Cat Stevens' Sings My Song!

Hi there!

In the words and voice of Cat Stevens', I've decided to start using some of my friend's fabrics.

I had pre-cut the strips for this log cabin BEFORE I received her gorgeous fabrics, but I decided to dig into the April Cornell, for the appliquéd flowers and for the border.


This morning, I had all my log cabins done. They then had to be squared off and sewn together.


Then, I had to cut my "background" fabrics - that's the ivory colored blocks.

Done !

Then, I had to trace my flowers and stems and leaves, on some Wunder Under, cut them out and re-iron them on my background blocks.

Done !

Nope, I haven't added the leaves on the block, yet. And I went and pinned up the outside border fabric.... for your viewing pleasure.

This pattern came from "Anka's Treasures", by Heather Mulder Peterson. Each and every quilt in this book, IMHO, is SOOOOOO adorable and do-able, too!
