Log Cabins


Here is my Cabin Corners quilt to show at the next Jo Morton Little Women class. It was so much fun to work out the fabrics in EQ and to put in a few of my really early quilt fabrics from the 70s or early 80s, back when I first began to collect quilt fabrics. Paper piecing. It took forever. Work has been so exhausting that I've been going to bed at the earliest hour you can imagine, then getting up at 1am or 2am to quilt before work. Best to give the highest amount of energy to the most important part of the day, eh?? Anything for the craft.

And how timely to be flipping through an old 1983 Country Living and to see this heavenly log cabin quilt that is literally log cabins! Do you love it???? I'd love to make this one.

Have you seen (and heard) this nice site with quilting links and midi clips of rags composed by women?


I'm really enjoying this rememberthemilk.com site. Naturally the most extensive and most funnest to check out tab is Quilting.

I knew there was a reason why I should not have thrown away all of my old Country Living magazines *s* Aren't log cabins great?

Love your little log cabin! The Country Living quilt is awesome!
I am with you in that when I am busy at work, etc I tend to hit the sack early and get up early. I am definately a morning person.
