Extraordinary Log Cabin Quilts Sneak Peek
This is Pioneer Log Cabin. The pattern will be in my new book, Extraordinary Log Cabin Quilts. For a long time I wasn't sure about making this and including it in the book. Steve kept insisting, and I kept tinkering with the proportions until I finally had it right. It's a good thing Steve kept hounding me. I love everything about this quilt, from the Japanese fabrics to the bold colors to the superimposed rings to the unusual Log Cabin set. I hope you like it, too.
Aspen Log Cabin was Steve's favorite from the moment I sketched it out in the computer. Now he waffles between favoring this one or Pioneer Log Cabin above. Almost all of the quilts in the book are made with just squares and rectangles. Truly, regardless of experience level, anyone with an accurate seam allowance can make these quilts.
This looks like it could be a dragon for the Chinese New Year or a child's board game. I call it Playful Spirit. Regardless of the set, the pattern has a playful quality to it. It's a perfect quilt for the inner child in all of us. Though Playful Spirit has curved effects throughout, it does not have any curved pieces. It's simply made from rectangles of varying lengths. How easy is that?!!
Extraordinary Log Cabin Quilts will be out in the fall of 2013.
