If you are like me you couldn’t wait to see the Log Cabin anniversary quilt finished! This one took quite a while, but just because of its size.  I really enjoyed working on this curved log cabin block.  The strips themselves were either 1.5″ or 2.5″ depending on which side of the square they were on.  I worked on several blocks at a time so that I could chain piece and move through quickly without getting too bored.

Once the blocks were all laid out and put together it was on to the quilting!  I decided an all over design that was kinda flowery and curvy to break up all the straight lines of the blocks.  I think it worked out pretty well.  A little modern, but still enough traditional to compliment the quilt pattern.

Trimming and binding on this King size quilt was a King sized job, too!  There is a lot of weight to this and finding a space large enough to trim a good section is not easy.  I spent a lot of time rearranging to cut a small section and then rearrange again.  Sewing the binding on is the same story.  All the weight has to be supported so it doesn’t pull through the machine.  I have a large folding table to try to help distribute the weight.

One of my favorite parts of finishing the quilt is the hand stitching on the binding.  I can do this just about anywhere, so its a nice change from standing at the frame to work.  I love getting to the end of a side and finishing up that corner!

Here are some of the final pictures!  Keep in mind that it is a King size quilt shown on a Queen bed.  I hope you enjoyed it!  Have any of you tried this pattern?  I would love to hear from you in the comments or see any photos of your quilts!
