    Finally finished this log cabin quilt top...

    I have had the blocks for this log cabin quilt top finished for a while and finally got busy and got them sewn together a few days ago. I will be machine quilting it, hopefully in the not too distant future. I am going to have a hard time deciding how to quilt it though.

    It is all Civil War Reproduction fabrics...the following photo was taken as the wind blew it. It is a strange angle but love the lighting in it.

    I wish I had a good place to photograph quilts and quilt tops but I don't...and seems like every time I really want to photograph one it is in bright sunlight and the wind is always blowing.

    Not only is it a scrappy but looks like my old time favorite thimbleberry fabric. Good job.

    Great job! I love those fabrics. I can hardly wait to see it quilted. I have the same problem trying to figure out how to do it. So I am more of a top maker than a quilter.

    That is beautiful, just beautiful! I love Civil War reproduction fabrics the very best & this pattern is PERFECT for them. I can't wait to see this quilted. Maybe Baptist fan? Or an overall clam shell pattern? Whatever you decide I know it'll be fabulous! Please post it again when you're done!

    It's a gorgeous quilt! I can understand your dilemma regarding choosing a quilting design. It looks so nice as a top, I am always worried about messing it up with my quilting.

    Pretty Log Cabin. I like the tan based fabrics for the lights.

    Very pretty. The second picture is really cool, it looks like stacked books, and the seams look curved.

    What an awesome quilt. I love it.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    Wow.....great job. I love it. The log cabin is on my bucket list and each time I see one done, it moves up a notch on the list....Hope to see yours when quilting is done.

    I like your quilt. I will be watching to see how you quilt it as I have a queen-size log cabin cut out and ready to start on
