Today's quilt is a real oldie but goodie. It pre-dates my finished project list, which is housed on my computer. Do you keep a list of finished projects? I like to look back and see what I've accomplished. Now, I can even see it in living color on my own blog.
This quilt is a scrappy log cabin set in a field and furrows layout. It is made from 1.5" strips. I finished it before 2001 which is when I started keeping track of my projects. I started it in a workshop with Charlotte Angotti, perhaps in 1989? I'm not sure who machine quilted it for me, it may have been my friend Sandie, who blogs at The Lone Quilter. It is stippled all over.

Do you remember these? Do you have them in your fabric stash?

Thanks for visiting!
Pugs and kisses,
P.S. Sorry for my absence on the blog. I've been sick and am just starting to return to the land of the living. I'm sorry that I took breathing through my nose for granted. Within two weeks I've had a cold, a sore throat, and an upset stomach. I think I've used up my sick quota for Winter 2015. It's not my turn anymore!
