Cabin Fever

Cabin Fever
67 x 83
Since the blocks for this quilt were made while staying in a cabin in the Big Horn Mountains, I decided to name it Cabin Fever.

Previous posts about this quilt can be found here, here, and here.

Cabin Fever was made from a kit I found in the Clearance Room at Sheep Camp Quilts at 50% off several years ago. I paid $33.50 for the complete kit (fabric for the top, the binding, AND the backing). The shop owner was practically giving the kit away at the clearance price: the backing fabric alone would cost over $50 if the yardage was $10 a yard, which many fabrics were at that time.

My points are not perfect, and some pieces don't align perfectly; however, the quilt captures the memories of a Sisters' Sew-in perfectly.

The quilt pattern is free online - Magic Pinwheels by Karen Snyder.

  9. I LOVE finding discount kits. There's something about getting a bargain that really appeals to me. Craftsy used to have a bunch but I've noticed their prices are much higher these days but that's OK because I stocked up :)
