Project

My first quilt - Log Cabin (circa 1993)

What are you most proud of? Finishing it! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Fabrics come and go - at the time, I wanted the blues and pinks...it was the 90s! Pick what suits you.

Q&A with Sticklebat

Maimie asked:
The Log Cabin from Quilt In A Day was my first quilt also. It took me a few weeks (working on it a little each weekend). It was what started me quilting. Mine had greens and creams with a red center. I had to send mine out to be quilted since it was king size. I still haven't gotten the hang of quilting other than in the ditch. I have been doing this only a few years. Great first quilt!

Thanks! I am still more of a ditcher myself, but taking a long arm quilting machine certification class this week. I just have too many quilts! LOL. I usually use my best long arm quilter - sewingnancy@aol.com aka Nancy Williams - she does a fabulous job. Quilting is addictive! Thanks for sharing your first quilt too!
brendak asked:
I started the Log Cabin quilt also for my first by using the same book. Problem is I sewed all my blocks together and thats as far as I got. I have everything I need to finish mine, I just goot lazy. I would have to send my to be quilted also. I have heard the term stitch in the ditch, but don''t have a clue how to do it. Could you instruct me on how its done? I would apprediate it.
Sticklebat answered:
If you can get the quilt setup - sandwiched with backing, batting, and top - and pinned, you just sew where the blocks/fabrics are sewn together. It is best to start in the middle. Check out this video. Good luck.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dt0Zq-DBBkI
