So for my sister's 21st birthday, I told her I would make her a quilt from fabric of her choosing. After a failed trip to Joann's and a few hours surfing the internet, she settled on Alexander Henry's Granville line. All she told me as to the design of the quilt was that she didnt want anything *too* traditional and she liked a lot of quilting texture.

So I came up with this.

Semi-inspired by a quilt I saw on Flickr, this is an elongated wonky log cabin, backed with a solid aqua and quilted with *way* to many horizontal wavy lines. I think I figured out somewhere around 150 lines, spaced about 1/4 - 1/2 inch apart. It's a little stiff with that much quilting, but it will soften beautifully.

Its a smallish lap-size quilt, around 40x50 inches. (I prefer larger couch quilts..I like to snuggle.)
