Split Log Cabin, finished!

It took all winter, but it’s done!

Split Log Cabin quilt

I wish I had a better picture, but when you hang a piece of fabric that large on a sunny day, it becomes a sail. Nature has a hard time complying with photoshoots, especially in Michigan.

It’s finished dimensions are approximately 71″ x 80″. The edges wibble in and out a little (as they do on all my quilts), but it’s a negligible amount.

The cool thing about this quilt (and my other scrap quilts too) is that, because the top is made of the leftover bits of older things, I can look at the individual patches and ID which of my previous projects each came from. The backing’s plain old unbleached muslin, so it’s not as cool, but the top is like a squibbly, non-linear timeline of all I’ve done (since the last stashbust).
