    WOW! What a beautiful log cabin! No wonder you got a ribbon. That is just gorgeous.

    I am so happy for you. I love the red centers. I read somewhere that the center is supposed to represent the light of the home/cabin. I think you really did the pattern justice.

    Congratulations on your beautiful quilt. Could you make another one to give. You didn't expect this to win and it would be nice if you could keep it. I'm a very giving person but doubt I could give a winner up but would happily put in the time and expense to duplicate it as closely as possible and give to the promised person. I'm sure they'd understand.

    I'm finishing up a quilt that I believe stands a good chance to place and because of that, won't enter it into the quilt show because I know beyond a doubt my daughter in law would treasure the quilt which is for her youngest daughter and would NEVER allow my granddaughter to use or enjoy that "special" quilt if it would place. Since this quilt was made specifically for her, I'm not taking the chance as it's important to me that my children and grandchildren treasure my quilts by enjoying them to the fullest and I mean using them. They tell me they feel my love in them every time they use one and those are my blue ribbon quilts.

    Give it some thought. You could always put it in your will that it will go to that person or survivors once your gone but I definitely would make another one and keep this one. Just my opinion. Good luck with whatever you decide to do.

    I was going to ask, but just couldn't. It was made for a friend to celebrate the fact that he didn't die from cancer (and has been cancer-free for almost two years now...woo hoo!!!!). I know he will take care of it. I did warn him, however, that he better not go on vacation and expect me to keep an eye on the house!!! LOL!! I have pictures of it, both under construction and hanging with the award, so that's really enough. I have plans to applique the ribbon to a background and then frame it and hang it in my sewing room. Thank you for your kind words.

    I agree with you totally under those circumstances. He will be so honored to get your special quilt. That truly is a labor of love and hope that he will feel every time he looks at your quilt or uses it. It definitely will be treasured and may even be worn out and that's just fine. Guess this win is God's reward to you for doing a kind and generous deed without greed. Bless you.
    Hugs

    Thanks for making me cry!! Happy tears, though. It does make me feel good to know that some little thing I've made can make someone else feel good and safe and warm.

    Sorry to make you cry but happy tears are good tears. You are doing a very special thing and giving a very precious and priceless gift. Congratulations on your win and oh yes, make sure you have a very good photo of the quilt and the ribbon in place on it but you'll always carry a special warmth in your heart for this gift of love. Love is priceless!

    lOVE YOUR LOG CABIN. I HAVE MATERIAL READY FOR A LOG CABIN BUT HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO ACTUALLY DECIDE IF I SHOULD DO IT BY FOUNDATION PIECING AS I WOULD LIKE TO DO TRY THAT OUT AND KEEP ALL THE BLOCKS EVEN. DID YOU CUT YOUR STRIPS AND/OR HAVE YOU MADE A LOG CABIN USING A FOUNDATION BEFORE?? NICE COLOUR EFFECT YOU MANAGED.

    Thank you for saying. I've done them both ways. I prefer paper pieced --- no matter how careful you are, regular piecing can still come out slightly different in size block to block. This quilt is paper pieced using 1" finished logs. It was a very random selection. Whatever I grabbed went next, except I wouldn't put the same fabric next to itself. This is a good one to get used to paper piecing. Linda Causee has a few books of patterns that are really nice. Have fun with it!
