The loghouse quilt

Happy Friday, everyone! I am in a very good mood today, so I'm sending out happy thought into the blogosphere...

And I finished a quilt! I haven't had any finished in April, so I think May is off to a good start. Remember the giant log cabin I showed here a while ago? The one out of the Vintage Modern jelly roll?  I finished that one, but since the single block is so big, I can't really call it a log cabin quilt anymore. So instead, I proudly present the log house quilt:

I also thought that the single big block was a bit boring, and I did not want a square quilt, so I added another little log cabin block in the corner. The quilt now measures about 70 x 60 inches.

Here's a view of the back:

 For the binding, I took some leftover strips from the jelly roll.

I hope everyone is having a good weekend, I'm hoping to take a trip around the world. Check back for photos next week...

I'm linking up with TGIFF and crazy mom quilts!


  1. Yay! What a wonderful finish, Kerstin! You know I'm a sucker for asymmetrical layouts and I love what you did with yours. So glad you linked up with TGIFF!

  2. This looks fantastic and I love the back as much as the front!

  3. Oooh, this is so bright and friendly! I love log cabins, or in your case, your log house! :)

  4. I agree -- both sides are fabulous!

  5. Hi Kerstin! This is so beautiful and happy quilt! I love your design and the small block in the corner is great! Also the backing is perfect! x Teje

  6. Have fun with the Trip Around the World! It is very addictive... You have been warned! :-)
