Thank you for all the nice comments about my log cabin quilts! My inspiration for making them with the larger than common red center squares came from this quilt here - a quilt made by either my Nana or Great-Aunt. This old quilt uses 1 1/2" strips - or less - (logs finish at 1" or less) I suppose depending upon how much of a scrap of fabric was on hand. The finished quilt is on the small size - but a good size for the 3/4 sized beds that used to be so common (in between a twin and double). Close-up fabric photos for you fabric hounds out there! It is summer spread - meaning there is no batting, but every single log is quilted anyway! I had this quilt on my bed every summer as a little girl and despite years of use, it still looks brand new!
