Adventures in Fabric Art

Log Cabin Finish


img_2811These aren’t traditional log cabin blocks.  The centers are large, and there are only two “logs” on each side.  They are only 7.5 inches square, and there are fifty-four of them.  The quilt came out 42″ by 63″, but that was before it was washed.  I didn’t piece these to a foundation, just started adding to the center squares.  That made it much easier to chain piece them.

img_2814The colors are inspired by both Spring, and the backing fabric.

img_2813I quilted this with Sulky white and Superior Living Colors pink thread.  The bottom thread is Bottom Line.  The batting is Warm and Plush.

  1. Beautiful! I love the quilting. So glad it’s going to A Mother’s Hope!

  2. Gorgeous quilt Valerie! That backing fabric is beautiful, and I’m not surprised it inspired you to use the colors from it. It’s so much easier to make the blocks when the center is larger, isn’t it? I love larger blocks.

  3. A wonderful quilt, Valerie! I love that modified log cabin.
