Scrap Log Cabin Quilts
362" of binding finally finished! I sewed the binding to the top and hand stitched it (off and on) to the back only because I didn't know a better way. Well, believe me, over the course of 362" of binding - I have experimented with several different binding methods, my favorite method now being what I used when I attached the Green Ocean Waves binding (explained in an older post within the past month or so).
This is my 5th finished large log cabin (still working on the 6th). I cut the center squares 3.5" and the strips are cut 2". The finished block size is 14.5". Top is 90.5" X 90.5". This quilt is a gift for one of my sisters. Hopefully my husband won't grieve its departure from our household too much (gosh, he gets soooo attached to any quilt I make!) as we just so happen to have a very similar one of our own... which I have with me - so here is a photo... OK, different setting, different quilting pattern, maybe some different fabrics - but certainly alot of the same fabric. I liked this setting so much I made 2, maybe even 3 all alike. But I am liking the furrows setting very much now too! Hummm...
