Log Cabin Quilt--finished!
There's just something satisfying about finishing a quilt. I love how you can start with this:
And finish with this:
This quilt, for my friend Dan, was my first attempt at a log cabin block. I've been wanting to try a log cabin quilt pretty much since I started quilting a few years ago, but I never had the right fabrics. When Dan asked for his quilt to be made with black, white, and gray, however, I knew it was time to give this block a try.
Can you believe that each of the blocks took me an hour to make? I was shocked by that. However, I'd say that the end result was well worth the effort. I'm mailing this off to Dan today and I can't wait to get his reaction.
