Log cabin quilt from scraps by Creamcity
When I was in college my first exposure to quilting was at the living history museum where I worked part-time. We were working on making a reproduction of a log cabin quilt from one of our exhibits. Even though I didn't enjoy spending hours hand piecing blocks, I fell in love with the look of log cabin quilts.
Now I'm making my own log cabin quilt entirely out of scraps (except for one or two fat quarters in there that I purchased just for the quilt, just to keep a good mix of colors). It's something I'm working on in between other projects, so progress is slow.
Update January 2014: it's finally done! I am in love with it. It's nowhere near perfect but it's so bright and HAPPY! I did free motion quilting on it using my 90 year old treadle sewing machine. I just completely adore this quilt, and can't wait for my kids to see it!
