I have been working my way through making a quilt. A quilt-as-you-go reversible log cabin quilt.
Each block is 7 3/4″ square and takes 35 minutes to construct – which doesn’t include the time taken to cut the fat quarters into strips. And it’s all machine sewn with the exception of the binding on the back side which neatly conceals the raw edges.
I attended a workshop with my mum at a quilting shop in a nearby town. We did not follow the “traditional” log cabin route by choosing to create a spiral of colour with a solid border instead, which raised the teacher’s eyebrows. But I prefer mine this way. I’ve joined 20 blocks together so far and intend to make at least another 8 before putting a border and binding around the whole thing. Once it’s (eventually) finished, it’ll live in my parents kitchen.
