Log Cabin Quilt

A finish... Log Cabin Quilt

I had only made one log cabin quilt in the time that I have been quilting and that has to be
more than 20 years ago.

I had this fabric (kansas troubles) left over from another quilt and wasn't
sure as to the pattern.
Then it hit me. I had the right amount of darks and lights. 

So this quilt was born.
It measures 50" by 62". A nice size for a lap quilt.

It all started last fall. I was offered a Schwinn bike. 

 Yes it's has been awhile since I rode a bike
but you know the old saying you never forget.  So I did a trade off.
The bike for a quilt.
I am really pleased how this lap quilt turned out and I know the recipient will be pleased.
So this Easter weekend I pick up my schwinn bike
 and my sister-in-law gets this gorgeous quilt.
I can't wait to go riding with Mr. Dh.

                                                   Happy Easter!
