Pingback: The First Mid Week Log Cabin Retreat « Virtual Quilter
I’ve been away from the blogs for a while and remembered that I love log cabins and that it was time for me to get back to making some instead of “looking” at them. This year will be the year of finishing UFO’s and 3 of them are log cabin-style quilts using my scraps and what I have on hand. Keep the inspirations coming. Thanks so much for all your great ideas. When I get one finished, you will be sure to get a picture of it. Sorry I don’t have a blog yet, but maybe later on in 2010 if time permits to keep it running. Thanks Darlene in MO
I have so many designs saved the inspiration will keep coming for a long long time!
Look forward to seeing photos! I will set up an album page on the blog for them. Already have a couple of quilts, one a log cabin to put up there.
Judy, I have started a scrappy quilt with old jeans and plaid flannel pieces based on one of your log cabin virtual patterns. It is the first one I’ve tried but I am using half square triangles instead of log cabin blocks — because I already had a box of these sewn tog. My jeans are both light and dark blue, the plaids are also a mixture. It is looking neat (at least I think so) but not as good as if I were using truly dark and light blocks exclusively.
I have a question though. I want to make it into a rectangle instead of a square and was not sure how to lengthen it and still maintain the pattern accents. I’m also not sure how I will quilt it since there are 4 thicknesses of jeans where some of the seams come tog.
Thanks for any help.
Which design are you using …… I can work out something for you, and show others how to do it as well.
As for the quilting, those thick seams would be a problem both by hand and machine! I think I would tie it, using at least two strands of 8ply yarn through all the layers. The yarn ends can be buried between the layers of the quilt, or left on either the top or the back. I prefer to leave them showing on the front, and use two, three or four strands of yarn …. the more strands the more effective the tufts will be.
