Sue's half moon modern log cabin...

Look at this amazing quilt from Sue daurio! The quiting is awesome! Sue has tons of finishes, 2011 here, 2010 here, 2012 here...WOW. I think love the colors in this quilt, almost rainbow, and then the quilting reminds me of rainbows. Anyhow, LOVE this quilt...

I learned how to do Baptist fans!!  I have a rainbow quilt for a good friend of mines daughter that I wanted to quilt rainbows on, this quilt was practice for that.  This will be one of my Hands 2 Help quilts.  I've also posted the Eq7 project on the projects tab.  But really you don't need E7 for this.  All you need is a jelly row and some other coordinating fabric.  I started with a 2.5 x 10.5 in strip.  Added 1.5 inch strips all the way around.  Then 2.5 inch strips all the way around, then 1.5, then 2.5....until you are happy with the size.  Easy as can be!!

Oops my slipper is in the picture...really I left that in the middle of the floor?  Yikes don't tell my husband :)

This is my first quilt finished for H2H - check out the button on the side bar, it's not too late to join in.

Very bright and cheerful quilt, I think this would make an awesome pattern for a baby quilt.
I'm sure the recipient will be thrilled.
