Abe's logs

I LOVE log cabin blocks...
and I LOVE this little goody...only 11" x 14".
It is Abe's Log Cabin
using all one inch cut pieces!!!
from the Fit to Frame series: Set Twelve, by Lori Smith.
I used all reproduction fabrics and then hand quilted it with the
"Utility Stitch" ...aka the Big Stitch and a
Valdani floss-size 12 #O545
The color of this floss reminds me of santa's beard...

I did it as a sample for an upcoming class I'm leading
at Always In Stitches here in Ohio.
Join me if you can!

Happy President's Day
and keep on stitching!


  1. Beautiful Debra! I'm hand quilting with Size 8 Perle and my hands are getting really sore. What am I doing wrong?

  2. Someone gifted me with a bagful of precisely cut 1" strips. I really like this and perhaps will do the same to use them all up!!


Thank you so much for taking the time to visit!
