Quick tell me what’s your favorite quilt block? You know your go to block when you need to make something fast. Is it a star block, four patch or nine patch or maybe like me you like the log cabin.
I made my first log cabin quilt from the scraps of my previous quilts back in 1996. Since I love scraps it really was a perfect choice. The fact that I only had to separate my fabrics into piles of lights and darks was such an advantage to me as I still wasn’t quite sure what I was doing with this quilting thing. I didn’t make my first quilt until 1994, so quilting was still fairly new to me.
That first quilt (pictured above) was full of fabrics which I consider to be dull and boring now. But they were the only choices I had and at the time I thought the were wonderful. Since making that first quilt my log cabins have definitely changed. Now not only am I choosing bolder and brighter fabrics but I’m also making log cabins in all their variations. It’s such a versatile block!
I’m really sure my love of log cabins is what has led me to my love of all things string! More about that next week………..
