Blogger's Quilt Festival

For Blogger's Quilt Festival, I've decided to tell you about my log cabin quilt. This is the first bed quilt that I have ever made. This quilt actually belongs to my husband, but he'd be hard pressed to find it at any given time, because one of the kids usually snatch it for their bed. It is one of the most well loved, and worn quilts in the house.
If you look closely on the bottom right side of this photo, there is a cut in the fabric. My oldest, who is now 24 decided to "help" me finish it by taking a pair of scissors and cutting it. (He was 3 at the time.) After I scolded him about playing with scissors, (I'll have to tell you the rotary cutter story some other time), I couldn't bear to hide his part in making the quilt, so I left the cut. It has never gotten bigger while being washed or used, so I guess it was meant to be! The binding is so worn, it is practically see through. Amy from Park City Girl is hosting the Blogger's Quilt Festival. There you will find links to many other quilts to be inspired by. Check it out!

What a great history your quilt has! Quilts should be loved until the binding is thin. :-) I think that is a sure sign of a successful quilt.
