What are you most proud of? I've always loved this layout. I found a picture of a floral quilt with leaves dancing up the blocks. In my quilt it's poinsettias that dance and lend movement. This was one of my very earliest experiences with free motion quilting and I think the spirals and swirls were a good choice. They were easy to learn and remain one of my favorite designs.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Log cabin quilts are so simple and so versatile. They also go together very quickly. Christmas fabrics are coming on sale right now and if you aren't too overwhelmed there is still time to stitch up a simple lap quilt or table topper.

Wow.....wonderful quilt and beautiful story. Thanks so much, was remember my own mother today as I finished a Christmas present, she would have so loved the Craftsy Community. She was my inspiration and teacher into my love of sewing. Need to look into motion quilting, not sure about that.

I think the holidays are a time when our thoughts turn more to those we love, whether with us or gone from our lives. My mother also inspired my love of sewing. You should try the free motion quilting. I didn't even think about trying it until well after I had retired. Who says you can't teach an old sewing grandma new tricks?

LOL.......well that certainly is me, an old gramma, and I keep learning every day! Thanks :)
