Folded Log Cabin


A few weeks ago I got the urge to finish up this little wall hanging I started in a class with Sarah Kaufman, author of Folded Log Cabin Quilts.  Sarah is a neighbor and just a delight to work with.  I took the class early this year, but put it all away for months.  In September I had the luck to see Sarah do a lecture at the Sisters Quilt Guild.  It gave me the oomph I needed to get going on it again.   I only needed to do two more squares and put it all together.  I am quite pleased with the result. 048Once I did that, I had lots of leftover folded strips so I figured I'd just keep going.  I decided to make potholders with the rest of the blocks.  As you can see some of the pairs are fraternal rather than identical twins.  These are not yet backed or bound.049 050 051

I've already given a pair of these to my mom for her birthday, who confessed she had no idea how they are made.  It's my little secret, but actually, they are so easy to make!  The book explains the process quite well and also shows Sarah's talent with fabric and display.  She has the most creative hanging ideas I've ever seen for quilts.  Definitely worth a look.
