    I have been collecting homespuns all winter and fall. I saw the most GORGEOUS log cabin quilt made with all colors of homespuns. It was beautiful! If I can find the picture I saved somewhere, I'll come back and post it for you.

    Oh, I love these!! You look just like a friend of mine. You could pass for doubles. I especially like the bird one.

Funny you would say that just this morning I was looking for orange plaids and homespun for a quilt on the cover of a mag. Better homes and Garden American Patchwork and Quilting Oct 2008.
    This is nice. I think I might have some orange plaid. I'll have to check out this pattern. thanks for sharing.

    I was looking at this one closely. I also like how the centers are different colors, but I believe I would try to space the colors out evenly. I'm a perfectionist about things like that; somewhat obsessive-compulsive, I guess. I sure do like this tho..isn't it homey looking??? If I make one, I just might have to buy a log cabin to go with it!!!

    It looks like one that I'd like to just crawl up in and curl up in front of a roaring fire in the fireplace and sip on some hot chocolate! Beautiful and homey looking. And, I really like the way the cross-hatching gives it another dimentional look. It is definately on my to do list.

    I just posted what I think is a quilt of homespun fabrics and they are all plaids, of sorts.
    Check out "a small quilt finished," posted by me earlier this evening.
    It was my design but hardly a design at all.
    Feel free to copy and revise to suit you as much as you like!

    I never thought to use homespuns but I think now I may reconsider.

    I am so happy I read this thread, I love Homespun but wasn't sure what to do with it since I don't like rag quilts. You all have inspired me!!! Thanks so much!!
