    First Log Cabin quilt finished

    I started this project on Friday afternoon and just finished it. This is the first log cabin pattern I have made and I did the entire thing with scrap fabric. The closest fabric store is 100 miles away so I had to make due with what I had. I'm very pleased with it, however! I used a walking foot for the first time on this quilt. My husband liked the fabrics and the pattern so much he wants me to make a kig sized quilt. Yeah right. Can you imagine how many 1 inch strips would be needed?

    beautiful...but if you made two inch strips it would take only half as long!

    I tried to tell him that, but he really likes the small strips. When I do a larger quilt, I will use wider strips! It was a pain working with 1 inch strips!

    The fabrics do work together sooooooooooooo nicely. Now for your husband, why not go up to 2" strips, you will be amazed how quickly they will go.

    Very nice and love the colors! When you get ready to make the other one enlist his help in cutting the strips.

    Nice work!
    I like your colors and yes, 1-inch strips are a pain. So can you show us what these scraps came from? I like your fabrics and would like to see what else you made with them.

    Oh, that's so lovely. I keep saying I'm going to make a log cabin, but haven't committed to it as it looks like sooooo much work!
