Christmas Log Cabin Quilt


Well the timing of yesterdays snowfall was at least good for taking pictures of Deanna’s Christmas quilt.   All the fresh snow made for a nice backdrop as the melting snow was starting to look pretty bad so I’m probably the only one here not complaining about it!  This is a cute quilt with Santa image panels and I love how she set them off with the log cabin blocks!  It took me some time to figure out how to quilt this one as I was really concerned about what thread color to use.  Deanna had no problem with me using a contrasting thread so after I decided on the Hollyberries panto I knew that it had to be green So Fine thread.


The backing was a plain black so I used green Bottom Line in the bobbin and love how it looks!


It’s –15’ with a –25’ windchill this morning.   So still waiting for spring to arrive here!
