Pink Log Cabin Love
I started making this Log Cabin Quilt approximately 16 years ago. It was a Quilt in a Day pattern and I attended a workshop for it at a quilt store. Obviously, for me it wasn't a quilt in a day! It was originally meant to be a lap size with 12 blocks. I put most of it together but did not like it. The 12 blocks did not have a lot of patterns so it got set aside for many years. I would take it out every so often, look at it, think about giving it to another quilter and then would put it away again, until last week when I saw a gorgeous pink log cabin quilt on Mary's blog. It made me take out my quilt and look at it all over again. I realized that I had enough fabric left that I could make another four blocks which would give me much more choices in terms of settings. I made four more blocks and voila here is a new quilt.
I chose the Barn Raising setting. I love this quilt so much now and can't believe I had thought about giving it away. I have started sewing the rows together and I am excited to see it all together. This is what I love about quilting. It continues to surprise me, excite me and inspire me even after all these years!
