Completed free-pieced log cabin quilt

Goody, goody, I finally finished binding this quilt.  Just in time to give it to my sister who was visiting for the anniversary.  By the way, the Fiftieth Anniversary was really a beautiful experience!  We had not been all together--me, my husband and all three of our children for a few years.  And my sister and her husband, one of our grandsons and a cousin were able to attend.   It was wonderful, and one of the best days of my entire life.   I've added a couple of photos of places our guests visited.  One is of an ancient myrtle tree that grows in the middle of Monrovia, California.  The other photos are at Laguna Beach.  I visited the library bookstore there and I wouldn't let the man in the store sit down until I had taken a photo of the chair in there.  One of the volunteers had crocheted a chair cover.  Wish I knew her name--what a piece of art!  Back to the quilting, I'm hoping to dive in to making that quilt I started. I think I might make it into a medallion type. Maybe.

I like the dark binding on the liberated log cabin quilt. Is it the same fabric all the way around?

Love the shot of the myrtle tree at the beach too. Thanks for that!

I like the quilt a lot; I'm sure your sister does, too. That's really great that the whole family got the chance to get together. Those are special times.

Congratulations on your 50th anniversary, Roz! Truly a milestone! I waited until age 51 to get married and we're coming up on our 9th. I wish you and your husband many more wonderful years together!
