    DH s log cabin

    I started this quilt in november 2011 and i am now fixing to put the borders on there will be 5 borders in graduating widths from 2.5 to 6.5. picture one is the original planned quilt (to be a suprise for Christmas 11) then I got so tired of do it the way I was taught I got some one else to show me another way and have finished the inside. the border will be mitered ( I hope) I have my strips cut and ready to stitch together. this was all a first for me. After I missed the Christmas deadline I finished the squares and told him what I had in mind and told him if he wanted to do another design have at it. the second pic is the design he made. and the third one is of the borders I am using,

    It's going to be wonderful! I think I would save the red for the binding for that little pop of colour at the edge. It will be great when finished no matter what you decide to do.

    the blue pattern is messy looking to me. Love the way the red one is set together.

    The fabric is called Mr. Fix-it RJR fabrics Dan morris designer. the design is a Keith (DH) original and the final binding will be the same red as is the first strip of border. Thanks for the comments and the design in the first pic is from a book dated in 1992 called Traditional Quiltworks' 3rd annual Christmas Special .

    Who knew narrow little strips could be sewn together to make so many interesting quilts? The first one really catches my eye.

    I need to get that fabric for my DH. He was a building trades teacher before admin so he can do it all especially carpentry. Your husband's original design reminds me of wood grain patterns or marble. Great quilt!!! You did a good job!

    Beautiful, I really like the red one. Log cabins are very work intensive. I am making one out of scraps, will be glad to get it done.

    Well, he sure picked a unique pattern for the log cabin block! I like your border ideas and I'm sure he'll love the finished quilt. Be sure to share the completed project with us. Thanks for sharing.

    I love the way your DH made the design his own - it has a lot of movement and spunk. I'm sure he will love it and you will always remember how it was a collaboration between the two of you, a great symbol of your partnership!
