Unfinished log cabin

I love these pretty fabrics but gee log cabins can get a little boring! This one might stay in the UFO pile for a while!

I started making this with a Jelly Roll - cutting each strip down the middle, so each log is 3/4" wide. I have enough to make another 20 blocks - another round all the way round in the barn raising style, but I've lost interest for the moment. I have been tempted to make the quilt so far into a very large, squashy cushion and refuse to do any more!

Charm Square Quilt

This photo only shows the quilt top, although this quilt is now finished. A nice, lap sized quilt made of two packs of charm squares. How easy this was to put together, but I think it ended up being quite pretty.

Keira's Quilt

I made this little cot quilt quickly with some pretty charm squares for my J's sister's fourth child Keira. It is unbound in this photo, unfortunately. Spice is assisting in the foreground.

Holly Jolly Table Runner

I put together this quick table runner using a Holly Jolly Jelly Roll. Inspiration for the design came from a pattern listed for sale at Fat Quarter Shop, which was for a quilt using the same fabrics and a gift box motif. I made up this design myself and made enough gift boxes for 2 table runners a couple little gift bags for Christmas. Although this project is now finished (and in the wash after a Christmas party!) I only took a photo at this unfinished stage.
