Log Cabin Pillow

After  yesterdays rant we sorted out the bed..didnt get to sleep in it much as our youngest kept us up most of the night with a brewing UTI, got the house sparkling for the inspection (and the agent didnt even look!! Aarggh! but at least it still looks nice), still working on the other things.

But I gave myself the afternoon off everything else and made Little Miss Sunshine a log cabin pillow - out of the left overs from the quilt I am making her. Ive always wanted to do one of these and I totally loved making it!! there will be more to come... Its a great way of using up the fabric too, because the Oi Lily one at $90 a metre (I only bought half) is going to have every last scrap used!!!

the quilting isn't perfect but I am so happy with how it turned out :)

Love this!!!! Esp the polkadot centre.... looks like the same fabric I have for Laura's quilt (if it ever gets finished.....)

Thanks Jacqui. I read somewhere that traditionally the centre of a log cabin patchwork is red - which is perfect for me who loves red polka dots!
Umm...yes.. Keeley's quilt front has been made for about a year..but Im too scared about quilting it because its a queen.... but cant afford $200 for someone else to do it. I might get brave and get it done.
