New Quilt

I've started a new quilt. It's a stash buster - I'm using all my favorite fabrics, including a few I haven't dared cut into over the years.
I've been cutting the selvages off the fabrics as I go. All the colored circles look cool lined up together.

Cabin Fever - finished! (except for binding)

I finished Cabin Fever. I quilted it and trimmed the excess. I need to sew binding and attach it.

Here is the back. I've gotten in the habit of piecing in a yellow strip somewhere on each back. I didn't intend for the back to be lopsided (the lines reference the sides) but I guess I didn't lay it down straight when sandwiching it and I quite prefer it this way.

Cabin Fever

I've finished the quilt top - I'm calling it 'Cabin Fever' since it has crazy log cabin blocks. It was fun to make. I've been trying to work out a border - I have one border ready, on the bottom in the photo. I'll add a 2" white strip to the outside and then bind with dark colors. I would LOVE to hand quilt it with embroidery floss but that's not going to happen (the hand quilting) so I'll machine quilt it.
