    log cabin: barn raising set

    hi!

    long before i ever knew how to sew i loved log cabin quilts.

    so finally after 20 years of sewing and quilting i attacked the hoard and made the quilt i had dreamed about. it is full of fabrics from my life and my daughter's life: dresses, other quilts made for ourselves and others, fabric purchased at places that in retrospect marked times in my life, and two bought just for this project (the borders).

    i am pleased with it, maybe more so with any other i have made. it is completed quilt number 8, and a treasure.

    What an awesome quilt -- and I love the jammies on the back. Your quilt is beautiful, and the memories it will bring back through the years will make you very happy!!

    What a fun quilt! Scrappy log cabins are the best! Cute fabric piece of the little kids all in a row!
    Be a blessing to others, as you may entertain angels unaware!

    Love it! I agree with you that log cabin quilts are the best. Yours has the advantage of being made with fabric that has meaning for you and your daughter--what a family heirloom! In that close up picture, I see a fabric that I have, too! What a great way to save pieces of those fabrics for yourself. I may have to put this idea on my to-do list. Beautiful job.
