I have to say that the Log Cabin block is just about my favorite traditional block. I like Ohio Stars but I love Log Cabins. And I particularly love the Barn Raising setting. There are so many different options but after playing with the blocks -- this is the one that that always makes me the happiest. Check out all the different settings in the link to Big Horn Quilts.
This is my second log cabin and maybe my favorite. The logs finish at 1" and I made long before "latte quilts" were trendy. Actually, I made it long before I knew what "latte" even was! It was also quilted on my Bernina and I think the quilting overshadows the piecing - which is not what I wanted. I do love it and plan to do another one of these day. Nothing uses up those strips and bits of left over fabric than cutting logs.
So what's next? I'm wondering about one in all grays -- lites to charcoal much like my neutral quilt above. And I have to do one with 1" strips that finish at 1/2". I think those are unbelievable quilts and I want one. I've also thought about my Cherrywoods but don't think I can bring myself to put so much of those incredible fabrics in the seam allowance.
What about you? What's your favorite block or quilt pattern than you've duplicated over the years because it's just "perfect"?
I hope you're finding time to sew and create during these crazy, busy days! Jan
