The Magic Number........480!!!!!

Well I have finally reached that "Magic Number" of 480 Log cabins Blocks, I just love these:

I have mixed emotions about reaching my goal..........i cant wait to see the quilt top all together, yet im really going to miss sewing this little blocks. Just as a matter of interest, i started sewing them on 16 February (this year), they r 4 inch finished and they consist of 6240 individual pieces!!!! (wow thats a lot of cutting) lol and a lot of stash used up!!!!!

So the next few weeks,for me, will be spent sewing them all together. I need to make 30 of these blocks which will then become my quilt top:

This one is definetley going to the quilters for finishing, which will be a new experience for me but an enjoyable one im sure!!!!

Thnx to everyone who left a birthday wish for Maddi......she loved reading them!!! She had a fantastic day on Wednesday and then a party with her friends yesterday. They r a great bunch of girls and they made her day special!!! Im sure they will be friends for life!!!

Take care

Excellent job on the log cabin blocks! You must have paper pieced these blocks--I can't imagine cutting strips so narrow!kxt

Linda said...

Rose you have more patience than I'd ever have with all those log cabin blocks, but they are just gorgeous. I'm sure it's going to be a beautiful quilt when it's finished.

Anne Ida said...

YEY!!! YOU DID IT!!! Oh, they look great, sweetie! Can hardly wait to see them all sewn together! This will be a wonderful quilt!

Elin said...

What a piece of work you have done! Very impressing. I think you are very clever. Will it be a quilt for a double bed, or what?
And for you (and other foreigners) I have now started writing some of my blog in English. Hope you'll enjoy it. Elin from Norway.

Congratulations Rose. Well done!!
Your quilt is going to be beautiful. What commitment you have, I'm sure I'd have lost interest long before finishing them. Can't wait to see it put together.

Great Cabin Blocks!! I love calculating individual quilt pieces in a quilt..6240 is a huge number.

Darlene said...

Rose, you little loggies are adorable! I absolutely love them! You've finished - I can hardly wait to see your finished quilt. Did you do them on a foundation?

Rose, this is going to be fantastic when you stitch those blocks all together. You've been very productive getting these done so quickly.

Wow, that's a *lot* of little blocks and pieces! They do look neat tumbling out of the container. I can hardly wait to see the quilt, and I know the quilter will just have a marvelous time with this.

Fantastic - you should be very proud that you have finished so many ! I bet you can't wait to have them all sewn together. We all can't wait either.
