Crazy Log Cabin Quilt


OK we have a daughter Kate who loves artsy things. Kate has a graphics design degree. She also teaches pre-school. She is into drawing and loves photography. She has decorated her house with photos taken by her, black and white, and framed...do you get the picture here? I had to come up with something to make her! I decided this design for a quilt! I started it yesterday. I am going along. I will throw in some red..when I do I will show you..it is a red and black print..Chinese print..because Kate has a tattoo..a symbol meaning peace or faith or something..lol..and I wanted to put it in her quilt..I wanted to make it personal. I have to say this is a fun quilt to make. I put off making it because I thought it would be stressful. The only thing is I lost one block somewhere in my small apartment!!! I made 12 blocks so far, and yes..one is missing..I was putting them on the design wall and Woody kept climbing it..I kept fighting with him to get off of it..and I have no idea what I did with one block!! Now I like primitive things..so this black and white quilt will be done fast and out of the house..not my style..but I urge everyone to try different things..change is good...The name of the Pattern is Kwik Crazy Log Cabin.

love the B&W in the log cabin! It's fun to see patterns emerge depending on the placement of the predominant colour :-) I'm sure the red will really "pop"

I sure like the B/W version, better than I liked it in color! That makes the pattern really pop - now I want to try that too! LOL ---

Did you make the rag dolls? I like them and wondered if you had a pattern.
