Over a year ago, my amazingly talented and generous Brit Bee ladies sent me their take on log cabin blocks, which I requested when I was queen bee in January '12.
I love all of their blocks, and enjoyed making them into a quilt top.
Then I stalled!
A few months back I started piecing the back for this special quilt, and decided to go with a giant log cabin (my inspiration was this stunner!). I bought a jelly roll in 'Oh Deer' and adding in some missing colours from my stash, followed the rainbow order of ROYGBIV!
While I like the Oh Deer collection, I'm not a fan of it in jelly roll form, because some of the cute patterns get lost in the strips.
I used up some Vintage Modern mini charm squares in the centre, and put in more of my denim-esk cotton between the rows.
I have to admit the piecing of this giant log cabin was tedious, which is why I only did a few rows every so often!
But it is now complete, and I'm looking forward to getting it basted and quilted and finished!
Even if it is a year late!
And I'll leave you with a funny quote my daughter found on Pinterest:
Hope you've had a great week!
