    So I was reading the log cabin thread and remembered that some time ago before I was really into sewing I saw this AWESOME log cabin book. I didn't buy it because I thought it would be too hard for me, but now I want it!! Of course I have no idea what it is now, so I am taking a chance and hoping maybe someone has a clue what I am talking about. I saw this book at least 5-7 years ago. It was log cabin quilts that were made to look like scenery, the one I remember that I really liked was where it was a rolling hill with log cabin sheep on it. Please please please anyone??? :) :) (That may have even been the cover art one, but maybe not)

    PS my title was supposed to be "Shot in the dark" LOL now it just looks dirty I think!! :) :) :) Sorry .... I type faster than I spell! :)

    P.S.S. - PatriceJ to the rescue. :XD:

    Have you made anything from it yet? Is it pretty good at explaining the whole pattern?

    I have no idea about the book but just had to post because I noticed your name was Rachel. I haven't come across another Rachel in a million years. Even spelled the same way. LoL

    Good luck finding your book!

    Yeah it's funny, it's supposed to be a really popular name, but I only knew maybe one or two growing up, now I work with one! LOL but yeah I usually see it spelled Racheal ... Although when I am at the grocery store I hear a lot of parents saying Rachel to their kids, must be a popular name now. Kind of freaks me out though :)

    Here is a picture of all the patterns in the book at the author's website. Looks pretty impressive!
