What are you most proud of? I was pleased with my fussy-cut applique poinsettia flowers which I embroidered with gold thread to give the quilt a festive touch.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? You can arrange the logs in all sorts of ways, but it's very important to have a strong contrast between dark and light fabrics for the best effect.

Do u have any idea of the piecing details for this?

So sorry to be so long in replying but Craftsy have changed the way they notify me that someone has sent a message - I keep missing all kinds of things now! I obttained the piecing instructions from a book publish by my local quilting shop owner, Karin Hellaby. It's called "Sew Simple Logs" and should be available in your area as Karin teaches all over the world and her books should therefore be available anywhere.It;s published by Quilters Haven Publications and there is a website. This quilt is shown in quite another layout, which is what I set out to copy, but decided on a different layout once all the blocks had been made.

Hi Pat, is there anyway you could send me a pattern for this Christmas log cabin you have made? It is the prettiest I have ever seen and would love to make a Quilt like it. My email address is:

Hello! There's a book, details of which I've given below to tomib, which gives instructions for making all kinds of log cabin quilts. It was my inspiration for this and I was able to get all the fabrics from the shop owned by the author of the book. You don't say where you live, but it should be possible to get a copy of the book fairly easily. It isn't a big or expensive one and gives very clear instructions. I hope you will be able to find it.

Do you have this pattern for sell?

Sorry, I don't, but it is very clearly explained in Karin Hellaby's book "Sew Simple Logs - new ways with a traditional technique" which should be available via the internet. I got my idea from that and played around with the layout a bit to arrive at my eventual design.
