    Snake River Log Cabin

    I bought this as a kit a number of years ago, and have been working on it off and on as I have time between other projects. I finally got the body of the quilt on the design wall. It is a queen, so the design wall is too small to put up the borders. I am really loving this one! Pattern by Judy Martin.

    Amazing design & color! I love the placement of the blocks. It reminds me of some sort of elegant flooring that would maybe would be in an important building from the past. Thanks for sharing.

    ​Beautiful blocks and you would need to put them on your design wall to keep them in position for sewing!

    really nice. you are very courageous. lots of practice with 1/4" seams. I did one of hers and I am not sure I am that skilled to start another one.

    Man, that's an amazing pattern. No wonder it's taken you years off and on. It will be a magnificent quilt when finished.

    Thank you all for your kind comments. As I said, I can't take credit for the design or the colors, since it was a kit. But I wonder if I would have bought the kit if I had realized the logs finished at 1 inch!! It certainly was a lesson in cutting and piecing accuracy. (I cut all these pieces before I bought my Accuquilt!) I guess I will find out better what my accuracy in piecing was like when I sew these blocks together. But I have enjoyed making this, and to see it on the design wall makes it all worthwhile.

    P.S. An additional perk with buying the kit was the autographed book that the pattern was in!

    It looks terrific so far! You've done a wonderful job. I don't know if I could match all those seams!
