Log Cabin Littles

Here are my February little log cabin offerings.  I made theses two mug rugs for my buddies out of left over blocks from my "Cabin Fever" quilt.  After 18 years, I had to use them in some way.

I'm calling these "Slave Quarters" because they are 1 room log cabins.


I selected the backings based on my friends interests.  I also attached the scrappy binding log cabin style.


Here is a Pretty In Pink courthouse step dolly quilt I made for Diane's Birthday.   We both love double pinks.  She currently has a great liberated log cabin on her blog from the same era as mine.

 

I chose this backing because we also both love lettering and script on fabrics.


And finally a blast from the past.  Here is a funky little liberated log cabin doll quilt that I made at the same 1995 Gwen Marston retreat as my recently finished quilt.

This one is made of all plaids with a yellow center, which is called light in the window.


The backing is scrappy leftovers.


I unearthed several little doll quilt tops while cleaning out the sewing room.  They are nice small projects that I can work on while the sorting and cleaning continues.

I'll be on hiatus for Friday as I'm going to the QuiltFest of NJ.  I'll share some photos soon.
