I am showcasing another doll quilt as my entry in to the Bloggers Quilt Festival. I made this little beauty for the 11th round of Doll Quilt Swap. In this round we were challenged to get back to our roots and use more traditional blocks. I decided to
torture challenge myself to do some extra small piecing. My partner loved log cabins and the colors red, white and aqua, so I went to work on this quilt.
First I pieced 30 1 1/2" log cabin blocks. Insanity right? Perhaps! LOL! I did learn that you need to have a very sharp blade on your rotary cutter. You also need to be able to accurately cut each one of the logs. I think next time I will foundation piece them. That might make things a tad bit easier.
30 Blocks!! With each block I made, I became more and more excited. Things were coming together nicely. I left them out on the counter in a small dish so I could admire them throughout the day. I liked holding them in my hands and feeling the texture of the logs sewn together.
Here is the top. I chose to use a different layout instead of the traditional layout for log cabins. It was a bit of a bear to put together! It was a challenge to get things to line up correctly. Once it was complete,I decided to add a border to it and then quilt it in a slanted pattern. This winter I am going to have to make one for myself. After all that work, I became quite attached to this litle gem. My partner was so excited and appreciative. I'm glad she went to a good home.
Thanks for stopping by my blog!
I hope you come back soon for another visit!!
