    Donna's Ancestor's Antique Log Cabin Variation

    Here is a tutorial for the very interesting log cabin quilt seen in Donna's post My Ancestors

    Read the topic to see the vintage photo of her ancestors and their quilt.

    Is there a reason that the red was all cut into squares then joined to the green, then cut apart? Wouldn't it be easier to just piece the red and green together then cut apart? Am I missing something?
    Keep away from people who belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you too can become great. Mark Twain

    I love log cabins, this is a very nice layout, i am getting fabric together to try and start one for me, i love reds so trying to get a lot together to use in mine, i found a new fabric called "Friendship" that is mostly reds, so now i am working on color combinations, which is hard for me, i keep changing my mind.
    Thank you so much for sharing

    Absolutely right, LOL!! That's what comes of drawing patterns at midnight, sigh.
    Thank you for catching that, Pepita.

    Pojo, This one was written in Microsoft Word 2003; is it possible you don't have MS Office, MSWord, or other similar programs on your computer? Wish I were skilled enough to help you.
