My mom has always loved Log Cabin quilts. And had I made her one? No. Bad daughter.
And now, guilty no more!! Here is the Floral Log Cabin I recently completed and gave to her for her birthday. I machine-quilted between all the blocks to hold everything together, and then hand-quilted two concentric squares in each Log Cabin block. In two and a half days. (I had a deadline, and, lucky me, only drew blood once.) The border is machine-quilted. As you can tell, I'm no purist when it comes to machine-quilting and hand-quilting; I will use both in the same quilt. It's about 60" by 70".
Next stop: 136 yellow and cream half-square-triangle squares from a long-abandoned quilt project! Stay tuned...
