It's beautiful Amanda Jean! I love the soft neutrals with all those bright colours. Log Cabin quilts are such a classic and it's so fun you can do so much with one block!

Love your log cabin! It's bright and cheery and a great scrap buster (what else would we expect?). :)

This looks amazing and I love it. Yay you!

Kathleen said...

That’s one beautiful log cabin! How do you figure out the yards of fabric - just curious?

Sherrill said...

That is GORGEOUS!! I did one years ago with tiny little blocks and ONE DANG BLOCK didn't fit and I tried twice to fix it and it's still laying around. :-( It'll probably never get done (so annoying)

Yvonne @Quilting Jetgirl said...

That is a very serious accomplishment; congratulations!!

That is just amazing!

My blog is private now, but by next week I hope to have two finishes. One is a quilt for my son I started three years ago! The other one is a Swoon quilt for my granddaughters that I started last year. I am so excited to be down to the binding part using your tutorial, of course. ;)

Terri Faust said...

That quilt is a knock out! Gorgeous!

Kathleen C said...

Spectacular! Really swell! Seeing your quilts always brings me joy. Can't wait to see it again after it's quilted and bound.

Angie in SoCal said...

A magnificent quilt.

ruthmary said...

Love the red 'fire in the hearth' center of each of the blocks, and the use of a mix of light fabrics instead of a constant muslin. Super job, and, yes, it is a happy quilt.

Mystic Quilter said...

Stunning quilt, and how good it looks with the snow.

KaHolly said...

It’s beautiful!

Sandy said...

Really lovely quilt top - what a satisfying finish! And a gorgeous photo, with the snow setting off your trademark clear colours.

What a beautiful log cabin quilt. The colors are beautiful. I love your Friday link up posts.... it's like a two day quilt show for me. I go through half of them one day, then half the next. I rarely comment, but I do see some beautiful things!
