    A different kind of log cabin

    This is a log cabin quilt (in progress) based on a design for a Navaho rug. While I don't think I'll ever make another log cabin quilt by hand, it seemed appropriate at the time, given the inspiration.

    Thanks for taking a look.

    Very pretty and nice color palette. This type of LC design is found in antique as well as contemporary quilts. It is commonly referred to as a Greek Key Log Cabin.

    A lot of quilts are fashioned out of rugs and floors of churches , cathedrals, and gov't buildings. Yours is gorgeous.

    That is truly amazing. You must be a math major to figure out your color placement. Great work.
