5 years in the making

This log cabin quilt was one of those quilts.  I started making it on a whim, made a million blocks, pieced the top, the top was like a California King Sized quilt, it sat and sat for years in a bin, never getting finished.  I started this quilt in 2007, here is the post!  I love blogging, it's like a diary.
When I was visiting my Aunt Karen in Wyoming in 2010, I asked her what colors she'd like in a quilt.  She said blue and yellow.  Guess what quilt popped into my head?  This lovely log cabin top I've had hidden away for years.
I finally took two entire rows off of it, to make it more suitable for a queen size bed.  My friend Charissa quilted it for me.  I then packed it up and took it to Wyoming with me this summer.  My Aunt was thrilled!

I was thrilled to have it out of a bin and being loved.  5 years later...

Very nice! Don't you love when things like that just work out? I bet 2 rows would be enough to make a baby quilt, unless you used them on the back.
