    Hi,

    It is a beautiful quilt. I might even attempt to make it. Log cabins are so easy and a good way to use up left over strips etc.
    It doesn't look complicated. It appears to be log cabin blocks with six rows of colored fabrics set on point and put together with white sashing. The smaller blocks are only three rows of color and then white cut in half to made the set in triangles. The size would be determined either by the number of blocks or the width of the strips used to make the blocks.

    What a beautiful quilt with the log cabins set on point. Why not make a second quilt by measuring the one you already have?

    What a magnificent quilt! I would love the pattern as well please.
    I will be making a biography quilt for my daughter and she wants the fabrics to be in the log cabin blocks. Each fabric represents something about her life. So far I have over 80 fabrics! I keep looking for a way to do and THIS IS IT!!!!! The white in between allows everything to POP so beautifully. Did you do it? I am very impressed and now, I can't wait to start. Please let me know about the pattern so I can begin. WOW!! WOW!!!WOW!!! Thanks, Phyl :!:

    I hope this doesn't sound selfish but I too would love that pattern. I would like to do a log cabin, its on my to do list. Have some blocks that I have made from PPing that are log cabin, so I know I am hooked. Thanks a lot everyone that is doing a search for this one. I have very little imagination, so have to use other peoples ideas. Thanks.

    While this quilt looks fabulous, the pattern appears to be fairly simple. It looks to be standard log cabin blocks placed on point, with a white sashing strip between them. Then at the bottom and presumably the sides and top also, there is a 1/2 log cabin block on point to make up part of the white setting triangles. I can't see the sides and top in the picture to be certain. But that's what it looks like to me.

    Yes, it does look fairly simple. Having the pattern would give you the preparation you would need to cut the pieces though. Since it doesn't look as if anyone can find the pattern yet, I counted the strips and starting with the first little box and continuing counting to the end of the "cabin", there are 19 pieces. (I THINK. I am looking at the picture and am trying to count correctly.) The smaller cabin looks as if it has 10 pieces. I would guess the exact size of each strip is up to the quilter...wider,larger.....thinner, smaller. It starts with a small dark, a small light, a light strip, then the usual two darks, two lights. PLEASE don't take my word for it! Try to count it out and if you try it, I hope it works. I think I will try it after I do the two quilts I am currently working on. Thanks for reminding me it is basic. It should be a terriffic project and I will try it...later!!!!LOL!!! :lol:

    Closer invesitgation of the picture indicates the following:

    1. 1.5" finished size squares for the log cabin centers.
    2. 1.5" finished size strips around the log cabin.
    3. The strips were applied in a counter-clockwise fashion.
    4. 5 strips per side x 4 sides + center = 21 pieces per log cabin.
    5. 2 strips per side x 4 sides + center = 9 pieces per 1/2 log cabin.
    6. 5 lighter colored and 5 darker color fabrics are used for each block.
    7. The same darker colored fabric was used for all the centers.
    8. White sashing is 1.5" finished size also.

    Using the Eleanor Burns Quilt in a Day method of piecing log cabin blocks:
    1. Cut all strips 2" wide. Will yield 1.5" finished size.
    2. Cut the center 2" long from a 2" strip Will yield 1.5" finished size.
    3. Strips 1 & 2 = lighter colored fabric #1.
    Strips 3 & 4 = darker colored fabric #1.
    Strips 5 & 6 = lighter colored fabric #2.
    Strips 7 & 8 = darker colored fabric #2.
    Strips 9 & 10= lighter colored fabric #3.
    Strips 11 & 12 = darker colored fabric #3.
    Strips 13 & 14 = lighter colored fabric #4.
    Strips 15 & 16 = darker colored fabric #4.
    Strips 17 & 18 = lighter colored fabric #5.
    Strips 19 & 20 = darker colored fabric #5.
    4. Sew the first strip to the center. Cut off the strip to match the center's length.
    5. Turn counter-clockwise and sew on the second strip. Cut off the strip to match the length of the center + the first strip.
    6. Continue in a counter-clockwise manner, untill all 20 strips have been applied to the block.
    7. For the smaller 1/2 log cabin blocks, do the above using only 8 strips around the center.

    I hope this helps.
