I love log cabin quilts

Mom and I were talking today about cutting up some of her stash that she no longer wants into strips for log cabin or courthouse steps quilts. Log cabins are one of my favorite patterns and I’ve made many. In the last few years I’ve been using leftover strips and strings for them. 

I use the straight furrows setting a lot. 



And while I don’t usually enjoy sashing quilts, I like how this one turned out too. 



I keep my eyes open for log cabin quilts on eBay too when I’m looking for inspiration. These two really appeal to me. 





Vic shared her log cabin quilt with me today via email – she quilted freehand baptist fans on it. Isn’t it gorgeous?



I’ve been cutting and kitting up projects from Mom the last couple days … Will get at least one more done tomorrow for her and hope they’ll keep her busy until I visit again in July.

    Thank you for honoring my Log Cabin with the Piano Keys border on your blog! I really had fun making it and used your “How To’s”. Since you also taught me how to Free Hand Baptist Fans, I now use it a lot. Thanks again!

    I love the log cabin quilts and you have inspired me to get cutting the older fabrics in my huge stash?! They will make nice bright quilts both for home of my family but also for donation quilts.
    Love them!

    I love the log cabin quilts too and have made several. But I haven’t done a scrappy one so that might have to go onto my “someday” list.

    I imagine your mom loves having the kits to work from. And I’m imagining some great conversations going on while you work on cutting and kitting for her. Lovely way to spend some quality mother-daughter time.
