I made this log cabin table topper eons ago. Found it stuffed away when looking to see if I had any acceptable inner border fabric for Crazy 4 You. The pieced section stops with the darkest red. I have since added borders as illustrated below. This is square, not cross shaped, but I do like the effect of this image!
Mar 22: Looked through my stash to find enough fabric for a backing
Apr 10: I am piecing the back from fabric from my stash. I have never pieced a backing like this before and may still end up with two quilts instead of one. We shall see!! I also have plenty of coordinating fabric to make some nice place mats. A fun project to work on in my spare time of which I have little!!
Apr 11:After much deliberation, I have decided these need to be separate stand alone quilts.
Apr 13: Prepared the backing from fabric on hand. There is just barely enough for both quilts. Oh yes!
Apr 17: Have the block layout now for the log cabin quilt. And it is quilted!
Jun 04: Finished binding on Log Cabin
SQUARE OFF IS SOLD
Apr 14: Quilted the 2nd one I am calling Square Off.
Jun 05: Finished binding on Square Off
July 21: John Cook bought Square Off & I bought my third car from him.Thank you, John on both counts.

Log cabins are amazing whether fabric or wood! LOL. With my new Electric Quilt software, I can produce in seconds every layout of log cabin quilts imaginable and then fill in with images of the fabric. Might try to draw yours. If you send me photos of the actual fabrics, that works. We can then play with borders to see how it sizes up.

Disaster? Oh my! Thank you for reading and commenting on this blog. I would love to see it pick up activity, not for complements though nice, but to really see what folks think and see and like.

I checked out your website. I see now that Disaster Relief is your business. How interesting. I was just chatting with a woman in Australia in a disaster situation just now. Small world.
