    This is a quilt block I made from a picture of

    the log cabin on the farm where I grew up. I tried to upload the picture as well but couldn't get it to upload. It will be the middle block for a quilt I am making for my youngest son.

    It's fantastic! That is a wonderful way to pass along your memories in such a unique way!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Yes, I took pin tucks in the fabric for the roof, because the cabin has a tin roof with ridges on it.
