    Someone (I can't remember who) asked if I would post pictures of my denim Log Cabins. Since I have never posted pictures . . . we'll see!

    Wow, those are great! Is it difficult do deal with the thickness of the seams when you use denim? How did/will you quilt them?

    I have not found it difficult to sew, as long as your strips are wide enough. I try to use 2 1/2 - 3 inch strips when I am doing these just for that reason. I have not quilted the first one yet, but the 2nd one I did SITD. I think I will do the same thing one the other one also because I do like the way it turned out.

    No, half the log cabin is cotton & the other half is denim. I backed it with purchased denim material.

    I wasn't sure this would work because of the difference in denim and cotton. So I used really cheap material the first time I tried it. I washed the fabric first and then washed the quilt when I was done to make sure it would hold up. It was just fine. If you use all denim you don't have to use batting, but when you add cotton it just makes a better feel. But it is definitely heavy!
