How Many Log Cabins?

Just a quick little post before I go out to give the lambs their evening feed and hopefully listen to George ringing the bells for the Queen's birthday at the same time!

We had such a tiny, but perfectly formed, workshop yesterday that I was able to crack on with the log cabin border of my Medallion Quilt.

The method we use is foundation piecing

because they make such precise blocks

and we had to make so many (I haven't counted), but I really think it makes a lovely border

Louise, who is relatively new to quilting, said that it seemed very complicated - the way I had to keep measuring and adding and taking away bit.  I reassured her that if I had followed the instructions properly from the start, it would have been much simpler.  Also, looking at this picture, there seems to be something dodgy happening in the corners, so some remedial work may be necessary!


  1. Fabulous quilt. I have inherited an unfinished quilt. The patches are together but quilting not done. I am not as neat as the person who started it. Can`t imagine doing one as complicated as yours.

  2. I does look complex! Did you hear the bells whilst feeding the lambs?
