old granddaughter, Abigail sewed for a minute, but was lured away from the sewing machine by the other children. 

The next step is to finish the blocks. Then I'll decide how to finish the project. I'm thinking it will be big enough for a recliner throw. I use those frequently; a snugly throw and the recliner. Ha Ha.

  1. I love Eleanor Burns patterns. I am using the Delectable Mountains now. Once you start making blocks, you just get addicted :)

  2. Eleanor Burns log cabin is a great start. You did a class, enjoyed it and you said the word 'progress' - all good.

  3. I like what you have so far. Log cabin blocks are fun, and so many ways to put them together into a quilt. I'm looking forward to seeing yours.

  4. I got some more fabric for my log cabin quilt the other day. I hope I got enough. I'm planning to turn it into a twin size quilt for Faith, since I already made blankets for Elyse and Abby several years ago.
