Log cabins

 I have had a wonderful weekend finishing off my Kansas troubles log cabin quilt. I love it alot,
 I made a total of 25 blocks and each one was so much fun to put together, choosing different fabrics to cut into was the most fun. I have quite a healthy stash of Kansas Troubles fabrics and digging right to the bottom of my box I found some I had forgot I even had.
These fabrics were the very first collections I started to buy when I fell in love with quilting, I think I have made at least 10 Kansas Troubles quilt.
The star block was nice to make for a change instead of a plain red centre, they finish at 4 inches so quite fiddly to make but worth it in the end.
Yesterday I handed it over to my quilter to work her magic, I chose a lovely feather quilting design so I can't wait to get it back and get that binding on. There is still a few months of cold weather left so I'm sure it will get used straight away.

How did you spend your weekend? I hope you found some sewing time.
