Apple of My Eye in House of White Birches’ LOG CABINS TODAY


I was asked to submit designs of log cabin quilts with an “updated” twist for Log Cabins Today, published by House of White Birches.  Little did I know when I hit the send button, four of my designs would be selected.  Thus, a marathon involving getting those four quilts completed ensued sometime in October last year.  However, the trials and tribulations during the marathon are all forgotten now that the projects are reality in the newly published book.  I will be showing  my quilts featured in the book over the next few days… first up, “Apple of My Eye”!


The “apple” in the quilt is a modified log cabin block — see it, see it?


Then I used the Courthouse Steps (probably the best known variation of the Log Cabin block) to line an inner pieced border in alternating orientations for an interesting visual effect!


Quilting was done with Aurifil Mako 50 Cotton threads over Hobbs Tuscany Silk batting.  Fabrics are a mixture from collections Everything but the Kitchen Sink, Crazy for Dots and Stripes, Jinny Beyer Palette, and Pindot — all by RJR.


“Log Cabins Today”  has a total of 32 projects, and is available from Clotilde in print and electronic versions.  I had fun browsing through the other projects in the book.  I found a star quilt that I would like to make for myself… when I get some spare time (hahaha!)


Thanks for stopping by.   Come back tomorrow for another of my Log Cabins Today’s quilts!
