Log Cabin Backing

Before I start I'm thrilled to say that one of my Favorite Quilty Heroes was and is having giveaways to celebrate her 100th post and I was privileged to be one of the winners! I have to say it was quite a funny picture this morning of me in my pj's gasping and bouncing around while my husband stared on in wonder :D hehe! Anyway go check out her site she's amazing and maybe you'll be jumping around in your pj's soon too!

So, remember that post I was confessing my sins of the only sewing that had happened in weeks...

Well this is what it turned into!

I'm preparing to back the Log Cabin Suburbia quilt and I think it looks great! (personal opinion ;) ) I think I'm gonna try out some spray on basting for this one. Does anyone have a favorite brand? Spray on basting loves and hates? Let me know please! I'll being doing that soon or I'll chicken out because of the size and just visit the Missouri Star Quilt Co. with quilt in hand and see what there long arm can do for me! We shall see :)

Anyway this has been blogged over at MSQC and will be posted later this afternoon and you'll be able to cruise over and see more pics for now you can check out my sister's T-shirt quilts she has been doing for clients in Missouri that are currently being blogged on the MSQC blog The Cutting Table. Enjoy!


  1. That looks great! I can't wait to see it in person! and I can totally imagine you jumping up and down and squealing with delight! Congrats on the win! Love ya!

  2. Hi Hillary!

    Love your quilt, colors and the name!
    I saw that you won over at Don't Look Now . . . JEALOUS!!!

    Good for you though!

    I've used 505 spray adhesive when doing faux chenille and the only thing I remember about it was that it didn't stay 'sticky' for too many days after spraying. Other than that, it was good for keeping all the layers together as I sewed!

    Good luck, can't wait to see what you end up doing!


Leave me some happy thoughts~
