I don't have a good way to hang this quilt flimsy to take a good photo of it, unfortunately, so I'll settle for just laying it out on the bed so you can see the finished border. This is an amazing quilt design and I'm really happy with how it turned out. Most of the print fabrics are an old set of fabrics I bought from JoAnn's in about 1999/2000 that I've been hauling around for way too long so I'm glad I finally made something from them.
The instructions—found in Judy Martin's Log Cabin Quilt Book: Patterns & Possibilities for Lob Cabin & Log Quilts
—are excellent and I had no problem making it. Okay, other than using some of the wrong length strips when I was assembling the border blocks, but that was mostly because I wasn't paying close enough attention to what I was doing and I picked up the wrong pile of pieces.
This is the second quilt I've made out of this book (the first was the Snake River Log Cabin Quilt
) and it was worth every penny I paid for it.
There is still one more design I may make at some point (the Timberline Log Cabin), but now it's time to focus on finishing up my WOOFA 2021 list
. And I have a number of non-quilting projects I need to work on for the rest of the summer.

Well done. Nice to be able to use up some of your stash.ReplyDelete
Yeah, I am much happier about hanging onto this fabric set for all these years. I've been staring at that pile for ages trying to come up with a pattern that would look good with all those different prints and just couldn't come up with a plan I liked. Until I found this pattern.Delete
Beautiful quilt! I have that book and have made 1 quilt from it so far, I've love to make several more too. Happy stitching!ReplyDelete
Which quilt did you make? Are photos posted? I'd love to see how yours turned out.Delete
Wow! Fabulous. I love the purple and green. Great job.ReplyDelete
Thank you. They are mine and my husband's favorite colors.Delete
Wow is right!!! This is an heirloom!!!ReplyDelete
Thank you. I hope so.Delete
Absolutely stunning!! I am glad you hauled those fabrics around for a while - they are perfect for this!ReplyDelete
Thanks Alycia. I'm definitely feeling less guilty for moving them so many times. Since I just found Judy's book last year, it was obvious they were waiting for that. =)Delete
This is stunning, Sharon! I would never have guessed your fabrics were that old, because everything about the color palette and the design feels so fresh and current. Beautiful pattern, excellent fabric picks and workmanship. I have to get my hands on a copy of this book now!ReplyDelete
I'm a real fan of Judy's book. I do wish the quilt designs had more standard names though.Delete
Thanks Angela. Thanks for dropping by.Delete
Beautiful. Love your border so much. A few years ago I made a Burgoyne Surrunded quilt and I have another on my list of to-do's but have been putting it off because I just couldn't come up with a create border. Thank you for the inpiration, I have an idea now. Thank you for linking up to Put your foot down.ReplyDelete
