Thanks. It looks really good. I'm working on a disappearing 9 patch this afternoon. I'm going to try doing it that way but I may try a row at a time. I machine quilt so I think I can handle one row. It's just really bulky trying to do the whole quilt on the machine. I'll do a post when it's done to show everyone how it turns out (unless it's really ugly, then I'll keep it to myself, ha ha).

Thanks for taking the time to post your pictures and for your help!

The second log cabin I did on the machine making each block directly onto batting and backing then machining the top edges RST and hand stitching the back. this goes really fast and no quilting at all as you are quilting as you piece. Also as you use squares of batting the size of the blocks, you can use up all your offcuts! The LC was about the fastest quilt I made, about an afternoon's work. Now the cat sleeps on it! :D

oh I love them both!! love the pattern you used to put the log cabin one together. They are both beautiful. I haven't seen QAUG put together without sashing around each square on the front side of quilt.
As soon as I can get it through my thick head I am going to try it :P

I've had these 2 sites bookmarked but have never tried it. It looks easy enough to do and I do have plans to try it on a quilt I have in my line up of quilts to make.

Would love to see it when it's done.

Can anyone post a picture of the back of the quilt? The fronts look beautiful, but the back is what I'd like to see :D
