Log cabin quilt, 24" x 24", paper pieced using batik fabrics.
I uploaded these three photos and gave my post a title, and looked back to find a link on my blog for the quilt I did in another colourway...and found it has the same three shots and title...how boring and predictable! Oh well, here it is, the little quilt I've been doing off and on recently. I haven't put the backing or binding on yet. It's the same as one I've made before using autumnal colours (I'll never get tired of the log cabin pattern!) but this time I wanted the pattern to be less distinct. I've been dying to make something using these colours for a while.
Close-up of the centre. I can't decide whether to put beads on it (probably not) or free motion with some metallic threads (maybe) or leave it as it's fussy enough without. It's certainly going to cheer up the empty space on the wall in my room since I gave the last one away as a gift.
I really like that bright and colourful grid on the back. There must be a great idea for an 'inside out' quilt there somewhere.
