Throwback Thursday

Here is another throwback post to share! I haven’t made a lot of Log Cabin quilts, but this remains one of my favorite quilts. Enjoy!

I think it was over a year ago that I cut out the pieces for this quilt!

I used this die from Accuquilt. Honestly, I would never make log cabin blocks any other way. This die can also be used for smaller log cabin blocks or even Court House Steps blocks.

And believe it or not, all the red and green pieces were cut from one length of fabric! The only intact piece I have left to show you is this bit I used as backing on another quilt.

Sorry about the toes! Lol! I did lots of close quilting on this and I love the texture it gives.

I’m not sure you can tell, but I used red thread in the top and bottom of the dark half of the blocks.

Have a great day!

    Looking at your quilt it almost looks like candy canes. I like the backing piece. Very pretty.
