Rather than quilt in the ditch or outline, I decided to hand quilt a meander pattern. In this manner I could stay away from the multiple layers of fabric at the seams. There are a few places on the little quilt that are not real good, but I chalk that up to my own limitations of patience, accuracy, eyesight, age, etc., etc., etc. But I heard a little voice in my head that seemed to say, "getter done". And besides, I do kinda like it.

Small Swap Quilt
Here's a work in progress. A small swap quilt that is about 18" x 18". It started out to be a half log cabin, but because I am a male (an older male at that) I don't read directions. What should have been a half log cabin ended up being a "chevron" block. But I failed to alternate the "logs" using different fabric. But I think it still works.
