Flower Power!

I just took this gorgeous Log Cabin quilt off the frame.  Done with Kaffe Fassett fabrics, it’s definitely not your grandmother’s log cabin!  I’m calling this one “Flower Power”.  The piecer (Cheryl M) fussy cut large scale flowers for the middle square of each Log Cabin block.  I decided to play up those flowers by quilting a rose in each of them and framed them with feather swags.  The diagonal outer strip of each block was done in a chevron pattern.  This was one large quilt!  It seemed to take me a long time to do this one, but I think it’s just that my time is a little more scarce these days.  It’s getting better though – my dad is getting stronger each day.  Anyway, the fabrics are busy, so the quilting pattern isn’t obvious.  I would probably recommend an overall pattern next time because of that.  I used Glide pink and yellow and Quilters Dream blend on this.

Excuse the pic quality – I took these pics at 6:30 a.m. with no outside light coming in – just the lamplight which always casts a yellow light.
