My Sweet Prairie Quilt (in progress)

Every summer, after months of thread painting, I literally get a quilt out of my system and it feels GOOD.  It seems to balance me.  I made a trip to our local quilt shop last week to buy beige as you might of heard.  I came away with these...


On Canada Day weekend I chopped it all up and sewed it all back together again.  /  why does that sound so crazy??  /


TADA!  Quilt top nearly done...  It was a good experience to cut and piece without perfection.  I liked it.  I've never made a quilt this way before.


There's no pattern to this besides the fact that it's a log cabin.  The centers are grey solids that I will be embroidering some love into.  The 'logs' are all the other fabrics placed however I felt like placing them.  They are cut in all directions and of varying widths.  It's my log cabin - my way.


Here is part of the quilt top, hanging fashionably in the wind on my kids' badminton net.  : )  Since then I have added a patchwork border in lots more little squares, and then the yellow & white floral as an outer border.  I can hardly wait to hand quilt this.  They whole thing... maybe in that raspberry color to totally show off the stitches. 

There is my work in progress! : )  Last year's summer quilt will be donated to flood victims of southern Alberta.  Linking to The Needle and Thread Network for WIP Wednesday.

The yellow is wonderful with the little pops of color and the design is lovely.

Looks so summery and pretty - I'm excited to see the whole top one day. How lovely to donate your last year's summer quilt. I've sent some blocks to Cheryl for her Recover Southern Alberta project. I hope they get lots of quilts to share!
