dancing log-cabins



Reading Jeanne´s blog reminded me that I had a log-cabin like the one she was talking about. I found the pattern in an old American quilter´s newsletter and as I fancy log-cabins and had never made one before, I thought I would try that one. I used quite a lot of blues and beiges from my stash and added a stripe from a quite horrible strippy fabric and a large motif one I think I bought in France. The back is of blue toile de Jouy bought in France as well. I quilted it on the machine. It was finished in Sept. 2005 and is called French Blues (!)
Thank you for all the nice comments you left on the January challenge quilt!

The dancing log cabins are wonderful. So much more interesting than the regular ones.

what a lovely log cabin quilt. So different to what i usually see. I love the border fabric you used.

I love this quilt and your inner border cleverly cut with the squiggle... very nice!

That is a really cool log cabin pattern! Thanks, btw, for your comments on my blog. I posted an answer to your question there.

Thanks for the great visit. I love your dancing Log Cabins, especially the border. Come by my blog for a visit and check out the September 2006 - I posted 2 of them. Just love that pattern and it appears to be difficult, but I find it relatively easy, right?

Your student's quilt's are so neat. Great job.

Where can I find the pattern for the dancing log cabin. I just love it but can't find the pattern.
