Log Cabin Update

I'm so far behind on blog posts I barely know where to begin. Suffice it to say, I've been sewing like a mad woman these last few weeks.  I have a million things to show and tell, but this post is dedicated to the most important thing - Log Cabins For Japan!

I have another stack of blocks that I'll be piecing into a baby quilt today. Despite the fact that it's May 1st, it's a miserable 33 degrees and overcast here in Minnesota today. Dreadful weather for Minneapolis' annual May Day parade, but great weather for quilting!

The current quilt count is seven, but I'll have eight by the end of the day. This week I'll be shipping them off to Mission of Love. The original plan was to send the quilts to Quilters Newsletter (to then be shipped to Japan), however, I was unable to meet their April 30th deadline. I'm so glad another organization is still collecting quilts! If you have an extra quilt in your stash, please consider making a donation. Mission of Love's deadline to receive quilts is May 7th.

Best wishes,


  1. awesome Annik. I so wished I'd made time to contribute :(

  2. Thanks, Vickie. I know you are very busy. Next time!

  3. Yay! I see all four of mine in the same quilt. They look gorgeous, and I hope they're keeping someone warm and happy.
