Welcome back!

DS is coming to the end of his time at the West Yorkshire Playhouse in Leeds, and is moving back to London. He's a bit concerned at the amount of stuff he has accumulated in his flat, and how many car-loads it will take to move him, so has made a small start at getting rid of things he doesn't need for a while. Several boxes of books and files were the first things to come home, and this quilt. (He has others, and even in Leeds, I don't think he'll need them over the next month or so!)

It's obviously a log cabin, and one of the first quilts I made. It's faded a little, but has benefited from a wash (it was quite grubby!) and airing in the garden. I'm happy to welcome it back, as although it's a very basic attempt, and the quilting is very rudimentary, blue and yellow always look so fresh, and this one is still very pleasing.
Even at this early stage in my quiltmaking, I knew that quilts had to be labelled, so here is my attempt.

In case you can't read it, it says 'LMH 1994'. Not very informative, but at least it's there!

I love log cabin quilts and the color combination you used too. Looks great to me.
My son is in the UK on business now and is staying in that area, I believe, if I understood him correctly.

Some of my first quilts were log cabin. I like your blue and yellow version.

It's adorable, very fresh. I love blue and yellow.
At least it has something, my first quilts don't, nor does my latest, but maybe it's name will change.
