Cabins in the Forest.

Posted on | September 5, 2010 | Comments Off on Cabins in the Forest.

This quilt has an interesting combination of just a few blocks. It has a house block that is split with a log cabin and it has a tree block also split with a log cabin. It then has flying geese in the border. The house blocks are supposed to be placed in the centre and then surrounded by the tree blocks. Mine ended up in reverse due to the number of blocks I had. I like the pattern layout and also the secondary pattern created by the diagonal lines. I started this quilt as a class at Primarily Patchwork in Maling Rd, Canterbury. Unfortunately I didn’t get it finished and put it away for a while. Thankfully when I did finally get around to finishing it, I had lots of help at my LQS. The end result was worth it.

The house block and the  border.

The tree blocks.

And the backing.

I only did basic stitch in the ditch quilting for this one.
