I am making this in the potholder method whereby each step has to be quilted and bound before I can add the next border. The center and first border are hand quilted. I work in a marina/boatyard and July is our busiest month so I was so very thankful to Cathy for choosing something that I could do on the machine relatively easily. I took it a step further by simplifying the “log cabin” into simple “logs” along the sides with 4 little log cabin corner blocks.
Since I sort of cheated on the sides, I backed the strips with a “cheater cloth” print. Then I used a vintage cowboy feedsack to back my corner blocks as it had an image of a sweet little cabin on it. Had to get those log cabins in there somewhere!
I used the background fabric from my center for binding to add a little continuity to this jumble!
Katy (Katy Quilts) has chosen “stars” for our next go round. I am really looking forward to seeing what you do with it! I am amazed at all your creativity! Please visit Katy Quilts to view the rules and see all the wonderful work.
I’m still having fun this one and I hope you are too!
I have so much to post about our annual show that ended yesterday, but no time this week to post. Do check out Cyndi's blog (Busy Thimble) as she will be posting too. More to come.
