As mentioned in yesterday's post, I didn't want to publish pics of the finished quilt until Paul had seen it, as it didn't seem very fair. Well he has it now and he delighted!
I called the quilt "My log cabin has a swimming pool" because of the central square is usually red to represent the 'hearth' in the centre of the home. Paul wanted blue - and so my log cabin has a pool in the centre of the home instead!
I really enjoyed the wonky log cabin, and the zigzag is definitely striking!
I don't know if you can see from this picture, but I chose to quilt the squares in a spiral pattern running from the blue central block out to the edge of each log cabin.
I used a variegated grey thread because I wanted it to be quite subtle. I thought it worked well with the circles on the back of the quilt too...
So the finished piece is 70x60 inches - which is more than big enough to keep Paul's tootsies warm while he plays on his PS3! If he can eject Maisy from under it first ;)
