Improvised Quilt: Work in Progress Wednesday | New Quilters

Today’s project (and yesterday’s, and tomorrow’s) is machine quilting a quilt using some of the improvised Log Cabin blocks I made from my red scrap bag. The blocks themselves make a vertical line of red in a field of white. The blocks are simply stitched in the ditch, and now I’m working on stippling acres and acres of white, using my Brother 1500S mid-arm machine. I’ve gotten better at stippling over the years, and it’s fun. Here’s a view of a couple of the blocks:

And here’s another view that shows more of the stippling:

One of the joys of using up scraps is getting to rediscover fabrics I especially loved from earlier quilts, but didn’t have enough of to use in a larger format. My scrap bag was full of forgotten old friends I enjoyed pulling out and fitting into my blocks.
