    Lone Star Log Cabin

    I have wanted to make this one for a long time and have finally done it. It is quite large - about 104 by 90 and I pieced and quilted it on my domestic machine. It provided me with many "firsts", which I really enjoyed. The top is made from various cottons, the batting is wool and the backing is flannel. (We live in Canada, eh.) Due to some problems, I did start to call it the "evil one" for a while but I am very happy with the way it turned out. Name:  IMG_1791.jpg

    That quilt is absolutely gorgeous! The quilting is beautiful as well. I really like the feathers in the light log areas.

    Beautiful, I love the way the pillow tucks look. Did you go by a pattern or just make it up?

    Wow, it's gorgeous! I kinda love that something you called "the evil one" is so pretty ;P

    Did you do something special to get the pattern to look so purposefully rectangular where you cover the pillows, or does the fold naturally fall exactly at the edge of your first row of log cabins?

    That’s amazing. Log cabin quilts are always my favorite and the colors are perfect for it. I love your setting as well and the lone star center is stunning!

    Stunning! You did a terrific job on both the piecing and quilting. I love wool batting. This will keep you nice and warm this winter.

    Your quilt is awesome and I love your choice of fabric.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    Absolutely beautiful! I am very impressed with you quilting it on your domestic machine. I used to be able to do that to but it's been so long that I just can't seem to do it with a big quilt!
