Pink Log Cabin

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I've learned to be very precise in my piecing -- every little variation has a big effect on the outcome, and this quilt turned out nearly perfect. But I'm most proud of the quilting I did on this project. This is the first biggish quilt I've done with lots of free motion quilting (I used to settle for stitching in the ditch and adding a few squiggly lines here and there). I must say, this quilt is really gorgeous! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be very precise about your 1/4" seams and trimming and pressing after each round of "logs." It's possible to skip these things, but your finished product will probably be messy and disappointing.

What you will need

  • cotton fabric
  • polyester batting
  • trilobal polyester thread for quilting

Q&A with KChristine

Beautiful! Just make another one.
KChristine answered:
I did make another one! see my Yellow Brick Road quilt, which is the one I'm giving to the baby, born on the first day of spring!
troll asked:
I do not usually like pink unless it is for my granddaughter. This is beautiful. Is this a log cabin design? Would like to see the whole quilt.
KChristine answered:
this is an uneven log cabin design, which is taught in one of the 2013 block of the month classes. I added an extra row of "logs". I made 2 of these quilts and posted a photo of the whole quilt for the other one I made. look under my projects for the Yellow Brick Road quilt, and you can see it there. very very easy to make - just use wider strips on one side of the block and narrower ones on the other. see those BOM classes for details
