Jennifer from the Woolen Willow..

I had this scheduled to post and it didn’t…so here it is now…IMG_1889Do you know Jennifer?  She and her Sister and Sister In-Law (I believe )are the magic behind Primitive Quilts and Projects!!!  Not ME!!! So many people think this magazine is mine…They see Primitive and think that it must be mine…I am sorry but NO WAY do I have any time or energy to be putting out a magazine 4 times a year!!!   Now I do have projects in them but I do not own or run this awesome magazine…so hopefully that clears it up and I don’t get anymore credit for it!

Well back to Jennifer…she also, besides running the magazine, has a shop in Williamstown WV and a pattern company… We have many of her patterns that we have kitted in our shop and we also will be doing Log Cabin Garden shown behind Jen here….as a BOM…again…look for it later in the year…when we get out stuff together… Her website to visit the shop…The Woolen Willow

I have a pattern to give away for Log Cabin Garden from Jen…now lets see what can we do for a give-away….OK…how about this…I have a confession…I have never made a “true” log cabin quilt! right??? what is wrong with me??? I have made courthouse steps and so on but not a true log cabin….How many log cabin quilts have you made?  Are you a loser like me? or have you made many?  Comment to win Jens pattern…maybe to redeem myself I will do the sample for this BOM???

my best…LB

    I have made several log cabin blocks to put in a quilt, but never a complete log cabin quilt.

    Log cabin is my favorite quilt of all. Add wool and I am in heaven. Would LOVE to do this quilt.

    I have also wanted to make a log cabin quilt which is why i have a set 3 rulers that shockingly still have the tags on. Maybe if I won the pattern it would help me get the tags off the rulers and make me use them. LOL. It’s amazing how many different ways a log cabin can look. I get the Primitive Magazine and have done so since they started. There’s always beautiful projects.

      I think I am a loser too. I have never made a log cabin quilt. I made few log cabin pillows at one but I don’t think that qualifies. This pattern maybe just what I need. Being from West Virginia, I just want to say I am very proud of those girls for putting together such a great magazine that is now well known in the quilting world. Love the magazine and their shop…so inspiring!!!

    Well, I have made only one log cabin quilt (acutally a wall hanging/tablecloth size). The barn raising layout. It was one of my very first quilts. I have never even thought about making anotherone.

    I have made a couple log cabins and one courthouse steps quilt. I’d love to give this one a go. It looks great!

    It just so happens that my very first quilt was a log cabin done as a “quilt as you go”. We used it ’til it was almost worn to threads. I so enjoyed making it and using it that my 2nd quilt was also a log cabin but done in the traditional pieced top and then quilted. I especially love Jennifer’s log cabin with the wool appliques.

    Well, at least if I am a loser for having never made a real log cabin quilt, I am in good company. : )

    I made one log cabin quilt – the third quilt I ever made. I had a stencil of a little house that I put in the center block which was red, and the cabin strips were greens for the darks and creams for the lights. I just finished a top for a courthouse steps quilt that is similar to a log cabin.

    My very first quilt was a log cabin from Eleanor Burns’ book. I’ve since done many traditional and ‘liberated’ log cabin quilts. What I like most is the variety of settings you can choose from to create a unique design.

    I’m the same – I have made log cabin blocks but never a quilt from them. Gosh that is a gorgeous pattern!

    I am thinking that the quilt I made is also like yours, even though it was said to be Log Cabin, but then again I have a terrible memory and could have made it as a Log Cabin. All I know is that it is beautiful. Thanks for your shop, I love what you do and the Primitive Quilts and Projects!!

    I have never done a true log cabin quilt either, so don’t feel bad. We can all be losers together. I made a runner with a few blocks, but that doesn’t really count. I would love to make this one, as it has applique as well. That’s makes all quilts better!

      I’ve made one, but I guess it is technically court house steps! I love these, though, and am working on getting my leaders/enders organized so that I can create these blocks while doing other things. And I so love the addition of the qpplique on this one!

    I absolutely LOVE sewing log cabin blocks and have made several quilts over the years……something so satisfying in the production of the blocks and also a great way to use up those 1 1/2 strips left over from other projects that seem to reproduce in the middle of the night when the lights in the sewing are off!

Gretchen, one of the sister’s taught me how to rug hook when she lived a short time in MN. I have been hooked ever since. They are a very talented pair of sisters. One of my favorite parts of the day is visiting your website Lisa, and looking to see what’s new on the NEW tab. Love your wool applique especially and have made many wool mats designed by you. I am keeping my fingers crossed in hopes of winning Jen’s pattern!

The binding had worn out on his quilt so I just finished new binding. I have been busy making Courthouse Step baby quilts from 30’s reproductions….I really do need to keep one for myself even though my grandchildren are older..maybe keep it for great-grandchildren!

    Two log cabins over the years–one is very “tired” at this point the other has a lone star in the center and is queen size! hand quilted—now THIS log cabin has much more to love–cats..crows..and lovely flowers–It might just have to be the third!!

  50. sandy Avatar

    I have really made a log cabin quilt. It was long enough ago that it is actually hand quilted with perle cotton and fits a double bed. It had about two inch wide strips though but it’s still a log cabin!! It’s still one of the best ways I know to use leftover scraps not matter what version of the pattern you use, court house steps or whatever.

    My first quilt was a log cabin. I was so unsure of my quilting abilities that I would come home from the quilt shop throw my fabrics in the wash, dry them, iron them, then cut 2 1/2 inch stripes….thinking I would never be able to do anything but log cabin….I made everyone in my family one….I soon ventured out and have done alot more than log cabin…but recently I started to cut our 1 1/2 inches of all my fabrics for another log cabin…There is something so homey about this pattern. I would love to win this pattern. PS…I have just started to learn how to applique wool onto cotton backing..through Lisa’s BOW…How about that…Still learning something new everyday.

  52. Loris Mills Avatar

    I love log cabins…and I must say, especially the one hanging behind Jen! I have made straight on log cabin but a few courthouse steps…love that variation. I would absolutely LOVE to win a pattern to make this one! The appliques are wonderful! Thank you for throwing my name into the hat!

I do love log cabin quilts, and particularly love this one with the wool applique, so cool.

    Log Cabin is actually one of my most favorite quilt patterns. The first one i made was for a wedding gift for my son’s friends. It was queen sized and contained 1400 pieces! It was all from my scraps and very small yardage. Oh, how I wish I had kept that quilt for myself and made them something else. Any pattern with a log cabin in it always gets a second or more look from me.

    Sad to admit… My first quilt attempt was a lap sized red, white and blue log cabin which unfortunately I never finished due to impatience of youth. Over the years, I have thought about this ‘Project’ but it still lies in the UFO box. And there it will probably stay since it was not my best attempt at sewing. The Good News is… now I have more patience and quilting/sew skills that I would relish to start a Primitive Gatherings BOM :o)

    While I can only claim 1 log cabin by you “rules”, it was my first real quilt. A wall hanging that still hangs over my fireplace mantle today…10+ years later. I have done several lately with a version of court house steps that make the cent block look like it is on point. It is one of my favorite settings, even though it is a bugger to layout. I just got week 4 of th wool bow… It is amazing. I love this block! I am currently caught up and have all e blocks done for both the bow and freebie! I was going to take a break to meet some other deadlines, but you are tempting me!

    I’ve made one only – king size. Took ten years to complete! I began when I was pregnant with my daughter and gave it to her for her 10th birthday. It was the first quilt top I ever made and was hand cut with scissors – didn’t know anything about rotary cutters and rulers back then! My daughter is now 21 and that quilt lives permanently on her bed so I consider all the work it took as well worth the effort!

    I have never made a log cabin square or a quilt but would love to.
    I’d like to start with Jennifer’s Log Cabin Garden. I’ll be looking for it when it’s a BOM.
    Thank you!

    You can add me to the loser column. I have one small table topper that is an adaptation of a log cabin, but I have yet to quilt it. Now if you had asked about applique. . .

    I like log cabin blocks and the variety of settings the block offers. I have one miniature log cabin quilt. Would love to make a queen sized quilt. Thanks for a chance.

    I am a beginner and have done many quilts yet, but the Log Cabin is definitely on my to do list for the near future.

    I started with a small one…then became hooked. With all the different colors you can make one for every season or even to make your rooms. Just love making them

    I love log cabin designs and have a whole file folder full of different settings. However, I have only made one LC quilt.

    The log cabin was the first quilt I made (Quilt in a Day) many years ago! I have made about 6 log cabin quilts. They are so versatile as to the pattern arrangements.

    I’ve only made one, but boy, was it ugly! My Daughter kept it (since it was my very first quilt), and I just hate to even look at it now…we all started somewhere, right? And, no quilt police…

    I haven’t done a log cabin quilt either, but it is one of my favorite patterns. I do wool applique, so this pattern would be great for me!

    I wish I could say that I had made a log cabin, but not yet. I have noticed this quilt in posts from market and really like it! And it is definitely my favorite magazine. Thanks for the opportunity

    One of my first quilts was the original quilt in a Day log cabin by Eleanor Burns. Believe it or not, the directions had you tear the strips of fabric! I did a couple more after that when I found out about the rotary cutter and mat. I really enjoyed each of them and use a different setting for each one.

    I’ve made two: The first was years ago, in pink and green, and i tied it. My daughter uses it as a beach blanket! The second is much nice–I made it for her bed. But I’ve never embellished or added applique to a log cabin-that would be pretty. I also hope to make a courthouse steps some day. Thanks!

    As a “young married” in the early 80’s and living far from home in Rockford, IL, I took a class at a local quilt shop. We made a log cabin Christmas tree skirt.

    What a gorgeous pattern, I would love to win it. I have not made a log cabin quilt yet, I have made a block and some types of variations, but never a true log cabin. I love log cabin quilts, if I win, I will have to make this one!

    I have made one log cabin wall hanging and 2 quilts. The wall hanging was my very first quilt and fell in love with the pattern. I have admired Jennifer’s quilt, I just love the applique.
    Enjoy your day,

    Easy question -easy answer— I’ve made two log cabin quilts. Each given away when my kids were exchange students for the summer. one to France and one to Mexico. In fact – the french quilt was the first quilt I ever gave away. I learned a ton of lessons about making quilts and letting go of them, about sharing your love of quilting with others…. I am a fan of Jennifer and the magazine… Tons of talent in both.

    I have made one. In 2010 a tornado went through and I made log cabin for my niece who lost her home and another (jelly roll) quilt for friends who too lost their home. They were both awesome to make in a hurry and to give them something to help brighten their day.

    Two. The one was in reds, greens and whites with little black seed like shapes appliqued on it. Looks like watermelons and is the perfect picnic blanket.

    I love the look of a log cabin quilt, but have never made one. I would be willing to try something new though and the pattern would be a perfect place to start 🙂 On another note, I am a huge fan of the Primitive Quilt and Projects magazine. It always has a bunch of amazing projects and ideas.

    Well if you are a loser than I will join your club. I have never done a log cabin quilt. As beautiful as they are, I have no idea why I have never done one. I guess I need to get in on that BOM when your shop is ready to start it!

    I too love the log cabin quilt. i think i have made 5, but would always love to make another.

  138. barb Avatar

    Log Cabin was the first quilt I ever made in 1987. Since it said “Quilt in a Day” I went with it! Glad I have branched out. Still do like the variety of patterns that can come from one pattern.

    I love the log cabin but I have never ever made a quilt. As I sit here and think about passed projects I have made log cabin place mats for a house warming present. Primitive Quilts and Project is one of my favorite magazines. Thanks for the give way (I’m keeping my fingers crossed)

    Someone told me starting out that log cabin was the easiest quilt to do and that I needed to start with that. That was my very first full sized quilt. So I have made exactly one. :o)

    Just a wall hanging size one but this pattern looks very fun. People that do them say they are a bit addictive.

    One queen size, in the early 90’s, made with not so good fabric so it didn’t last long as I washed it to death. Live and learn. 🙂

    This pattern could be the start of something wonderful because, I have never made a log cabin quilt either.
    Sunflowers Around the Courthouse Steps was the second quilt I started (still a UFO after 9 years). Thanks for the opportunity to win this beautiful pattern.

  148. heartsease57 Avatar

    I have made one, this was one of the first quilts I did. It is huge, a king size and I had it custom quilted. It is on my bed. I started it as a retreat project and from start to binding, took almost a year (6 months to piece). This one was done in the recommended colors and fabrics from the retreat organizer (Jane Quinn from Bozeman, MT), but if I were to do another one I would choose totally different colors. That being said, the quilt is beautiful and fits my bedroom perfectly.

    I have made lots of Log Cabin quilts. It’s one of my favorite patterns. I can’t say how many thought since I get the tops done but still have to sandwich them up (soon I hope). Getting ready to make up another one that is called the Watermelon Quilt by Black Mountain.
