    Himnherr Beautiful quilt.Question,when you sewed the rows together ,how did you keep the batting from overlapping? Did you sew the batting with the fabric or hold it back when you were stitching? (if that makes sence) Blessings

    Thanks! I sewed it on the front only, first, no batting in the seam. Then when I turned it over I laid it out flat on my table and trimmed the batting so it just butted up against each other. Then I handstitched the backing. Then I sewed that seam with a straight stitch from the front. It should've caught the batting then, but if it didn't the batting was stitched by my quilting only about 1" away as I did all of the log ends by stitching them like stair steps. Whew! I hope this is clearer than mud. Lol!

    Log Cabin quilts are my favorite. YOUR scraps made for a beautiful quilt. When I look at my scraps, they don't look so delightful!!! Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks! Some of the scraps I used were not very pretty, and I wondered if the ugly ones would stand out. I don't think they do, tho. Gives yours a chance! It's a really fun block to do.

    beautiful, in Great Britain it would probably be damp to leave it in a camper, is it drier where you are?

    Beautiful quilt and love how you did it as I do not have room to do a big quilt in my 4 feet of sewing space, but could do that and move to larger area for final sewing. Great job and you will enjoy it.

    Hmm...not sure. I've always left my bedding in the camper & never had trouble with mold. But thanks for the headsup. I'll check on it to be sure.

    I love it, with it being so long it will keep out any extra drafts you might get in the camper. Very nice.

    I love log cabins. I have made several also. I think they are down to earth kind of quilts. This is a very pretty one. Maybe my next one will be scrappy also. Again, this is quite lovely.
