Highlights From Metro Quilt Expo 2022 #12
Log Cabin blocks are a tried and true traditional favorite with quilters. But if you take your basic log cabin strip and twist it, or turn it, or cut it at an angle you have something that is far more than its traditional roots.
Title: John Brown’s Bed Quilt Artist: Jean Anderson Quilted By: Self Pattern Source: Sunflower Pattern Co designed by Barbara Brackman “After vacationing on Mackinac Island I found this fabric in Rochester, MN called Mackinac Island by Moda. I found this older pattern (2000), thought it would work so wala! Doing the straight line quilting was a new adventure.”
Title: Shoreline Log Cabin Artist: Jean Anderson Quilted By: Clem Busik Pattern Source: Log Cabin Quilt book by Judy Martin “I purchased the book when it first came out – 2007. It was waited (with fabric) until I wanted to tackle it! This past 1 1/2 years was the time to do it. 2 weeks of cutting and 6 months of sewing – it was finally completed.”
Title: Antelope Valley Artist: Char Grant Quilted By: Clem Busik Pattern Source: Kathleen Moorhead Johnson, designer; Alexander ND “I took a class at the Minot quilt festival, taught by the designer. It was a full day class and most of us got a good start on one corner. I chose a jellyroll in browns and cinnamon that had a few dark strips (that were used out of necessity); my stash has been raided also.”
Title: Untitled Artist: Kendra Hull Quilted By: Clem Busik Pattern Source: Robin Pickens Quilt Patterns “The original pattern is a twin size pattern finishing at 75” x 92”. I re-designed the pattern to be a wall hanging at 48” x 55”, using the EQ8 computer software program.”
