The very first quilt I made way back in 1996 was this log cabin quilt as a wedding gift for dear friends of ours.
Please don't be too critical...hair, glasses, blouse...yikes!
Then in 2002, I made Court House Steps, a variation of the traditional log cabin block.
Both pictures taken before digital cameras. Colors so much better in real life!
So this week I felt like it was time to go back to the basic log cabin with a more modern twist! I have been working on these blocks.
I cut the solid Kona bone logs, 2 1/2" wide and the colored logs, 3 1/2" wide and then arranged them until I was happy with this...
This is now a flimsy on my design wall which accounts for the poor lighting. The 'star' is laid out a little off center. I love how visually it gives you the feeling that it just keeps going. I will leave it without a border. Now to find a backing...
This week has been pack with tragic events...Boston, Texas, and my own community with flooding.
In light of all these events, I leave you with this verse...
"My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness."
2 Corinthians 12:9
