Christmas Log Cabin


Recommended Posts

This is a cute paper-pieced Log Cabin with houses and a Christmas tree. My customer plans to embellish it with ornaments, some embroidery, and a bit of bling. The logs are 1/2 inch wide. It was fun to quilt with SID and open, scrolly quilting.  BottomLine gold thread and Essence invisible thread on top, BL bobbins, and W&W batting.

Thanks for looking---arrow right at Flickr for one detail pic.

I love this quilt and actually made one myself a few years ago!  I see the piecer of this one had a bit of a problem in her outer borders, the centers of each border. I did, too! Must have been the instructions and not just me. I love What you did with the quilting on your customer's!

 

You're right, Bonnie. The border strips needed one more log at the inside to finish the tiny blue squares so they would come out even. Unfortunately, that would have made the border too wide for the border corner blocks to fit. Otherwise, she could have lengthened the logs, but she'd pieced all the border sections before she realized the error. Instead of re-drafting the corner squares, my friend was so sick of of working on it, she left it as it was. 

 

Thanks for the kind comments! :)
