In The Hoop

Tim's Hoop

I'm getting close to the finish line on the Log Cabin quilt.



When I get so close to the end I have difficulty putting it down! It won't be long and I can bind it (black) and give it a wash. The top is antique and I usually don't wash antique tops until I have all the quilting done. The quilting adds strength to the top and there is much less chance of causing damage in the washer once the quilting is done.

Happy Quilting!
Tim

    1. it is interesting that some antiques do look very modern. The very simple log cabin block looks so different in solids...we expect them to always be scrap bag style
