Blogger's Quilt Festival

Welcome to my blog! I have chosen the quilt that I made for my niece's wedding to share in the Home Machine Quilted category for the spring Blogger's Quilt Festival. This quilt is a variation on the traditional log cabin block. The blocks create an off-centered star with a diamond shape framing the star.
The fabrics used are 9 by Sanae and Kona natural. The quilt finished 
at 72" by 84".

I quilted this quilt with concentric circles centered around the offset star. I started with a small circle and echoed the circle varying the widths between 1/2" and 1".

This was my first attempt at quilting concentric circles. I really love how the back shows off the quilting.
I'm happy to say that the new couple loved the quilt! 

Now hop over to Amy's Creative Side to find links to many quilts 
from all over the world.  Thanks to Amy and her countless hours of
dedication to put this together and to the many generous sponsors. 


  1. That's a good-looking quilt. And I still have the desire to try that type of quilting. I've just been so afraid of distortion, but yours doesn't look stretched out at all.

  2. great effect - using the circles on the offset star, and I like that you varied the spacing between the lines - definitely adds interest to an already great quilt! Not surprised they recipients loved it!

  3. Seems like that circular quilting would be really tough on your shoulders and arms, having to move the entire quilt around constantly. You did a fabulous job with this quilt! Love it.

  4. I love the compliment of the circular quilting with the straight lines of the piecing. Absolutely beautiful!

  5. A very interesting layout that I have not seen before!

  6. I love log cabins and I have never seen one made to look like a star before - very cool!

  7. Love this very unique log cabin setting!! Beautiful! Your spiral quilting is amazing and perfect on this quilt :)

  8. I really like the contrast of circular quilting with the straight log-cabin. Sets it off beautifully
