Grandpa George's Cabin

I am running out of wall space for any more small quilts so it's time to make some bed quilts. I saw a kit for Grandpa George's Cabin and loved the colors, so when it was on sale I bought it. The quilt pattern is designed by Joyce Weeks for Geoff's Mom Pattern Co. The fabrics are by Diamond Textiles and the quilt size is 82" x 89". Some of the homespuns in the kit were a little dark, so I substituted a few brighter colors from my stash.

I love the look of on point settings but I did find it rather tedious to stitch the blocks into rows and the rows together. So, though it took a while, the top finally got done. Now it is awaiting batting and quilting. Fortunately I have coordinating backing all set to go.
