As much as I love star quilts I also love log cabin designs. I pieced and hand quilted this one over a year ago and found it while I was cataloging my stock. At 52″ x 66″ it is a fairly large quilt that will be perfect for a baby bed or toddler size bed. I used three shades of blue for one side of the cabin and three different shades and designs of white on white for the other side. Red gingham fabric was used for the binding to match the traditional red center block.
As you can see from the first picture Sami was on the job doing her quilt inspector imitation.
Linking to Cooking Up Quilts
This is Sami, better known as Sami The Wonder Dog. She is my Quilting Assistant (meaning she grabs every block or scrap I drop on the floor and adds it to her stash under the table), Inspector, (she can spot an untrimmed thread from across the room), and Watch Dog (that does not bark). I think she has joined the Dog Workers Union because she insists on having a potty break every hour, to include fresh ice in her bowl and a treat. Now she is branching out and is entered into the Pets on Quilts contest at Lily Pad Quilting. Please visit Lily Pad and vote for Sami. I know she will appreciate it, but I don’t know if I will be able to afford the increase in pay she will demand.
Please vote for Sami. She is #15.
I can finally post what I have been working on for the past four months as it has now been gifted. Anyone that knows me understands how hard it was for me to keep this a secret but now I don’t need to anymore. 🙂
I call this quilt the Starry Log Cabin and it is completed with navy blue stars, that looked black at my house, and shades of browns and off whites. I also made four pillowcases and a throw pillow to match. As you can see from my lilac wall and night table covers it was not meant to go in my bedroom but I am hoping that it will look nice in the recipient’s room.
