FO Friday: Amy Butler and Wonderland Wonky Log Cabin Quilt
It only took me a decade, but I finally finished my Amy Butler / Wonderland wonky log cabin quilt. Originally I had big plans to make this into a queen-sized quilt. But then I ran out of fabric and downsized to a twin-sized quilt. And then I decided not to sew a giant backing piece and downsized it yet again to a baby quilt, which is what you see. (And it’s being gifted to an actual baby as soon as I get to the post office!)
I blogged about this project several times before (and even claimed I would finish it previously!).

Quilting is expensive…
Getting my patchwork quilted (and binding it!) is what holds me back from finishing all of my unfinished quilt tops. I don’t have a machine that allows me to do the quilting part myself very easily, so I have to hire it out. I’ve been waiting until I have somebody in mind to give the finished quilt before getting it quilted. I used Whitetail Quilting in Fridley, MN again for this project. I love working with them because it’s a husband and wife team and they are really sweet to work with. Plus, their pricing is really great! We did an all-over butterfly pattern that went with the polka dots.
Here is the finished piece.
And true to my blog’s roots: here are phone photos instead of photos taken with my nice camera. This time I have an excuse, though—I can’t find the battery recharging cord! I may have to snag one from Amazon, although it pains me to do so because I have one place I keep electric cords outside of their “homes” and it’s not there. Ugh!
