I am so glad I made it back in time for Amy's Quilt Festival as the Spring Festival was such fun and led me to lots of new blogger friends!
As I've already written about my favourite quilt , this time I've chosen a log cabin, another quilt that really tried my patience (!) as the logs were only 3/4" finished which not only took forever to cut and piece but - all that pressing !!!!
I just love the placement of the blocks, which I found in a very old Quiltmaker magazine I 'inherited' from a quiltie friend here in Brittany and as this has now been passed on ( English language quilting mags are very precious here in France !!) I can't tell you which issue it was! Every time I look at this quilt I can see something different as there are stars and diamonds, squares and triangles, some straight furrows, sunshine & shadows and maybe even a little barn raising? All this in one quilt - it doesn't get much better than that !!
I also made my first pieced back for this quilt, nothing very flash, but just one big log cabin type block to make the fabric go a little further which works for me !
In spite of the scorched fingers (!) it was certainly worth the time & trouble and has become a firm favourite of mine and most of the family, which is why it still lives with me and hasn't found a new home as I am too much of a coward to decided who to give it too!
