    Jan's Log Cabin with a beautiful different center.

    Take a look at the center of Jan's quilt. I just love how she rotated "leaves" upon the center star. Feathered wreaths are quilted in the corners of the center block, with feathers rotating around the logs, first one direction then changing directions in the dark logs. I treated the two outside borders as one border and quilted them with piano key quilting following the printed design in the light green fabric. Hobbs 80/20 batting was used. I changed thread color to match the background fabrics.

    Another gorgeous quilt you posted today!! Well done to both of you!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    The center is perfect for a log cabin quilt! The block is named "Flying Swallow" in 1000 Great Quilt Blocks, by Maggi McCormick Gordon.
