After many years, Christmas Log Cabin is a finished top!

I don't even know how many years I have spent trying to finish this intricate log cabin Christmas quilt.  It is a joy to have it done.  I didn't plan to quilt is soon, but it is pressed so nice and crisp right now that I laid it on a spare bed and am going to try to baste it right away so I don't have to repress it later.  I also plan to make pillowcases and pillow covers to match from the leftover fabric.  I purchased two kits many years ago of the same fabric with no plans of what to make out of it.  I just knew I loved the fabric.  Later, I added greens, golds, reds, and blacks to it so I would have enough to make this quilt.  I made sure most pieces had flecks of metalic gold in them.   

This quilt was also a draw number on my Patchwork Times list that I didn't get done a few months back.  Now I am back on track and have completed everything on the list so far.






I also got my Flowering Snowball pressed and on the quilt frames.  I hope to baste and quilt it this week.  This is this July's draw number for Patchwork Times and my One Monthly Goal.  I guess I have two weeks to get it done.

Love the Xmas quilt. It would be a shame to fold the top up and get it creased.
How's the little one going. Have you had lots of hugs...

The Christmas quilt looks beautiful. Congrats on a finish! I wouldn't want to fold it away either. Keeping it on the bed until you can quilt it is a great idea!

The log cabin quilt is very involved... so well done on finally getting the top finished! I love it when it is all freshly pressed too. I really like your flowering snowball quilt, and would love to add this to my list of one day quilts, but cringe a bit at the curved piecing and the need for precision. Maybe one day :o)
