What Next?

This is just a quickie post to show you some pics. I finished the Humility Quilt blocks. I'm sure there's a name for this log cabin setting, but can't begin to remember what it's called.

A closer look:

In yesterday's post, the humility block was the middle block second row from the bottom. Probably still can't tell. A lesson for all of us to just keep working and not fuss so much with making everything just "right."

And look what I got in the mail! Bonnie finished quilting my Bed Quilt. She did a gorgeous job. Here are a few peaks:



Oh no, decisions, what to do next? I want to get the binding on but I know how dangerous it is for me to stop working on a quilt in progress. I gotta keep working on it while I have the momentum. Hmm, I think I just made my decision.

Gorgeous setting for your log cabins AND gorgeous quilting done by Bonnie! Wow, aren't you the lucky girl to be getting so much accomplished and it's only the third week in January! :o) Good work!

Joyce said...

Love the log cabin arrangement. I agree. Keep on with the log cabin. The binding can wait. I find it better not to stop when on a roll.

I love THIS setting on the Log Cabin Blocks too. Wow, the blocks have such depth--I feel like I could just jump into them.

comicbooklady said...

yeah! I love this setting too! and Bonnie's work is beautiful, too. the binding can wait.

Wow, it is beautifull There is so much dimension. It looks as if some of those 'windows' go 2 feet into the quilt. Well done

Lea said...

Love your log cabin! It really stands your color and style. :-)
and Bonnie's quilting is so beautiful with your quilt.
Gee...I'm so jealous of you. :-)

I like the final layout of the log cabin, well I assume it's the final layout!

Looking forward to seeing your quilt all bound and finished.

Melissa said...

Your quilt is beautiful! It looks so cool!

Mindy said...

I love this layout. So beautiful! Your colors are certainly gorgeous and are very much my favorite colors too. Funny, I've never really done anything in those colors even though I'm totally captivated by them!

Karen said...

This layout is called Straight Furrows. So beautiful, Tonya.

kate said...

Like this setting. Reminds me of sunshine coming through my windows on a summer day.

Jackie said...

Absolutely love the quilt!! It almost looks 3 D in the picture. The colors are fantastic!

La Manosa said...

Wow, your quilt is looking great! You must be really excited to see it coming together so nicely. I'm definitely inspired to try a log cabin soon.

The quilting on your other quilt is really nice. Bonnie did a lovely job.

I love how you've played with the log cabin. It's one of my favorite patterns.

So glad I found your site. I'm a quilter as well - been quilting for 30 years and am just now getting on the web. What fun!

I'll be checking your site often.

Your log cabin is sooooo so so so pretty. Couldn't make out any humility blocks even looking hard for them. And your bed quilt is beautiful. You have warmer temps there than I do here. Brrrr! It's been nipple wrinkling cold.

Janet said...

Your quilt is stunning!!! Wow!!!

PaMdora said...

I love the illusion in the top phots, but am really curious what the bed quilt says? Great way of doing writing in patchwork -- how fun. Do you improv, or plan it out?

Bobbie Bentneedle said...

Great blocks - love the layout, and the name for the layout is perfect for you this time of year... Sunshine and Shadows!
Thanks for the inspiration.

Mary said...

Straight Furrows is my favorite setting for log cabins - simple but effective. Both quilts look wonderful.

Brikebrok said...

Gorgeous !

anne bebbington said...

No idea what this setting is called but it's brilliant - makes the blocks look three dimensional and faceted - good job!!!

mountain-quiltist said...

Tonya, how do you decide which setting to use for those Humility Blocks? I like the one you're showing today, but I also liked the zigzag setting of the other day too! I'd want both of them!!
I love reading your blog...It's a mini getaway to Paris, and a delight for these old quilty eyes when I see what you're working on. Thanks for taking lots of pics and putting them up to share with us.

YankeeQuilter said...

Is this one sunshine and shadows? I think so. Anyway, I love it! I'd keep going on this quilt.

Pam said...

Outstanding quilt. It looks so dimensional. Of course, those are my colors, so they are outstanding, too. Keep up the good work.

Archaic Dome said...

I'm working on a decidedly NOT liberated log cabin right now too (my oldest friend is getting married! Yay!). I'm having the same setting dilemma you were having, but I think I settled on barn raising. You always do such beautiful work. Keep on inspiring me, Ton!

katelnorth said...

pretty log cabin, Tonya - I think that setting is called Sunshine and Shadows, but I could be wrong. I love the movement in yours.

Katie said...

Isn't that Straight Furrows?

It's stunning!! :-)

Sue in western WA said...

Okay, I SO did not pick out your humility block!

I actually prefer the streak of lightning or barn raising sets over this one. Guess there's one in every crowd!

Quiltdivajulie said...

Is there anything much better than opening a box with a freshly quilted quilt inside?!?!? That feeling ranks really high on my list of favorites!

Your work continues to inspire me!
