Log Cabin quilts.
Now there's a challenge I can really get excited about.
One of my earliest quilts was a log cabin quilt.
Funny enough my youngest pulled it out to use, just last week
and found that it hadn't been completely quilted yet.
Does anyone remember those little tagging guns that shot out red plastic tags?
A quick way of basting a quilt.
There were a bunch of them still left in the quilt.
Considering that was one of my first quilt projects...
those red tags were the least of it's sins!
After searching and thinking...
I pulled out fabrics from the "Check it Out" by Kathy Engle.
This is one of the fabulous new "Island Batik" fall lines.
These checks are so much fun,
that I had to add them to the applique border, just to set it off!
This pattern was inspired from Debbie Kratovil's "Pixie Sticks" pattern that appeared in the March/April "McCalls Quilting" magazine.
It's a web bonus that you can still get for free
happy dance happy dance!
I used a Hobbs Tuscany cotton wool blend batting.
Batting with wool in it, drapes so nicely.
A big thanks to "Island Batik" and "Hobbs",
for providing me the fabrics and batting for this project!
til next time...
Keep on Stitchin'
