This is a log cabin table runner I made for a dear friend. The pattern I copied was from something I had seen on Pinterest. But after I started quilting I noticed my log cabin pattern looked a bit different then the sample pattern. My logs were longer. I checked and double checked my measurements but I still haven't figured out what went wrong. The good thing about giving a quilt to a non quilter is they will never know if you made a mistake.
I love the colors of this quilt and have used this material before. The fabric strips were already cut which made it very easy for me to get started quickly.
I was also supposed to alternate the color strips more. I didn't but again unless I told you that you probably wouldn't have known.
The stippling is the part I am most excited about. I saw this on Pinterest as well. A great tutorial on how to make these flowers. I mapped out the entire thing in a grid on the back with a white pencil. Then I carefully sewed each curve going up one side and then down the other. I washed the quilt and the white pencil went away. I have been wanting to try new stippling methods and I was really happy with how this one turned out.
I am a full time working mom of twin boys. My passion is my children. My hobby is quilting. This blog is my quilting journal. I love to share my quilts and arts and craft projects with friends and family. After a long hiatus of taking care of twin babies and then running after them as toddlers I finally have the time and energy to quilt again. I love sewing as my sons sit beside me or play near my sewing machine. Who knew boys could be so interested in quilting.
