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.


  1. I'm so excited to see fabric for my quilt at the top of the page. Thank you for sharing your talent, Lisa! --Rebecca

  2. It's beautiful. Can't wait to see how Rebecca's quilt turns out. I have to get my butt in gear and get ahead for the craft show so I can start working on projects like this. I have soooo many in mind and it's driving me nuts.
