Jan's Quilt

Hello everyone! I hope you are having a good fall. We are adjusting pretty well here to a busier schedule. My 4-year-old is in preschool this year and I'm dealing with different leave and get home times for all 3 kids. Things are good though and everyone is happy to be back in the swing of things.

A while back I finished up and photographed a quilt that I quilted for my friend Jan. This quilt is a true twin size, around 90" x 70", so I had my boys stand up on the rock ledge in our yard to hold up the quilt for photos:

(one boy is shorter than the other, we tried to get the quilt even and this is the best we could do)

The quilt top was made a long time ago by the grandmother of one of Jan's good friends. I made a back for it, and then quilted it. Here's the back:

I had fun working on this for Jan; we worked together on choosing the main back fabric and then I came up with the creative part of the back with the red strip and log cabin block. I like how it turned out, but I think it would have been better if I had made the log cabin block a few inches larger.

We think it's perfect just the way it is! We absolutely love it. Thank you!
