I spent most of the summer working on charity quilts. It was a very hot summer here and there was a limited amount of time I could spend outside. I worked on my quilting skills. I had not made a quilt using the log cabin pattern before; I decided to try it.
I was really encouraged; it was a lot of fun, and relatively easy. I decided to make another.
This one used green and gold.
I did one more log cabin - this time on point. The centers of this one are printed redwork that I cut from some interesting fabric. The outside log on the center six included a row of lighter color to define the blocks.
I made several more quilts. All will be donation quilts to the Covers for Kids program.
Notice the pictures are getting better - new camera.
This one was a challenge to combine several orphan blocks that were given to me. I added a few of my own.
This one utilized a bunch of small triangles. They were the corners cut off in an earlier project.
This one was made using the patterns posted in the Civil War Project. It was a study in setting techniques.
