Rainbow Log Cabin - finished!

I am really pleased with the way that my quilting has emphasised the curves made by my lop-sided log cabin blocks. I had been disappointed that this did not show up originally.
As this is a present to myself, I experimented with using a fleece as the backing to make it extra snuggly. I experimented first on a journal quilt with some free quilting and found it quite hard work to move around - the fleece did not seem to slide around as well as I expected. However with the walking foot on and straight stitching it worked like a dream.

Happy Stitching!



  1. Hi Lin what a lovely quilt. Such lovely vibrant colours. :)

  2. Fabulous Lin! Excellent combination of fabric, so nice and bright. LOVE the way you quilted it, a perfect present for yourself! Enjoy!

  3. This is so beautiful! Is it your own design?

  4. You did a beautiful job on this quilt, and the quilting suits it perfectly. I would love to make one for my nephew who is getting married this fall... would you please tell me where you found the pattern? Thank you!
