This first quilt is a queen size log cabin quilt with one inch finished logs. It is in a barn raising layout. I pieced and quilted this one, but my mom did the handwork on the binding.
I quilted it on my Grace Machine Quilting frames with loops and leaves over the blocks and a leafy border design. I think this is one of the first scrappy pieced backings we made. I love how it looks.
This second quilt is a twin size log cabin. I did the piecing and the quilting and my mom did the handwork on the binding.
This one was quilted with my Janome while it was sitting in my cabinet. It is also quilted with loops and leaves.
This backing is also pieced. There is cabin, bear, and moose fabric.
This third quilt is a queen size courthouse steps quilt. My mother did the piecing, I did the quilting, and she did the handwork on the binding.
It is also quilted on my grace frames with loops and leaves.
We pieced the backing to coordinate with the queen size log cabin quilt.
This fourth quilt is a twin size courthouse steps. I pieced and quilted it, and once again my mother did the handwork on the binding.
It was quilted on my Janome while it was sitting in my cabinet. Once again with loops and leaves. Loops were what I quilted the best, and I enjoyed dressing them up by adding shapes.
The backing was made to match the twin size log cabin quilt.
I love seeing how different all four quilts look, yet how well they coordinate together. These four quilts are usually on four beds in one large bedroom, but these pictures were taken in my parent's back yard. Sadly, my family didn't go to my dad's cabin for awhile and mice broke in. When my mother and I heard that the mice were "eating" the quilts we were heartbroken. Luckily, the damage was not nearly as bad as we imagined. Just a few spots here and there.
These quilts may look a little bit familiar, because I used some of the leftovers to make my husband a quilt back in 2006.
There were a lot of leftovers... like enough for another five to seven quilts. LOL.
I will share the other three cabin quilts in another post. So watch for it coming soon. :)
P.S. I will be linking up with some of the fun parties on my sidebar. Check them out for lots of quilty inspiration.
