The Shop Hop Quilt

With the shop hop over, I can show off the quilt.  This was our 6th year, the "wood" anniversary, so each owner was challenged to create their own original log cabin quilt.  Mine is titled "Aunt Glady's Permanent Wave", named for my Great Aunt Gladys, who had a cosmetology license for over 60 years!
I used 30's reproduction prints and solid blue and yellow Kona Cotton.  The size is 74" x 86".  Here's a close-up, so you can see the pretty machine quilting done by Lilly Lucier of Vanceboro, NC.
I'll set up my machine tomorrow morning and get back to work.  I have at least 4 projects that need attention.

I love it! The blue is beautiful and really sets of the prints.

I like this new look of nothing having to be perfectly straight; a wave and crooked on purpose. It forces the imagination to think about creativity when you stare at it. I work in a very fancy laboratory and the designer (owner) would go nuts to have this new look on the wall of our conference room!!
