"52 Weeks" is the new title of my blog of resolutions! When I started this blog it was "52 Quilts", started in 2011 when I decided to make 52 quilts before New Year's Day of 2012. I achieved that goal, and have made a habit of making big New Year's Resolutions. These goals are designed to make me better at a skill, make me a better person, or cross something off my "bucket list". These are my stories about getting there (or failing to get there ;) ).

Quilt #34 - A Musical Log Cabin
So... a few weeks ago while JoAnn's was having a sale, I bought a few fat quarter bundles, and one of them was this teal and brown mix. I knew I could do a small log cabin, and when I was looking through my fabric stash I thought that the small amount of black and gold treble clef fabric would be just the thing for my neutral fabric. I had no idea that it would be such a BUSY MESS! AHHH! Despite the dizzying busy insanity.... I really like how it turned out. It's almost impressionist. And it's very dark. Again, I backed this one in fleece without any batting. This is my favorite new method for finishing a quilt. It's fast, it sews beautifully, it's a little bit grippy so it's easy to quilt, and it's a very snuggly result. This quilt is very small. I'd say that it's a bit smaller than crib size. It's a nice deocrative throw...
