String bean log cabin quilt finished

I started this quilt in March when Pat Sloan offered a free pattern and a challenge.
You can find the pattern on Craftsy.
I used bobbins and bits fabrics plus others.  I used my walking foot for straight and wavy lines. On my Bernina it is #4stitch and 2 width and 2 length.
I hand quilted the centers of each block using Aurifil #12 matching thread and fabric with finishing set tart and macaroon from Fat Quarter Shop online.

    1. It is called serpentine stitch and you can do a search for it for your machine.

  2. What a pretty pretty quilt! I love your fabric choice! I also love your wavy line quilting... I will have to try that! I too, have a Bernina - my 2nd one, my first one died after 25 years, so a couple of years ago I bought my new one. Its a bit over-whelming, but it is suppose to do many things :)

    1. I had a lot of Pat's fabric and decided to use it because this was her pattern. And I had some other fabrics that blended..lucky me!

  5. I have the pattern printed out. That is it. No further progress here. I love your colors. The quilting is perfect. I need to try that wavy line, I think my machine has it. (?)
    Thanks for sharing
