Log Cabin Quilt

December 31, 2010

Log Cabin Quilt

In 1997 while pregnant with Oliver I took beginning quilt classes with my aunt.
It was the first time I purchased fabric and my first time using a sewing machine.
Of course I fell in love with fabric and the possibilities of creation.
I had long admired and dreamed for an armoire filled with lovey, time worn quilts.
Over the years I've hand quilted a dozen plus quilts and have enjoyed it very much.

I haven't hand quilted for several years now and I don't think I will as I'm about to pick up knitting needles for the first time.
(My sweet family has treated me to lessons this year.
There is a cute antique/yarn store a mile from my home where an older lady teaches private lessons for $20 an hour.)
In my basement there are four pieced and pinned quilts ready for quilting.
I won't be hand quilting them ever so I've decided to simply tie, bind and use them.



This log cabin quilt has been stored for seven years.
It has 64 squares and a very piecey border.
It measure 108" x 126.
It's ginormously huge and warm.
I loved making it.












I love it on my bed even more.
Best wishes and love this New Year.

  2. Saganaga, it's true although I started hand sewing (plastic canvas, embroidery ,cross stitch) at age six.
    Taught by my Grandma Billie of course!
