Cabins

 
I have a theme going here. I just booked the last cabin at Lewis Mountain in Shenandoah National Park for a hike in May with Laura. There are only 30 cabins at Lewis campground so they get reserved early. Laura has already hiked all of the Appalachian Trail in Shendoah but it's such an enjoyable part of the Trail she's going to hike it again with me. COME ON MAY!
So while I'm day dreaming of seeing budding trees, new fauns and foraging bears (oh my!) I'm going to quilt this log cabin top I've had for quite a while. The quilt is from Judy Martin's “Log Cabin Quilt Book.”
 
 
I made several of the quilts in this book and I still love to make traditional log cabin quilts. I took a look at Judy Martin's website for quilting design ideas. Wow! She is selling lots of quilts and quilt tops from her book. She's using the Priceline method of marketing–“Make Me an Offer.” Wouldn't it be cool to own a quilt made by Judy Martin!
 
 
These are 4 of the blocks I worked on in Florida. The pattern is from Bonnie Hunter and I'm using only fabric from my stash. I think the blocks will be perfect in a log cabin setting. I'm longing to work on these but it's such a perfect project for a sewing get-a-way that I have boxed up everything, ready to go when needed.
I planned on ending this post with a witty quip about having cabin fever but since it is about 5 degrees outside and I'm thinking of Laura in Massachusetts buried under 9 feet of snow…I just can't do it. Sigh. COME ON MAY! I'll even settle for March if it warms up.

  1. I really like the scrappy blocks you are showing. I’m consider that as a wedding quilt in ‘Blues’ and using LOTS of blues I own. Just started pondering this project this week & this might be the answer. Also, I love the borders on your log cabin!!!!
