I was watching Design Matter TV and Linda was talking about the first quilt she had ever made (if I remember correctly). It was a log cabin which was the first large bed sized quilt I ever made as well. I had made a baby quilt in 1971 but the log cabin I made was a "quilt-in-a-day". It was a bear paw.
Well, I was cleaning my downstairs sewing space and found seven fabrics I had purchased to make Brian, my partner, a bed quilt. For some reason it seemed like too much trouble to cut a traditional quilt and I just made him an all pinks,reds and purple quilt from solids I would never use instead
I had cleaned right after watch the log cabin episode and "strangely" enough there were 3 lights and 3 darks and a hot pink that would be perfect for a log cabin so I set out....
I am used to strip piecing but she had a ironing technique that changed the way I will iron forever.
Now all I have to do is figure out what design I will use to assemble it.
