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.
