    I made this back in 2006. I took a sewing machine with me on one of the many cruises we have been on (23 in 10 yrs, 218 days total at sea with another 30 days coming up). Anyway, I needed to paper piece log cabins so they come out right. So, I pieced all the blocks on one cruise. When we got home I sewed the blocks together and quilted it and put the binding on the front. On the next cruise I added the flowers and leaves and hand buttonhole stitched them on and hand sewed the binding to the back. There are 20 different black and white fabrics and 20 white on white fabrics. See the dog and cat fabrics? LOL!
    I only did straight line quilting on this. I loaded the quilt on the diagonal and quilted it with my channel locks for the straight line quilting.

    Just gorgeous! I love a great log cabin quilt! Love the red tulips as well. Great job with quilting, sometimes a simple top quilting really sets off the quilt, and yours is perfect!
    Blessings,
