Log Cabin Quilt

My favorite quilt pattern is the Log Cabin.  I have probably made about 10 quilts using this pattern.
I finished this quilt about 10 years ago.  I wanted to make something soft and sweet looking, so I chose pale pink, pale green and cream fabrics.  Don't you just want to curl up in it and read a good book?
When I first started quilting, I would machine piece the blocks then hand quilt the tops.  Hand quilting is so rewarding, it really shows the love you have put into your quilt.  Now, I don't seem to have the time and I machine stitch the tops or have had them done professionally.  I really like working on small art quilts, I can hand stitch to my heart's content.

  1. Hi Ellen! I saw that you signed up as a follower on my blog, so I jumped over to yours and have been thoroughly immersed in the colors and San Diego lifestyle. Love it. My brother lives in Solana Beach, so I get out there about once a year. Wish I lived there so I could take Jane LaFazio's workshops like you have.
