|Backing for Log Cabin blocks 'City Streets.'|
This quilt could be called a map quilt. I'll probably name it 'City Streets.'
Last week I finalized my Log Cabin block quilt arrangement that was stalled for a while. I had to keep asking myself, 'What is the intent here? Log Cabin blocks have something to say and just what is that?' I decided movement was important and color could work that out.
I was thinking Log Cabin blocks mean houses (to me) and what if this was a city and you had streets and apartments and houses all lined up along sidewalks. So that helped me figure out the final placement so it made sense.
The bigger blocks are 7" finished with the small blocks at 3.5". I roughly followed Tonye Phillips' pattern 'Welsh Folded Log Cabins.'
I chose to machine piece, instead of hand piece and arranged the blocks my own way.
That's the latest 'Map' installment.
Have a good week.
