My favorite Log Cabin quilt!

Cabin Stars

Two sizes of Log Cabin blocks make up this wall hanging. The blocks forming the center star have strips that finish at 1/2" and the outer star strips finish at 1".

Folk Art Thick & Thin

Folk Art Thick & Thin

A Log Cabin with thick (1" finished) and thin (1/2" finished) strips. Made using my Perfect Strips technique and no foundations.

Log Cabin Medallion

Log Cabin Medallion

This quilt combines the Thick and Thin Cabins blocks with an Off-center Cabin to make a graphic wall hanging. Most of the strips finish at 1/2". Made without foundations.

Off-Center Log Cabin

Off-Center Log Cabin

A Log Cabin Variation made with strips that finish at 1/2". The block begins like a regular cabin but at a certain point, strips are no longer added all around. Instead, the block is finished by adding strips to just two sides.

Courthouse steps blocks make up the background of this applique quilt. Another block made using the Perfect Strips Technique.

Tumbling block Log Cabin

Tumbling block Log Cabin

Three Diamond Log Cabins make up each tumbling block. The center is a diamond and strips are added around each one to form the cabin. Made using the Perfect Strips technique.

Geese in the Cabin

Geese in the Cabin

A Log Cabin block that is similar to the Pineapple but has flying geese radiating out from the center. These geese are made without any triangles! Bordered with scrappy squares and finished with applique flowers cut on the Accuquilt GO!. Some of the flowers feature my layered applique technique - five layers of flower fabric with fringed edges.

Geese in the Cabin Runner

Geese in the Cabin Runner

Geese in the Cabin Log Cabin blocks made into a table runner with extra-wide ric rac used on the border.

Not an antique

Not an antique

I found a photo of an antique Pineapple on line and duplicated it using my technique and reproduction fabrics. Once each block was finished, I dyed them with a mixture of coffee and tea and dried them first on a terry towel and then finished drying them using a dry iron. This set the color and gave the blocks a somewhat mottled look that you find in vintage quilts.

Civil War Pineapple with Pieced Frame Border

Civil War Pineapple with Pieced Frame Border

Another Pineapple variation with an interesting border. Check out the miniature blocks made with the same technique and fabrics.

Folk Art Pineapple

Miniature Pineapple Blocks

Miniature Pineapple Blocks

These miniatures are made using the Perfect Strips technique and no foundations. There are no tiny strips to handle with this method of making tiny cabins and Pineapples.

Pineapple Valentine

Pineapple Valentine

A simple Pineapple block with colors switched into different positions to create a dramatic and very graphic quilt. There are over 3600 pieces in this quilt with just one background fabric and over 22 different reds, giving the quilt even more interest. All the pieces finish at 1/2" in width. As with all my Pineapple quilts, this was made with no foundation.

Sunburst Star

Sunburst Star

Another pattern made using the Perfect Strips technique. An unusual star that is done in four sections which gives all sorts of opportunities for design changes. This is a simple four-block version that features "floating stars". No applique and no foundations.

Kaleidoscope Quilt

Kaleidoscope Quilt

Made using the Accuquilt GO!, this kaleidoscope pattern is just one block with two color variations. All the pieces are cut on the GO! and the leftovers are used to make other quilts. Check out the String Star and the Wacky Wedge quilt patterns, all made from leftovers from this quilt.

The same Kaleidoscope pattern made with string pieced triangles. These strings are left after cutting the original quilt and are pieced together into string units and then cut into triangles.
