Been in a quilty mood, so here’s a log cabin quilt I finished today:
Who says you can’t quilt a humble log cabin quilt fancy?? Molly, this one’s for you, if you are reading this….
I started with a stencil by Anita Shackelford– one I used last year on that Carolina Lily quilt, then freehanded in between, repeating motifs used elsewhere in the quilt.
See those straight lines in the first picture? Yes, those were freehanded, too. LOL! Also, In the blue sashing is my fancy oak leaf border design. Overall, this was a very fun quilt to do!!
Hugs from Carla
Carla, it’s scrumptious! I love it!!
Holy smokes – that’s incredible!
WOW, WOW and ummmmm WOW!!!! Awesome Carla.
What beautiful quilting!!! I have been wanting to do a log cabin quilt with fancy quilting – you have me some great ideas!
Fabulous, Carla! You are a wonder!!
Carla, that is drop dead gorgeous! WOW!
Gorgeous Carla! So much for the lowly log cabin idea.
You are on a roll! It is beautiful. I love blue and yellow quilts anyway, but the quilting just makes this quilt fantastic.
Oh wow, Carla! That’s awesome! You need to get some quilts into the major shows! You’d be racking up those ribbons and awards!
I love your style! You’re one of my favorite quilters. This is stunning.
OMG!!!!!!! Wow Wow Wow!
Oh ……..my…………it’s already all been said but let me add another WOW WOW WOW for both the log cabin and the sunflower quilt.
You have your own style that really girlys up a log cabin. Another real beauty!
Good Morning… thank you for all your lovely comments about the two quilts. You all are so very encouraging! Actually, I find quilting to be very therapeutic for me. Health issues with my spine sometimes limit how often I can quilt. I love to quilt, so I always enjoy when I can do it.
OMG! This is to die for quilting. It just transforms the log cabin into a work of art. I’m Jealous!!!
It’s all been said, but again, WOW! Your quilting just makes that quilt sing!
Carla, you’ve raised this waaay above the level of a “common” log cabin quilt! Just gorgeous.
WOW — now I’m going to dig out my UFOs and find that log cabin quilt!! It’s unbelievable what you can do with the quilting — you continually blow my mind!! Barb
just drifting by — It’s gorgeous!

What a beautiful quilt! I love all the detailed quilting! 🙂
I’ve made a few quilts and recently hand quilted my last one. Any tips for getting those fine stitches? Specific needle size, type of material used etc? (Mine seemed somewhat hard to get the needle through and hence i ended up not getting the quality of detail i was wanting.)
What a beautiful and inspiring quilt!
Carla, May I use the top photo you have posted on April 29, 2008 in a bog post I am planning about new inspiration for Log Cabin quilts. I would reference you and provide a link to your site/sites.
Hoping you will say yes, Gina
