When I taught quiltmaking for community organizations and a chain of fabric stores in the Southeast, the first block we pieced was a log cabin. Some people went home and immediately pieced a whole bunch. I pieced log cabin blocks for decorative items and for clothing, but I don't think I ever pieced a log cabin quilt.
I did quilt one for my dear friend Bobbie one summer when we spent several weeks at her mountain cabin. You can see that quilt here.
When I saw this quilt top, I knew I wanted to quilt another log cabin and thought it would be great if I could quilt this one. Missy said, "Sure. I'll mail it to you." That was last March; life intervened; then I suffered a case of cold feet. I decided I really need to kick my creativity in the derriere. She received it in the mail today. She's going to put the binding on.
Here are more details of the quilting.
I quilted another quilt for her. I like it even better--probably because it's now a three-person quilt, and in a world of unique quilts, that one is very special!
