Logging with Hollie!

Another commission from our DIL's mother... I purchased this log cabin quilt top in the summer of 2013. I've always been attracted to navy and beige/white quilts. As I was picking up my purchases at the Lupin Quilt Fair and Sale, Hollie came up to me and introduced herself; she had made a few of the quilt tops I had bought including this one. It's always nice to put a face to a name and I was so very pleased to meet her. Now Hollie is one of my employees!

I used FilTec's Glide thread in Mocha on top and Glide Beige for the bottom thread, 80/20 batting made it soft, and a 108" wide backing in cream completed the quilting sandwich.

I wanted movement on this top and what better way to create it than to use feathers... this pantograph is from Urban Elementz and is called Chartreuse © 2014  Patricia E. Ritter. 

Hollie's tops are a pleasure to quilt... they lay flat and square. This pantograph looks amazing on a log cabin!

Hollie and her friend Shannon happened to drop by that day. It's hard to get photos of a large quilt when you're alone!

Thank you ladies! You were a big help.

Another closer view of the back...

Only one more commission left to write about and then we'll resume customer quilts. Stay tuned!
