Mum came over on Thursday and I realized that she hadn't seen the Rainbow Log Cabin or as it is now known as, Grace's Rainbow Log Cabin Quilt, since we sandwiched it that day in the school holidays. And then I realized, I hadn't blogged it since I had finished it. So here we go, the largest quilt I have ever sewn and quilted is finished.
The finished size is 48 inches by 78 inches. I went through 3 and a half reels of 250 metre cotton thread for the meandering stippling, so about 1,750 metres of thread for the meandering stippling.....
I found it hard to photograph it flat. The above photo was taken standing on a little step ladder on top of a wooden blanket box and I still didn't get the angle right. I didn't dare lean over any further.
This is my favourite shot. She looks pretty pleased with her quilt. She likes laying on it and playing match the material, first she finds say a strip of orange with spots on it and then trys and finds a matching bit on the quilt somewhere. Kinda like eye spy with colours. She has slept under it every night since I put it on her bed which makes me feel like putting two thumbs up and going YESSSSSSS! I knew she was excitied at it being made but thought after a few days she'd request her doona cover back but nope! Guess I'm not that bad a Mum after all, hey Grace?
