Uneven Log Cabin Quilt

It took me a while, but I finally finished the BIG quilt I have been working on!  It is a queen size quilt and it the largest I've made.  It took me a long time, but mostly because I started and stopped on it so much.  The sewing part wasn't hard, but cutting all the pieces took a really long time!

The pattern for this quilt was published in the Better Homes and Gardens Quilts and More Magazine, Summer 2015 issue.  It was designed by Natalia Bonner (

Here are a few in-progress shots:

And, the finished quilt!

I tried to do a project without any green in it, but it just didn't happen!  I ended up going with a solid green for the edge-banding, and I'm glad I did.

It took me a long time to select a backing for the quilt.  I finally found this blue gingham print,and I think it works perfectly with the front of the quilt.

I want to point out that I quilted this using my standard size sewing machine.  It was tricky, but after watching a few instructional videos on YouTube, I was able to figure out how to work with a quilt this large on my standard machine.  

On to the next quilt...
