This is my first quilt, so I followed the basic idea of the log cabin pretty well. But I didn't measure my seams well enough, so the squares are all different sizes. Now I know to measure, at least somewhat. But it covers my bed, and these are all my favorite colors. I like how it turned out, I just wish I could start using it now!



And here's the back fabric.

Your quilt looks great - I like how you incorporated the zig zag into the log cabin - a new dimension on an old pattern!

I just love this!!!!!!

You really captured the essence of antique log cabin quilts -- structure with just a smidgeon of chaos!

This is so great. It reminds me of a pillow my grandmother had when I was little. Nostalgia gives you extra points!
