    I made this wreath wall hanging in (generally) the log cabin pattern (used a courthouse steps variation for the bow) and the ribbon border (from Eleanor Burns' Victory Quilts book). You can't see the quilting in the wreath (sort of holly-shaped leaves) but the meandering on the white does show.

    This one's for me!

    I didn't exactly have a pattern...was copying a wreath I'd seen in my LQS and used EQ7 to help with the layout. In retrospect, I wish I'd made the red center squares of the log cabins smaller (I cut 2" squares, but would prefer 1.5" squares, which is the width of the strips). As I said above, the ribbon border is from the Victory Quilts book, but now, looking at the picture, I would have done the corners a bit differently (I'm surprised I didn't notice that in the EQ7 picture).
