What is it about half log cabin blocks and applique? I didn't realize until I started trying to think up a post title that this is the second half log cabin quilt I've combined with applique. This quilt is huge. My dd#2's best friend from high school who is an honorary daughter of mine wanted a big bed quilt in these colors:
As usual I had just the wrong shades of everything on hand and had to make a few purchases.
The center applique medallion was my favorite part of the piecing,
but the whole thing went together so smoothly it was hard to choose. I quilted one motif in all the red blocks (and the two green blocks that fit the pattern)
and a different feather motif in each of the green/beige blocks.
I probably spent more time standing in front of Terpsichore going "um" trying to figure out the next feather motif than I did quilting.
Here you go, Mr. and Mrs. G! Stay cozy!
