    Can you imagine he does a wonderful job...been at it for 3 or 4 years now and he just loves it...So when he retires he is all set...he has a Longarm Gammil... My Mom quilts too and she keeps him busy and he has had a lot of practice....I try to keep him in quilts as does my Mom...

    Thanks on the compliment...log cabin is my least favorite block to do...just don't care for it at all....but loved this look... :D

    Really pretty!
    After you send it to the quilters, you can just send it here.
    It looks like it needs a vacation! ;)

    oh I can't believe you don'y like log cabins! I just love them because they go together quickly and are so versatile. if you did that good on one you don't like I can't imagine what you could do with one you do! I just love it and can't wait to see what your dad does with it.

    I love your log cabin, but I don't do them. I do a couple blocks and they look wonky, so they make nice pot holders :D

    I love that star! What a great way to get a star quilt without making a star. I personally love it, and while I've got a quilt sized "star" planned into one of my upcomming projects it's not a long cabin. Very nice layout and colors! :D

    I LOVE log cabins! What makes you not like them? I love the sort of snail trail block mixed in. Just a wow factor going on here! Please show us the quilting when you get it back.

    Does you dad need more quilt tops to work on? If he ever gets bored, let me know. :wink:

    Your quilt is beautiful!! :thumbup: :thumbup:
    I love log cabin quilts. What is it that you don't like about them? My daughter likes how they look, but finds them very boring to make. I think they go together so quickly that you don't have time to get bored. :D :D

    Ahh suks... :oops: I just can't take all these compliments.. :D just keep them coming.... :lol: 8) :wink:

    Okay the reason I don't like log cabins is they do look all whopper jawed!!! I was told I need to square the block up everytime it maks a square block...yek....and this log cabin is made from one inch strips...that makes 19 strips in one of those blocks...AND the first time I did a log cabin I put a strip on the wrong side and didn't catch it till the entire block was done....NOW we all know why I don't like log cabin blocks..... :XD: :XD: :lol: :lol:

    These are gorgeous! How nice to have a dad who quilts. I'm jealous! He will definitely be set for retirement. Could probably do pretty well at it for an extra source of income.

    It is a beautiful quilt-a great setting for a simple, common block. Stunning!!!! And I love your color choice.

    Log Cabin is one of my favorite blocks but I have never seen it done like this. I just love it. Oh no, another for my to do list. Does that ever stop growing?

    I love the blues and the browns together!

    Do you think your dad would adopt me? I could use someone willing to do all my quilting for me!
