    While we were on holiday last week, dh and I were browsing round a quilt shop and I spotted this great bag! Lovely man that he is (lol!)...he bought it for me, but I cant seem to find out anywhere what the pattern is called!
    I really should have asked the lady in the shop (she was the one who made it) but I just did'nt think at the time!
    I think it's a pp pattern...and I love it.......so can you help identify it?

    Yep Izy´s got it sussed. We did a similar type at the Group but it was a straight log cabin. Very effective.

    I like this one better though. You lucky lady you. :D

    I have the book 101 Log Cabin Blocks by Linda Clausee which was bought in hobbycraft.
    There are two patterns in there similar to the block on your bag.
    One is Spinning Log Cabin & the other is Toppling Log Cabin.
    I can photocopy both & pop them in the post to you, don't know exactly where you are in South Yorks but I am in Nottingham.
    PM me your address if you want them.

    That's the sort of thing I'd just stare at and never believe I could ever make it. That's outstanding.

    Who thinks these blocks up? I'm amazed.

    That bag is beautiful - love the colors. Do you think it will be hard? Also have the 101 log cabin book - has great designs.

    Yes Sandpat....I have to admit I am rather tempted to try, as I think once you start it will not be as difficult as you think, on the site it gives you a full page print out so you can colour it with your chosen design then it helps you to piece it together....like you said...one day..... :D :D

    I have several projects going right now, so I think it will wait for a little bit. It is 1 that just keeps rearing up its head saying...try me, try me!!! :D
