Throwback Thursday

Here is another log cabin quilt that is as different as could be than the one I shared last week! This too is a favorite. Maybe they all are? Enjoy!

I started this Log Cabin quilt over two years ago and I am SO happy to say it is finally done!  

The blocks finish at 4 inches. I think I drafted the block in EQ but I don’t really remember anymore. The quilt finished at 42 inches square. And it really is square but the wind made it look like it wasn’t in these pics. 

 And the back. 

I used Warm and White batting, Glide thread, and Superior Mono-Poly. I used a template for the circles in the red border. It has 72,224 quilting stitches in the top and has 848 pieces. I did a lot of ripping on this one. It is one of the few quilts that I didn’t love working on. But now it’s done and I like it. It will soon hang in my hall.

    Oh, I do love scrappy quilts, all those fabrics singing in harmony! I have one similar in the works, currently in time out. Using 1 1/2″ strips, one strip from each of my 1800’s fabrics reprints. Other quilts are demanding attention at this time.

    I meant to ask about the backing, it it vintage?

    I really love your little log cabin quilt, especially the setting! It looks like it would be good to display during the Christmas season too.
