Scrappy log cabin quilt success

Scrappy worked well for Janet. This is the quilt top she has sewn from the blocks at last weeks scrappy log cabin class. Although it is not truly random as she had selected green, brown and red fabrics from her scrap bag - it works well and shows off the log cabin blocks beautifully.
While we were at the class Margaret was working busily on her sampler quilt. The combinations of the pink and green Nancy Halvorsen fabrics look lovely.
She has used Sandie Lush designs for her quilting on most of the blocks.
as we can see with this work in process.
and here she is giving Janet a masterclass in how to assemble a quilt that has been made with the quilt-as-you-go method. Janet is looking very worried about it!
The weekend sunshine took us to Scotland to visit my Dad and to look around the wonderful new visitor centre at St Abbs. The village hall has been tastefully refurbished, but if you can't visit in person visit them on line here.
This is the view from the front of the visitor centre and looks good in the clear sunshine.
And finally
my new toy. When I learn how to use it , I hope this will greatly improve the photos on the blog.
Watch this space ....................

Happy Quilting xx
