Have you ever wanted to make a log cabin quilt? Amber Logs is a 48" x 48" quilt that I made using log cabin blocks and I have a pattern for it.
It looks beautiful draped over a couch or if you have a large wall, it would look great hanging there.
48" x 48"
Where does the time go! I made this quilt in 2014 and blogged about it in July of that year. This is an updated post as I know that for many of you, this is the first time you'll have seen this quilt on my blog.
The blocks in this quilt are called off-center log cabin and many times they are paper pieced. I just designed it in Electric Quilt and then cut my strips and sewed my blocks.
I did a post showing how to use magnets on your garage door. Last year I bought some polymer packing tape that works great for temporarily holding my quilts on different surfaces like the garage door.
Here is a photo of the quilt taken right after I made it.
It was so nice to have the river back to normal and.....my bell dry for pictures of quilts! I still had to be very careful as the water is still up to the wall and I didn't want to loose my quilt.
In the flood of 2019, the bell finally fell as it was underwater for so long. When the river level went down, my brother recused the bell and it is now down at our dad's shop. My dad loved that bell.
I love, love being an ambassador for Island Batik and the colors in the Amber Ale collection are beautiful! I knew right away what I wanted to make with this bundle!
This collection is no longer available but it would be very easy to find some batiks in similar colors. I am thinking it might be time to make another quilt like this in different colors.
This was the first time I received a batik that had metallic accents and the neat surprise was realizing I actually had the look of 2 different fabrics! One side has the metallic and the other is plain. I used the plain batik side for the center of my blocks.
Here you can see 4 of the blocks put together.
It was always so much much to use this Rosebud tree for photos of my quilts. Unfortunately the wind finally toppled this tree.
At our new home we have a beautiful tree that will work for taking photos. I took this photo early this morning.
Have you ever made a log cabin quilt? One of the first quilts I ever made was a log cabin quilt.
