colorful log cabin was something I started in early January with Chris's daughter Molly in mind (not knowing whether Molly would like this). Chris told me that she really liked it and that it probably wouldn't fit into Molly's bedroom. So...HOUSEWARMING PRESENT FOR CHRIS!!!!! The piano key border is stunning although a lot of work. But I love the end result.
Not only do I have a sister-in-law named Chris, I have a nephew named Chris, and guess where he lives. Yep, Orlando. And guess who is having their first child? Yep, Chris and his wife Andi.
Chawne Kimber and am combining machine quilting with hand quilting. And I must say I like this look very much. Besides, it's cold out and sitting under a quilt while working on it is rather perfect. Let John call me Betsy Ross all he wants to. Sometimes as I work on a quilt, it comes to me who it is for. This one? for grandson Sammy. He's in Northern Michigan, and this is one warm and big quilt!

I can put a picture on the front of the book as well as on the back. So these books give me a chance to review what I've done in the past year and which projects I want to put on the cover and back. My tribute to all things 8.5" x 11, which is in my dining room, won out for the front. And the Glam Clam that was hand-pieced and hand-quilted won out for the back.
