100% cotton fabrics and 100% cotton batting. I used Sulky variegated 30 wt long staple matte finish cotton thread front and back for the free motion embroidery work.
What was your inspiration?
A gift for a man who loves dogs. He also loves black anything. So what better than to incorporate black, white and a touch of deep red blending fabric to give that 'manly' appearance to the quilt.
What are you most proud of?
Upon close inspection, the overlying theme is dogs, in the backing which is also used to some degree in the front of the quilt, and the paw print black and white sprinkled throughout.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Take a good look at the many ways a log cabin quilt pattern can be used to fulfill any theme you wish. As well as it being able to be 'manly' enough to appeal to a man or feminine enough, depending on fabric choices and layout. The Log Cabin pattern is classic, ammendable to almost any need.
