Mon Ami and Fish Creek Cabin

My Le Petite project Mon Ami is now completed! It's been quilted, bathed in tea, rinsed and dried for an old crinkle feel. As you see I did not add the borders and I love it!

My Mon Ami will be a perfect basket stuffing sort of quilt.

I've been wanting to quilt a log cabin motif so I pulled out this top called Fish Creek Cabin and started custom quilting it today. I'm not finished and have a way to go but thought I'd share a peek.
Marcie at Patchalot Patterns is the designer of Fish Creek Cabin and many more wonderful patterns that you can find at her website and don't miss her blog to see her new pattern called Stitchin' Time.

I like that you gave it a bath in dirty water! And if you ever get the itch to quilt another log cabin, let me know!

Love how you did your quilt, very prim.
I used to tea stain, but now I just use it in the house and it gets stained fast enough, lol.

I love the quilting in the log cabin blocks! Beautiful! How did you give the quilt a bath in tea? I've never done that. How about much water, how many tea bag, etc. It looks great!

Carol said...

Your Mon Ami quilt turned out so nice, it looks great in the basket. I guess I better get with it and finish mine. I love how you did the quilting on the Fish Creek Cabin quilt. That quilt is on my list to do sometime.

Kaaren said...

Love the custom quilting, Mary. Fans are my favorite.

You must tell us how you bathe your quilts in tea. I wash and dry mine but haven't invited them to tea yet...cuz I don't know how!

Vivian said...

Both quilts are lovely, as we'd expect with your wonderful quilting. The quilting on the log cabin blocks is unique. I like the leaves on one side and the feathers on the other. Just beautiful!

Cindy said...

Love it, Mary. The "scrunchy", "used", tea dyed", basket" kind of quilt is what makes it beautiful.

Quilt Rat said...

Mary said...

Both quilts are beautiful. Just the right quilting on each!

Mary, I just stopped in to say hello. Between viral throat infections and the remodeling I'm just not doing too much communication right now. I love your new quilt and it is absolutely delightful with now borders. Love that crinkly look. I'm thinking in about 3 weeks my house will be back together and I can finally get to my sewing room. Keep your fingers crossed. Hugs...
