I made a 2nd Twisted Log Cabin quilt, again using my hand dyed gradated fabrics, but this time with a BLACK and grey background. My original TWISTED LOG CABIN quilt post is still my most popular post on my whole blog! Unfortunately though, that quilt is ruined because I used a yellow chalk to mark quilting lines and it would NOT come out in the washing machine. =c(
I can't believe I haven't uploaded a photo of this quilt yet!!! I still haven't had a chance to get a decent photograph of it, but today it is raining, so an indoor photo will have to suffice . . for now.
The back of the quilt looks cool too. But now it was time for the hard part - pulling out all the paper! Here are some photos of me pulling out some of the paper pieces.
In the borders/outer black areas, I did a very tight feather motif. I actually DON"T like what I did in this area as much. . .BUT. . It is a very dense quilting design. . . almost TOO dense I think. I feel that if I made the outer feathers a bit fatter I would have been more satisfied ;c)
