Le Challenge #18 - Ink

I think that Ink was a tricky one to interpret, but I have gone for a pattern that has been put into print/INK?!? Is that too loose??

Le Challenge
The Log Cabin Wreath Quilt that was in Quilt Now Magazine - Issue 4 by Jessie Fincham.
I love, love, love this quilt and have been itching to finish it, with me literally just sewing in the loose thread this morning!!
I quilted it in an organic (wonky) spiral way, using Kerry's template to start me off.
Most of the fabrics are from my stash with a few dark green purchases, I didn't realise how hard it is to find the perfect green!!!
The backing is a Moda dot with Robins from Makower and the binding is my newest favourite stripy fabric Clown Stripe in Fire by Michael Miller.
I did add a few more strips to the edges making it finish up at 49"x50".
I machine quilted it as there is just not enough hours in the day for it to have been hand quilted by this Christmas, there is no time for film watching on the sofa until Christmas day at the earliest in this house!!!
Now I just need to get more than one decoration on the tree, I'm really not feeling Christmas this year and normally I love it!!
Honestly, two candy canes and a bauble!! I really need to pull my finger out! 


  1. gorgeous quilt! Well done on a fab finish. I love the quilting, it really sets the pattern off. I have problems with green too, I seem to have a lot of green, but every single piece is a different shade! As for the tree, it's minimalist, leave it as it is and just say you're arty!

  2. Looks great! I love the quilting and binding! What a great touches.

  3. Yes pull your baubles out girl!!! hahaha! Hanging decorations on the tree always makes me feel more Christmassy but we don't even have one yet! I LOVE your interpretation (I like those sneaky ones!!), it's clever and plus I love that pattern! The quilt looks beautiful and that binding is so perfect. Well done getting it finished and thanks for linking up to le challenge :)

  4. It looks amazing! I am totally in awe! Thanks for sharing on Le challenge!

  5. I love your wreath quilt! You have three more decorations on your tree than I have on mine...

  6. No wonder you love this quilt - it is gorgeous. And a brilliant interpretation of the theme :-)

  7. Great quilt Joanne! Very smart interpretation of the theme too :) Hope your tree isn't quite so nude now!
