Charming Log Cabin Quilt

It is time for cozy snugness—even here in Tucson where it’s down in the 30s at night. To keep us warm, I’ve just finished making my first full-size quilt.



The fabrics are Amy Butler’s Midwest Modern. The colors are more spring-like than winter, but I’m okay with that.

By the way, Amy offers pattern corrections for those projects where she previously called for using Timtex™. You may want to check it out and update your patterns.



The pattern is Charming Log Cabin from Threaded Pear’s online store.



It’s not a fancy or elaborate quilt but perfect for a beginner. The finished size is 66”x88”—as Goldilocks said, “It’s just right.”



It turned out quite nice, thank you, and will be perfect for my young niece to snuggle under when she’s here at Christmas.

Well I guess this explains your absence in part... what a simply gorgeous creation! The fabric choices are wonderful - Amy Butler! - and the scalloped edges must require so much patience.
