Civil War Log Cabin Quilt

I like to promote my fellow Guild members and their work. VABeachQuilter is a wonderful lady and a talented, master quilter. I found this gorgeous quilt in her Destash Sale collection where it's on sale.

The entire quilt was made with Civil War Reproduction fabrics. There are 880+ 1" "logs" in this quilt. The quilt measures 67" x 67" and has been prewashed to remove any shrinkage.

The Log Cabin blocks are laid out in the pattern called "Dirty Windows". The quilt was professionally quilted by a local, award winning, long-armer.

If you'd like this quilt but in different fabrics, contact VABeachQuilter at the address below. Due to the nature of this quilt, allow up to 12 weeks for it to be finished and quilted by the long-armer.

Happy Hanukkah!

I recently sold a Hanukkah gift. It's the Love Your Friends Reversible Unisex Necklace. There's still time to get yours for the celebration!

Love Your Friends Reversible Unisex Necklace

This necklace is a double-sided, reversible, polished pewter donut pendant. Engraved on the front is the lovely statement "love your friends like you love yourself" in Hebrew. A simple flower and vines are engraved along the bottom.

The back of this necklace has a very beautiful, satin polished finish with engraved vines wrapped around the bottom.

The pendant alone is unisex in style. I can substitute a leather cord for the chain, if you desire. The pendant is approx. 1-1/8 inch round, and hangs on a 20 inch sterling silver chain.
