Hello! This month's Island Batik Ambassador's challenge is Cozy Cabins. I made this quilt, Log Cabin Star, based on a block I designed a few years ago, Shadow Star. You can learn how to sew a 12" Shadow Star block in this tutorial from 2013: Star Quilt BOM #3 ~ Shadow Star
The challenge was to make a log cabin style quilt that was at least 36" x 36".
This photo shows the four center blocks, the diamond quilting beginning in the center, and a little peek of the backing fabric.
A close-up of the Log Cabin Star block.
This quilt is made up of sixteen blocks.
This photo gives a closer look at the London Fog fabrics. Aren't they just gorgeous? I love blues. I seem to have more blues in my stash than any other color.
Fun photo on my front steps. Because it's halfway between Halloween and Christmas you can see Santa's boot on the left and some Pumpkins on the right.
Another look at the quilting. I'm still having a blast playing with my walking foot.
Here's the white Aurifil thread I used to quilt the Log Cabin Star quilt. My thread stand has a flower my parents sent me from Hawaii. I like to have happy things around me while I sew.
I used the last little bit of the Hobbs Cotton Batting on this quilt. The combination of the Aurifil thread and the Hobbs batting quilt beautifully together.
A closer look at the green backing fabric. I had this left over from another project.
I bound this quilt using a combination of light blue fabrics. They blend together so well you don't even notice unless you look closely.
A pretty fold.
Because this is a log cabin quilt, I took a couple of glamour shots with my wood stove. It makes me think of a log cabin ~ rustic and warm.
Here's another angle. There's no fire going at the moment, but it will be in the 20's tonight. We'll be using it this evening for sure. I'll be sitting by the wood stove, under a quilt, cutting out 288 Island Batik fabric circles for another upcoming project.
