Another Log Cabin
Here is a photo of (part of) the Log Cabin quilt I mentioned in the previous posting. I finished it yesterday and it has 12 blocks, each block being about 18" sq. The quilt measures about 60" by 75" and is the perfect "throw" size. I am planning on using a medium blue solid color blue for the backing. I am trying to use up some of my large basket of 2 inch strips for Log Cabin quilts and plan to start another one today. I think I will use a solid black center and call it an Underground Railroad Log Cabin. My Grandpa Atterholt used to tell me stories about how his family was part of the Underground Railroad in central Ohio during the Civil War. I was small at the time, and don't remember any details, just remember how much I loved his stories!! He was such a great Christian man, and I loved him dearly! He had a Postage Stamp Quilt on his bed...since becoming a quilter, I have always wondered who made the quilt, and what happened to it when he died.
