Barbara put her beautiful blue and yellow log cabin quilt together. Her blocks were made using 2.5 inch strips. Blue and yellow are my two favorite colors, so I especially liked this quilt!
I had all of my log cabin blocks sewn and was determined to get the top put together over the weekend. The pattern is from a Jennifer Chiaverini book. This is the Underground Railroad quilt--I believe the book is called "The Runaway Quilt." Notice the black centers--they indicated the house was a stop on the Underground Railroad. I'm not sure about the history of that, but it makes for a beautiful quilt, doesn't it?! I started with 1.5 inch strips. There are 144 blocks, set 12 x 12. I can't wait to get this one quilted!
And the quilt above is Ann's version of the new Bonnie Hunter quilt "Easy Street." She toned down the colorway a bit by using all the same black-dotted fabric for the background, and she limited her greens to a few fabrics.
Here's a closeup of the block. I like it, Ann, good job!
I started two other projects...sometimes I just get into the mood to cut and sew! I found a cute baby quilt called "Baby Blues" and I'm working on setting those blocks together. And I'm working on another scrap quilt with 5 inch squares--cut from 1.5 inch squares. It's good and scrappy. So maybe I've made you curious?! Come back tomorrow and I'll snap a photo from my design wall.
till next time, keep stitchin!
