Log cabin quilt

I purchased this as a precut kit about 12 years ago.
I had problems at first putting it together as instead of the usual 1/4 inch seam allowance it had a 5/8 seam allowance.
This was not explained in the instructions and I started to put it together as usual.
Of course, the pieces didn't fit and it was abandoned several times until I took the time to work out the problem.
I finished the top last year and it has been waiting in the queue to be quilted.
This was another done on the new machine.
I had some issues with the monofilament but I think they were mainly caused by the stitch length I was using
I think it was too long.
I have one row that needs to be redone but I think the rest will do.

Congratulations. Amazing how many quilters DON'T have one of their own quilts on their bed. Did HimSelf make your furniture? It is beautiful.

Still laughing about 5/8 seams...

The quilt has now been gifted, so it isn't staying on our bed.
The bed and bedsides tables were made by my Dad. They are crafted from blackwood.
I will do a post soon with photos of the beautiful furniture that he made for us.
