Scrappy Crazy Log Cabin

This is an impulse quilt. I pieced the blocks freehand but off kilter using scrap fabrics, then used a burgundy fabric I had a lot of for sashing, and added muslin triangles to border it. I always hand quilt.

Hello orville,

I am a new member and saw you made a quilt that I have been trying to find the pattern for.  Champagne quilt you made in 2005. I  know it's a long shot but do you know the name of the pattern or where I can possibly get it? My son really likes the pattern and wants it for a wedding quilt.  Ann

Haven't heard from you in a while, Orville...how are you?

Your quilts are beautiful.  How many have you made total?  Do you only do hand quilting?

I just noticed you asked me about Celebrate Hand Quilting.  Is a facebook page.  N ew and some very accomplished quilters share projects, techniques and favorite tools.  If you join it I know you will love it

I am new at quilting but since I have seen your work it has inspired me to try and perfect the beauty of hand quilting.  So I am currently only practicing on whole cloth. I only wish I had half of your talent.  Your work is stunning, you must be so proud.  I am young and have only just begun.  Thank you for sharing your beautiful work, I will remember you forever.  God bless!

I see you're up early too. My sewing room looks neat, but I DO have another storage closet filled with bins(organized) of batting & larger yardages. Under the cutting table is my portable stash of prints (in bins similar to the ones on rack),. I take those along in the RV winters, along with enough solids taken off the minibolts to get me by for the kid's quilts I do for hospitals.

Just spotted your instructions etc., for your quilts, thanks for showing this, it helps to take some of the mystery away, but none of the awe!!!!!   As always great work.

Best to you both.

I machine quilt most of the small ones.  The bigger bed size quilts I send out to a long arm quilter.  Thanks for the compliments, yours are awesome too!
