Log Cabin Barn Raising

It's Thankful Thursday and today I'm thankful that I've gotten this top pieced, aside from a border. I love the color combos and pattern; I will wait another week to get the border fabric and batting, then the fun will begin.

I also want to make pillow shams to match with the extra squares I've got; since I've never attempted pillow shams before I think I will definitely look for a pattern and not just wing it. I imagine it will take about four months to quilt, maybe less depending on how many hours a night I work on it. I am also thankful for eyesight which allows me to sew and quilt, hands that still work even when stiff and a dear hubby who doesn't mind the expense of the fabric. 
What hobbies do you have that are a passion? 
May your day be blessed,


  1. I wish I had the patience and time to learn how to quilt. It must be so nice to craft something beautiful and useful.

  2. Looks beautiful great job . My hobbie and love and passion is for photography mostly of nature . Thanks for sharing , Have a good day !

  3. Not really a passion but I do a lot of knitting. Never knitted before but we have a neighborhood knitting group and I was encouraged to join even if I didn't knit. So I decided that if I were going to join a knitting group I would certainly learn how to knit. Now it does give me a lot of pleasure and we all love the scarves, hats, shawls, and afghans. So much lovely yarn out there makes it even more fun. And audible books make the time pass quickly.

    I do love your quilting and the sewing projects you do with the grands.

  4. Oh wow, Mom says that is just so beautiful - lots of work there.

  7. Wow, it is beautiful. Your very talented! I'm flat out of passion right now :(
    Hope you have a lovely weekend and Happy Valentine's Day.

  8. Wow Noreen! This quilt is just gorgeous! I admire your sewing abilities! It will be a lot of work quilting it, but so worth it in the end! Someday I may be tempted to take up quilting, but I don't think I'm ready for it quite yet, lol :)
