I always enjoy playing with the Log Cabin pattern in new ways.
Just by rotating the square, a whole new pattern emerges. It’s more complicated than that and this one was a good challenge.
This quilt was a custom order. I worked with the buyer to pick out a color scheme they wanted.
I used really bright colors to make this quilt. This variation on the Log Cabin makes the quilt look like it was made from horizontal stripes, when in fact the pattern is built from sections around a black square.
Dimensions: 94″ x 94″
I liked making this quilt because it is a composite of individual fabrics each with its own unique pattern, texture, and color. I made this because I made one for myself 20-years ago and it never feels old.
Dimensions: 84″ x 94″ (queen)
Quilting: Long-Arm Gamill Machine Quilted.
I’ve always wanted to try the Churn-Dish pattern because it is such an old classic pattern. I specifically choose Civil War reproduction fabrics.

Here is a new log cabin quilt I made from navy and cream colors – a true classic for me.

I’ve been working on a new shirt quilt. This time I am incorporating more solid colors and working with thinner strips. It’s easy to make when I have all the raw materials quick at hand. I have been collecting old shirts from thrift stores for over a year now.
