The Fabric & The Plan

Several times during the retreat I heard Elaine say that she loves Log Cabin quilts and has never made one. Elaine does gorgeous hand quilting! One of the ladies at the retreat had a gorgeous log cabin made of reds and tans that she didn’t bring out to show us til yesterday. Elaine and I were sitting on the sofa and Elaine said again how much she loves log cabins. A deal was made! I’ll make two identical (or almost identical) log cabin quilts and Elaine will hand quilt them. What a trade off for me . . I can machine piece them and she will do the hand quilting. I hope she doesn’t re-think this deal because I definitely think I’m getting the best end of this deal.

We decided we wanted ours to be red and tan too so I began buying fabrics for them today.

Here are the reds I bought, and I will supplement them with reds from my stash.

Reds

And, here are the tans, which will also be supplemented with fabric from the stash.

Tans

The green that is underneath the tans – that’s a green that I bought on my way to the retreat because I needed it for one particular project but .. I didn’t get around to working on that one but I will do that later this week I hope.

    What a deal! Love your fabric choices. Love log cabin quilts. I have the strips cut for one, but it is not sewn together. It’s on my Finish It Up List. Looking forward to seeing pictures of your quilts.
