Hark from Log Cabin Quilter

Another finish.  And this one became a finished top in 2008.  Two years older than the Christmas Sampler I finished and shared with you in the previous post.  The pattern I used was in "Christmas Or Not" which is an older Red Wagon book.  It is not clear which designer did the pattern.  The book was done by Gerry Kimmel, Jan Patek, and Linda Brannock.


I had a very good supply of homespuns (plaids and stripes) at the time I made this.  Nowadays, it is hard to find them and my stash supply has dwindled down.  Supply and demand is ...

Cheri's Christmas Sampler and Four Seasons Quilt from Log Cabin Quilter

I finished binding two quilts.  The first is the Christmas Sampler which is a pattern done by Cheri.  I finished the top in 2010 so ten years waiting for machine quilting and binding.  I have to lay bigger quilts on my kitchen floor for a picture so not the best angle.  I enjoyed making the blocks.  Plenty of variety to keep my interest going.



My second finish is "Four Seasons" which is a Jan Patek pattern found in the book "Seasonings".  A quilting friend and myself each made one for ourselves last year.


I have two more quilts that I ...

December "Mary Brown" Update from Log Cabin Quilter

I have had my "Celebrating Mary Brown" block done but had not taken a picture of it and onto a blog post.  In this block, I like the stripe flower best of any of them.


I am working on a Jan Patek design along with a quilting friend (non-blogger).  The pattern is "Pleasant Grove Primer".  I have some parts done and am sharing a picture but this is not the actual layout of the blocks.


Look for more Jan Patek quilts from me in 2020.

Below are some of the applique blocks from the "Halloween Sampler" by Fig Tree that ...

Missouri Star Shop Feature: Primitive & Wool from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

“Primitive,” also known as “Early Americana” style, emerged from within the first colonies here in the “New World.” Once the colonists were finally settled in, they had a bit more time get creative with everyday necessities such as clothing, furniture, and children’s toys.

While sewing up clothes for their children and fulfilling the duty of “homemaker,” women started to enhance their making skills with decorative stitching and design, steering away from trends in Europe and creating the first American style.

Today, folk artists use modern elements to create an antiquated look. At Missouri Star Quilt Co., we have a ...

Fall Festival, Pine Tree Ridge, Show and Tell from Cottons 'n Wool

Hi there...Long time no see!   I've been waiting to post so that I could include the Fall Festival quilt by Jan Patek.  This is a quilt a long with Lori of Humble Quilts.   Our homework for this month was to finish the blocks and flying geese on the inner portion of the quilt.

Here's mine.



But then, I was in the mood to put the whole quilt together, so....voila!   I'm finished.   
It's a really big quilt (82x92) but I have a wall to hang it on, so I'm looking forward to getting it ...

Fall Festival from Cottons 'n Wool

If you've been following my blog or Lori's Humble Quilts blog, you know that she organized a group quilt-a-long doing Jan Patek's quilt, "Fall Festival.

Our homework this month was 3 more blocks and start working on the flying geese that are scattered throughout the quilt.    I got my blocks finished, but haven't started on the geese because I haven't picked the fabric for my sashing.

I'm doing all the applique blocks using wool on cotton.

Here's what we did this month.



At the rate we're going, we will be finished in ...
