I haven't even settled on a string quilt project for this week yet so I am definitely going to have to get creative to start and finish something before Sunday. I have several projects in the works but they will all take some time (maybe weeks!) to finish.
I do have a few pictures to share of another log cabin doll quilt I recently made for Kathleen Tracy's Prairie Children Quilt challenge.
I decided to try to follow her layout and colors. I also hand quilted each log down the center as she did. I don't think my quilt (left) has the same charm as hers but I still like it very much!
Its made entirely from Jo Morton reproduction fabrics and the logs are only one inch finished. Click on the photo for a better look at the fabrics if you'd like.
I wonder what the maker of the antique quilt was like. Why did she try so many different color and quilt layouts? Do you think she was strong and confident with her layout or is this a utility quilt she was practising on?
Years from now, will someone find my log cabin doll quilt and wonder about me? Most of all, I wonder what conclusions they will draw!
