quarter log cabin pattern & new kit!

I have a new pattern to share with you!

quarter log cabin!
it's super easy.. and goes together very fast!
the key to creating the red & pink boxes is color placement
and i have kits of it in the shop!

the quilt was originally supposed to be in the summer issue of fons & porter's easy quilts... but then was moved to the fall issue... and in the end they ran out of space... and as a result the pattern is available online as a free download!  {think of it as a bonus for you!}

download the pattern

here is the original one i made
fabric is Martinique by 3 Sisters for Moda
pattern - quarter log cabin
designed by me
quilted by me
started on 10/24/2009
finished on 11/25/2009
quilt measures - 58" x 70"

since Martinique isn't available in a lot of shops anymore... i decided to make a new quilt to show you how the pattern can work in another line!  i even showed a sneak peek of me working on it last week!

it rained most of yesterday so i wasn't able to take photos...
and most of the ground is still wet...
so these are the shots i was able to get early this morning

Julie - Sorry you didn't make the print magazine, but thanks so much for the link to the website. I'm collecting ideas for a HS graduation quilt for next spring, and I've saved this as a possible pattern. Great work. Kathie L in Allentown
