|Log Cabin Quilt|
by: Mary Jane Ruggles Dickinson (184801925)
Collection: Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum
A couple friends and I are doing Log Cabin quilts - reproductions of our favorites. We are at different stages.
One is cutting strips - looking at patterns, one is quilting and ready for binding. Let's just say mine is....lingering.
This is my inspiration quilt, with happenstance...
I saw it pictured in the McCall's Vintage Quilts Spring 2004. Little did I know at the time I would be living in Colorado and making frequent visits to the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum.
You can see the details and vivid color of the quilt on The Quilt Index HERE.
So about my Lingering Log cabin...
This is it - the blocks and all the strips after the movers decided to repackage my project bag.
Not only do they need ironed, but sorted...again by length and color.
I think it will be a snowy day project...
It is an assortment of repro fabrics - many eras - a true scrap quilt.
I also have a log cabin in my collection. I wrote about it HERE. I also showed some of the blocks - Proof they were neat at one point!

I'm not sure what I like more - the Sara Miller antique crib quilt picture or the block chart table! Well, maybe it's Sara's Courthouse Steps with blue centers. Or...2" blocks for a doll quilt...
Enjoy the free eBooks - and wish me luck ironing!
