    Interesting Log Cabin

    I saw this design on ebay.
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/-ROW-HOUSES-LOG-CABIN-BLOCK-VINTAGE-QUILT-PATTERN-/251277103042

    What an interesting log cabin design!

    Each square in 4.5 inch. I reckon the strips are 1/2 inch wide!

    I wonder how much the fabric and time would cost? You can purchase it right now for $5.99. Or have fun bidding. I am not real gung-ho on log cabins.

    I did too! Love this pattern and it reminds me of my where my husband grew up in England with all the row houses.

    I noticed that the E-bay listing says "This auction is for an original quilt pattern only, carefully taken from a vintage craft book " So be aware that these are pages removed from a book ... not an actual pattern.

    If you want the full size pattern plus some others, you can also buy the book here.

    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I actually made this quilt and it was just time consuming not really difficult. And you can get the pattern for free on Flavin Glover's website. It's actually for a wall hanging size or you can just make more blocks. FYI if you make the quilt, just keep your pieces labeled and sorted and pay attention to where they go.

    Flavin lives in Alabama and is a wonderful teacher. If you're in a guild and are looking for a teacher for a class or program she is great!!!

    It's a shame the ebay seller didn't at least credit the designer of that quilt. Flavin Glover visited our guild last year and brought that quilt and many others. Great work!

    I'm not crazy about houses on quilts. I do love log cabin quilts.
