In the summer of 2014, I started working on a Log Cabin quilt for my Dear Husband.
It was his first request for a quilt, and he chose the colors and general layout scheme. He has always had a thing for log cabins (the structures), and this may be as close as he ever gets to having a log cabin of his own!
By the end of November 2015, I was stitching down the binding. The quilt was finally finished in time for Dear Husband's early December birthday, but I didn't get an opportunity for photographs until last weekend.
Once again, my LAQ Cindy Braiwick did an amazing job on the quilting. There are several different designs throughout the quilt, but these pinecones are one of my favorites. And how lucky was I to find a backing fabric with log cabins?
This block has a wreath of oak leaves surrounding a dog's face. Hard to see, despite my best attempts at photographing. Dear Husband is a dog lover, so Cindy was sure to include Man's Best Friend in her quilting designs.
Dog bone in the quilting!
The full quilt, hanging from the balcony at our camp (the white diagonal strip on the bottom left corner is just the stairway railing). Dear Husband has been enjoying the quilt for weeks, and judging by the amount of dog hair it has already accumulated, so have our dogs!
