log cabin flip

This is a string quilt made one block at a time. The batting and backing are layered, and then the logs are built up by stitching with machine, then flipping flat and stitching further logs. Log cabin blocks begin at the central square, usually red. Dark and light logs make up the strong design and with this method, the quilting just happens as the block is stitched. The blocks are joined afterwards by hand.

This quilt is now used at our cottage on one of the single beds in the new guest cabin.
