This is my “Luke Quilt” that was requested by a good friend last year. I delivered some goodies to her first and then went on to drag my feet for another 12 months before I finished the quilt for ‘not-so-baby-now Luke’.
This baby quilt - a single Log Cabin block, is a huge 50″ square that took about 2 solid days of quilting that my left my arms aching quite a bit. The puffiness of some of the sections here are due to the fact that it came out of the dryer in the morning and I left it folded until I took the shots.
I used some of my precious Japanese fabrics that we hand-carried back to Singapore, and also Denyse Schmidt’s lovely prints. It has ‘Lego-like’ bricks, space shuttles, transportation prints and lots of dots, stripes and plaids.
For the back, I pieced the left-over prints from the front with Kona Essex Linen - Solid White. The white linen really showed off the variegated quilting thread that I used on this quilt.
According to the mummy, Luke took this quilt to bed the very night I delivered it to their home.
Wishing you many sweet dreams with this quilt, Luke!
