A Traditional Log Cabin and a Liberated House!

I have made a start on the boys' quilts and they will be at opposite ends of the quilting spectrum.  Gman's is based on a very traditional quilt block, the log cabin (although I think the dramatic red/black colour scheme makes it modern looking) and Waif's will be a "liberated", free pieced (no measuring, no templates, no perfect quarter inch seams - eek!) village quilt.  Here's pics of each so far:

First four log cabin blocks in various layouts:


First house for Waif's village:

  1. Well...Heck Yee-Ow....what a great FIRST!!! Ok...let's see 50 more!!!

  2. Are the quilts finished yet? I would love to see the results.

  3. I am ashamed to say that neither quilt is finished yet...but hoping to get them done and dusted early in 2011, so watch this space!!


I love comments! Please don't be shy :-)
