Sew and Tell

Here's my Sew and Tell for this week. I finally got all the quilting done on my Wonky Log Cabin Quilt last weekend and finished sewing the binding on monday. Then today I washed and dried it. I just LOVE the crinkly goodness. Below are a couple of close up shots.
Here's a pix showing the fabric I used for the backing.


So, now I managed to complete one of the items I had on my Joy in the New Year Challenge list. I still have 3 more items that need finishing. Hopefully, this weekend I can either sandwich the next quilt on my list or piece a backing for one of the other 2 quilts I have waiting. Of course, since I joined the challenge I have managed to start a couple new projects. So, I hope to squeeze in a bit of "play" time on them, too.

Mmm-mmm...that is pretty! And I know what you mean about the crinkly goodness. I think my favorite part of making a quilt is pulling it out of the dryer after the first wash! ;o)

Congratulations on finishing your wonky log cabin and it looks beautiful! I still have to make a backing, quilt and bind mine. I'm also trying to decide whether to add another border.

Aren't Wonky blocks so much fun! Great color combinations. It gives it a whimsy feel to the quilt.
