I love traditional quilts and designs. That is no secret. And Log Cabin Quilts are a particular favorite. I love the repetitive piecing, the various ways that the use of fabric can impact the design, and then the many layout options.
For this quilt I had predetermined the layout - a traditional Log Cabin Quilt layout called Fields and Furrows; diagonal lines created by the use of light and dark fabric (which look like the rows in a freshly plowed field), and so I set out to make Log Cabin Blocks with light/solid and dark/printed fabric.
For the light fabrics I have solid fabric (Robert Kaufman Kona Cotton in shades of white and off-white including the following colorways: White, Snow, Butter, Natural, Sand, Ivory, Oyster, Bone, and Cream). The printed fabrics are a selection of fabrics from stash, some older and some recently arrived. Traditionally the center of the Log Cabin Block is red to symbolize the heart of the home, instead I have chosen to work with a number of solid fabrics that complement the color palette of the printed fabrics.
Ready for basting and quilting.
