I just love the format you use on the Connecting Threads patterns. One never has a reason to get lost  OR if they do, it is so easy to find your place.  Thanks for a great format.    Dorothy

Glad to be here.  Logs are my favorite.  I like to use the quick strip method. Can easily get a top done in a weekend.  I usually make bed size quilts. 

Look forward to getting to know all of you.

Sandy B, I stiched in the ditch both of them.  Each one differently.  The girls yes they a fairly different.  The yellow one went to the talker who chose yellow because at that time it was her favorite color.  The red one went to the other niece who is more loveable and cuddly.  Her favorite color is red.  They love their quilts.  The pillows were their idea.  When I told them I'd make them a quilt, they said "with a pillow too, right?"  LOL!

Donna, yes I was able to make the Log cabin blocks (17 in all) in one day.  I pieced them in another day.  The borders I did in two days total.  However, It took me 4 months to finish the quilts because I kept putting them away.  I wasn't too confident about quilting them.  Then after a course or two I gained the nerve and just finished them.  This quilt with cutting, piecing the log cabin, piecing the blocks, and adding the borders  can be done in three days 4-5 hrs. a day.  Sandwich and quilting would be another 4-5 hr day.  Then finally making the binding and closing the quilt another 8-10 hrs.  Not bad, it can be done in a week.  For experienced quilters of course, they can probably work faster.  I enjoyed it very much.  Cant wait till the next log cabin.

Ana-love your log cabins.  I always found that log cabins seemed to go pretty fast for me....did yours go well also?

Very nice,both of them.The girls will love them.

Ana, they are wonderful - one quiet, one in your face - does this match the characters of your nieces?

How have you quilted them - stitch in the ditch? tying?

My other Twin sized log cabin quilt.  These quilts we made for my twin nieces.

Sandy, sorry to be so long in responding to your post! I am not home and don't get on the computer all that much. One of my daughters had knee surgery the week before Thanksgiving and all appeared to be going well, but it became infected two weeks after surgery, requiring a second surgery and then she fell on it. She has two little ones and husband is in the Navy,so I am staying with her until she is able to be off the crutches and take care of the boys again. Still looking at being here another 2 - 3 weeks at least. And YES that appears to be the quilt as my memory serves. BTW..I really like your quilt top. Can't wait to get home and get sewing again. I have the fabric to make a cupcake quilt for my oldest granddaughter and a pretty flower quilt for my youngest granddaughter. I belong to another group that is doing a Birthday Block Swap,and have tried for a week to get one little 12" block done here but it is almost impossible to have time to work on it. My grandsons  here are 7 months and 3  years....need I say more? LOL

Hi Sharla I hope you do not mean the photo I posted below - it is not mine - it is the quilt mentioned in Kathy's post. it does look like an interesting one to make though and I love the colours. A group I belong to have made the following quilt top and I volunteered to do the quilting but am stuck on what pattern to use - curves or straight lines - I am not very good with free motion quilting.

Here is the quilt top pinned  and waiting.
