hi everyone ~

hope you had a great weekend.  we had lots of stormy skies, lots of rain, but beautiful sunshine in between!

and in a sunshine moment, it was fun to take this log cabin rose quilt out onto the patio for a photo shoot!

this is a smaller, modified version from the original pattern, and makes a lovely tablescape all on it’s very own.  full of life, color, and sparkle!

i’m still in the process of editing photos for my upcoming post on my placement technique for the bobbin quilting on this piece, but i hope you will return to see how i did this.  it’s not a big secret… just a few simple tips. so come on back ya hear?!

 i decided the beautiful blues would look perfect as ‘spacers’… straight from my stash of hand dyed fabrics from the talented vicki welsh!  i love the varied blues, which in my eyes, adds some movement, depth, and interest, but also doesn’t overpower the flowers…and brings your eye to the roses with the navy blue centers… hopefully?

 each corner has a few words quilted, with a scripture verse:

“i have found the one my soul loves”  
{song of solomon 3:4}. 
soli deo gloria
p.s. linking up with “free motion by the river” too!

  1. Really, really pretty. The contrast with the background makes the flowers jump from the quilted background. xox

  2. Leslie, this is so lovely, nice color combinations too, and your free motion is to cry for! I love it, love it, love it! Summery and full of life! Love your work Les! Beautiful scripture too!
