Jason's Quilt

the power of facebook..
Other than sucking me into the world of Candy Crush..
It has done many things for me..
like connecting me to old friends I haven't seen in years..
Like Jason.
He used to hang out in our little 'group'
not the popular kids but not the outcasts either..
I like to think looking back that our group was the middle class..
Jason has since moved to Sunny Florida..
While I look out the window and see this...
Jason had asked me many moons ago
if I would make him a quilt..
I've been collecting fabric for it since..
I started out making the log cabin blocks..
48 of them using 2 1/2 inch strips.
I kept sewing my strips on until I had just the right amount..
I made the pattern up using 'Quilt Wizard'
While 'Quilt Wizard' is like the EQ7 line of software
it's not nearly as expensive...
Next I started sewing my blocks into strips..
I had this..
It's a bit larger than I thought it would be,
but with using 2 1/2" strips it had to be..
I'm quite happy with it.
I'm going to add a 1" border of black around the outside
then, another possibly 3 or 4" border of brown around that..


Please Leave me a Message.. I would love to hear from you!!
