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.
