Pam Buda - Vintage Patchwork September project


Vintage Patchwork (by PamBuda) project #9, “War and Peace”.
 
You may find this hard to believe, but in my 50 plus years of quilting, this is my first log cabin quilt! I have made a few blocks here and there for other projects, but this is the first truly log cabin quilt.

I had fun making this one and I may even make a few more in the future. My friend Cyndi (Busy Thimble) is a true log cabin lover. Her piecing is impeccable. The header quilt on her blog (here) is sensational. I think the logs measure ¼”. She is amazing! 

It's never too late to get Pam's book and give one of these little quilts a try! You can get it on Pam's site (here)

  1. Yes I'm completely surprised you've never done a log cabin quilt. Probably because there's NO appliqué to it! Yours came out great!
    I'm still needing to get my August Pam Buda project done...
    Hope you had a great weekend, Wendy!
    Sending love your way!

  2. I haven't made a log cabin quilt either, but it is on my list of quilts to make! I really like yours.

  3. Seriously? I've never made a full bed-size log cabin quilt (though I have put log cabin blocks in a medallion bed quilt, and made some log cabin minis), but I would never have suspected that of you! LOL
    It is a lovely little finish, Wendy. I am still trying to figure out where you keep those extra hours in your day when you do all this quilting. :)

  4. It is very surprising that you've never done a log cabin quilt before this one. I've only made one in over 40 years of quilting, though I think another one may be on the future schedule.

  5. What a sweet little piece, Wendy! Maybe some day you'll make a larger Log Cabin :)

  6. I love that wee log cabin! Maybe a warm up to a larger one? I dont necessarily love making that pattern, but love a log cabin quilt!!

  7. Sure hope you will be able to make more log cabin quilts - this little treasure is wonderful and your piecing is lovely! Thinking I have made at least 5-6 log cabins along the way with the narrowest logs being 1/2” - Cyndi’s 1/4” is something to behold. One thing I like to do is quilt down the middle of each log - it gives added interest & the impression the logs are narrower. Love Pam’s book too.

  8. Maybe now you've caught the log cabin bug and will make lots more. Cynthia's tiny blocks are amazing. I've been making blocks as a Leader and Ender project. It seems to keep me going around and around!

  9. That's how I felt when I finally made one! It's one I wouldn't mind doing again. Simple yet the combinations and settings are never ending!
