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

it is funny how everything seems to have to be reinvented. Is this the quilt Kathy? Maybe they do not think it is a LC, even though it is put together in the same way?

I agree, hard enough starting out & getting to know names, let alone if they start changing them on us, lol! I think I get that mag, & the name sounds familiar, lol, will have to look for it!

I subscribe to Quilt, Kathy, but hadn't looked closely at that issue yet. It is a beautiful quilt. If they really are trying to get away from traditional terminology, what a shame. The new quilters of today need to know traditional terms too!

If any of you have access to the latest copy of Quilt magazine (Dec/Jan 2011) issue pages 34-35 there is a quilt entitled "Greek Islands". It is a lovely pastel floral 'log cabin' quilt. What I found most interesting is the fact that NEVER once in the description, pattern, or instructions is the referred to as a "log cabin" quilt. It is ID'd as a "One-Block Design". Not sure if the writer/publisher just knows that quilters are so smart we don't need to know its a LC or if they are trying to get away from that ( what some consider old-time quilting) terminology to draw in new quilters. The pattern uses a solid fabric in an inch narrower strip for the 2,3,6,7,10,11,14,and15 units to create a 'square' swirl. (There was an image like this posted in one of the tutorial segments for inspirational alternative ideas for this group.) Any, just thought some of you might be interested is this if you can get a copy of the magazine. It is a beautiful piece of work.

Linda, don't forget to let us see what you do to finish it up.

Sounds lovely Linda especially the charms too.

Was thinking of plain green for the back and 2 sm. borders of red and green to pull it together.
I am waiting for some Christmas charms to come and may tie it with those and hang it rather than use it as a throw.

Linda, that looks like it was a lot of fun to put together. Have you decided on backing?

How will you quilt it Linda?
