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.

  5. June 26, 2013 at 2:04 pm

    I have only made 2 log cabin quilts but I do really love the pattern.

      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.

    My very first quilt was a log cabin quilt. I very carefully followed the lessons in Eleanor Burns’ Quilt in a Day Log Cabin. My success with that first quilt inspired me to keep going
    and learning.

    My very first quilt was a log cabin. I have made little ones but want to make a bed size one in my favorite country colors someday.

  11. June 26, 2013 at 2:05 pm

    Well, at least if I am a loser for having never made a real log cabin quilt, I am in good company. : )
    I have used some log cabin blocks as a round in a medallion style quilt, but I’ve never made an entire quilt of log cabin blocks.

    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.

  16. June 26, 2013 at 2:08 pm

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

  17. June 26, 2013 at 2:08 pm

    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 made just 1. I give most of my work away, this went to a postal worker on her retirement. It was a beautiful blue & white, with red stars at the corners. I smile at the thought of my friend opening this when she retired.

    Well, I’m almost right there with you Lisa…..I have MANY logs, but NO Log Cabins!!!!!!

    And I have many STEPS as well, again, not made up into the Court House Steps! One day the steps will meet the Cabins!

    And I have met Jennifer and her Sisters – they are wonderful gals….

    Take care and keep on keeping all of us busy stitchin’!

    I must admit that I have only made log cabin blocks but have yet to put them together in a full size quilts. They are one of my continuing UFOs. I do love this wool one — it could turn out to be my first completed log cabin quilt (and what a beauty it will be. Thanks for the chance to win this pattern. Love the magazine.

    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!

    • 25 Laura Kissel
      June 26, 2013 at 2:14 pm

      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!

  24. 26 Lisa Angel

    I have made a few quilts with the log cabin block, the last being Broken Star by Laundry Basket Quilts. It is a test of the piecing skills!

    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!

    June 26, 2013 at 2:15 pm

    I have made two log cabin quilts. My beginning quilt class had a log cabin quilt as the project and it was great. Just completed a curved log cabin quilt for a wedding quilt in purple and greens. Love them.

    I have only made log cabin quilt but I hope to make more one day. I have Woolen Willow’s BOM all wool quilt, the one with the sheep on it. 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!

    Lets see……I’ve made one bed size (hand quilted no less), a couple wall sized and several minis. There’s at least one more in me sometime!

    I have only done one true log cabin.

    June 26, 2013 at 2:16 pm

    Absolutely no losers if you love quilting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Log Cabin quilts are one of my favorites! My first Log Cabin was made in 1992 for my son, I even hand quilted it!!! 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! One of these days I am going on a road trip to your shop!!! love it love it love it!!!

    I’m new to Quilting, and I haven’t yet made a log cabin Quilt! I want to add it to the list of “to do” items, which incidentally is growing exponentially! I think I have to quit my day job, but how will I pay for everything I want to quilt! lol

  42. 45 Bonnie
    June 26, 2013 at 2:22 pm

    I have not yet made a log cabin quilt but I recently bought two patterns. I own the full set of fat quarters of your fabric Little Gatherings and have been trying to figure out if it will work for either pattern . I would love to win this pattern. I subscribe to Primitive Quilts and Projects.

    I absolutely love log cabin quilts, but I must confess, I am also a loser and have never made one. Wouldn’t this be the perfect first log cabin quilt to make??? We could do it together Lisa! The pattern is just my style.

  45. 48 Terri Karasch
    June 26, 2013 at 2:23 pm

    I would love to win that pattern! I have made one traditional log cabin (queen size) and am always planning to do another, but haven’t gotten to it yet. Primitive Quilts & Projects is an awesome magazine; I’ve let all my other subscriptions lapse, but this one I’ll keep because I love everything in it! Jen and her sisters (?) do a wonderful job with this publication.

  46. June 26, 2013 at 2:23 pm

    My first bed quilt was a Log Cabin and my first wall hanging was a log cabin arranged to look like a Christmas wreath… So I guess I have already paid my dues! Thanks for the clarification on your companies and for the giveaway!

    I have made couple they always turn out beautiful but after each one I say never again ha!!!

  48. June 26, 2013 at 2:24 pm

    You definitely need to make a log cabin quilt! Log cabin is one of my very favorites and I have made several. The very first quilt that I ever made was a king sized, log cabin. King sized? What the heck was I thinking?

  49. 52 Carolyn
    June 26, 2013 at 2:24 pm

    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. 53 sandy
    June 26, 2013 at 2:25 pm

    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.

  51. 54 Miriam Leech
    June 26, 2013 at 2:25 pm

    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. June 26, 2013 at 2:26 pm

    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 absolutely love log cabin quilts but have I confession, I’ve never made one. This one is beautiful and just my style. Lisa, we could make it together!!!! Thanks for the chance to win the pattern. I’m hoping some day to visit your shop, I always see you in Des Moines at the AQS show and manage to find a thing (or two) I need to take home with me!

    • June 26, 2013 at 2:41 pm

      I have a gold and black log cabin quilt all ready to be quilted on a long arm. the other log cabin is in the process of being built, several of the blocks are done. I love Primitive magazine and did the flower pot & flowers in wool and it hangs in my kitchen. Never thought of applique on the log cabin quilt but would love to win this design. It has all the primitive things I love.

    I have made a couple of log cabin quits for two of my boys but I love the way she has added the appliqué. I love the magazine and dream about what I am going to make. I did realize you have some kitted. I will have to look at those.

    Funny story….my first quilt/sewing project was a long cabin quilt that you were to finish in one session….you started in the afternoon and sewed into the night….I was so nervous as I had never done anything like this, did not even know how to thread the needle etc. I did finish but was a nervous wreck…I have it hanging in my bedroom to remind myself to never give up…since then I have done two smaller Log Cabin projects….Cindy

  69. June 26, 2013 at 2:52 pm

    I’ve made 2 log cabin quilts and have an odd assortment of blocks that didn’t make it into either of them. I was thinking of making a third, with really skinny logs, but haven’t moved on that. One of these days…

    June 26, 2013 at 2:52 pm

    June 26, 2013 at 2:54 pm

    I have only made log cabin blocks as part of BOM’s, but would love to make one. It’s such a versatile block that can have so many different patterns by varying the colors. I’d love to have the pattern !

    The very first quilt I made as a teenager was a log cabin – two, in fact, to go on the two twin beds in my room. I did not quilt again until 3 years ago when I was much, much older than a teenager! I would love to do a log cabin quilt again, now that I know what I’m doing!

  73. 77 Jody
    June 26, 2013 at 3:02 pm

    June 26, 2013 at 3:03 pm

    I made one king sized Log Cabin with Eleanor Burns, original pattern. I also made two with her Star Log Cabin pattern. I did one miniature Log Cabin with half inch finished logs and also a Courthouse Steps in the same size.Yes, I love them and they are fun to do. Lisa, you should do a miniature!

    I have never made a Log Cabin Quilt yet, but I will be incorporating some of the different Log Cabin quilt blocks into a cowboy quilt I’ve designed for my dad! I have always loved the way the Log Cabin Quilts turn out…they are so beautiful! I would love to win this pattern and try my hand at it, as I have plenty of fabric stash to use as well! I would definitely try doing it scrappy and with coordinating fabrics!

  76. 80 Rose Jeter
    June 26, 2013 at 3:11 pm

    My first “official quilt” (first one was a panel) was a log cabin made from the Eleanor Burns quilt in a day series. I do love log cabin quilts, and particularly love this one with the wool applique, so cool. I have several issues of the magazine, always happy when I can spend an afternoon drooling over the new issue with a cup of coffee or tea. Always drool over your stuff too, though.

    My very first quilt block was a log cabin but I have never made an entire log cabin quilt. It is definitely on my “to do” list!

  79. June 26, 2013 at 3:17 pm

    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.

  80. June 26, 2013 at 3:19 pm

    I must confess also I can’t remember ever making even one true log cabin block quilt. I would be proud for Jen’s log cabin garden to be my first.

    I saw a great log cabin in a store while on vacation. I bought it and got it made 4 years later. It was so big(108×108) that I never quilted it. I will never make a another large log cabin quilt-maybe a little one. Nina Christman

    I have made one that needs quilting and a smaller one with houses in the middle. Also if a sampler quilt counts, it has a logcabin block in

    Lisa, I made 6 for Christmas one year for nieces and nephews ( 26 years ago to be exact and tied) and swore I would never make another. This new one looks different and neat with the appliqué thought. Teri

    I love log cabin quilts and always admire them, but have only done the log cabin wall hanging in your Prairie Women’s Journey One. Maybe I need a complete pattern to be challenged enough to make a complete quilt. I have seen some nice ones with applique added.

  94. June 26, 2013 at 4:03 pm

    I have started one but didn’t finish it. Well, actually I made a Christmas Wall hanging that was a center medallion surrounded by 12 log cabin blocks…I guess that counts!

    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)

    I have made one log cabin quilt. It is one of the first quilts I ever made and I took a class where we put our strips in a bag and whatever we pulled out was what we used next. It was a fun way to learn to not over-plan my quilts or agonize over fabric placement. Now I love scrappy quilts!

    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!

    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.

    June 26, 2013 at 5:10 pm

    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!

    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.

    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 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.

    The very first beginning quilt class I took taught the log cabin quilt. I have to tell you that it turned out pretty wonky since I didn’t know a thing about accurate cutting or piecing! In fact, I’ve never finished the binding since it is so out of kilter. Today I use it as cover for my sewing machine – I can’t ever get rid of it since it was my very first quilt and wonky or not, it was fun to make and holds a cherished place in my heart!!

    Log cabin pattern? LOVE it! I’ve made one wall hanging and 2 placemat-sized civil war repro projects. Haven’t used log cabin with wool though, yet. I love Jennifer’s magazine and her patterns, as well as those from Prim Gatherings.

    I have done 20 or more log cabins. I love them! I’ve been called log cabin Patti almost from the first of my quilting time.

    I must confess, my first quilt ever is a log cabin. But sadly it is still a UFO, but maybe now that you got this out of me I will pull it out of its hiding place and finish it. Love the new look of her log cabin.

    The first quilt I made was a log cabin in 1990 and have done several since then…so many ways to make one and adding wool is perfect. I am addicted to wool since taking a class from you and would love to win the pattern to have the wool designs. I get the Primitive Projects magazine and want to make everything in them…love Jennifer’s magazine and all of the projects in them….hoping to win the pattern 🙂

    I have made two log cabins – one traditionally pieced and one paperpieced. I have also done several Christmas table runners out of scraps – yea – to get rid of older Christmas Fabrics – so many ways to set them:)

    June 27, 2013 at 7:42 am

    I have made one. Just a couple of years ago. I didn’t want to for a long time thinking that it would be too much hassle trying to get all those logs to fit just right, but it wasn’t bad.

  186. 192 Lisa LK
    June 27, 2013 at 7:46 am

    I made a small one for my daughter out of very bright fabrics. Making a more traditional one for myself is on my quilting bucket list.

    Let me count the ways! I have made 1flannel log cabin, 1 miniture log cabin, 1 baby log cabin, 1 log cabin with applique, and 1 traditional log cabin! But, I have never made oe with wool applique. they go together fast and it s ne of my favorite blocks.

  189. June 27, 2013 at 8:35 am

    I made 3 Log Cabin quilts for each of my kids for Christmas a few years ago. 2 queen size and 1 king size, they loved them.

    I’ve made six real log cabins.

    I made a pretty little log cabin wall hanging for my mom. It’s done in cottage-y greens and creams and geranium reds. My sister and I redecorated my mom’s bedroom after my dad died; we painted it a soft green, and made “girly girl” draperies with little pink rosebud fabric, and made a sweet cottage quilt for her bed. The room is lovely for a lovely lady. She keeps the room in such a state that you’d think a teenager lived there! Sometimes there are clothes on the floor and jewelry all over the dresser …. she had to learn to start over again on her own after dad died, and while she misses him daily she has found a group of “girls” to go to the movies with, go out to lunch, take casino trips, exercise with… we got a new mom when we lost dad! So when I think of log cabins, I think of mom building a new home and new life in her wilderness without her lifelong mate. (And the first thing you see when you go in her house if you look down the hall is my little log cabin quilt – she was touched that unmade it for her new room).

    I have made a few log cabin quilts, but gave most of them away as gifts. But it sure is a great way to use up

    those left over strips. Would love to make more.

  194. June 27, 2013 at 9:05 am

    I don’t think i’ve made a log cabin quilt either as nothing comes to my mind. I guess I will need to put that in my bucket to work on!

  195. 201 Donna W
    June 27, 2013 at 9:36 am

    I guess I belong in the “loser” category. I have not made a log cabin yet. I talk about making one, but just haven’t done it yet.

  196. 202 Sue P
    June 27, 2013 at 9:41 am

    I have made log cabin blocks for a quilt but never a whole quilt of log cabin blocks…it is on my to do list though. The pattern looks like fun

  197. 203 Beth Esser
    June 27, 2013 at 10:03 am

    I have made one queen size log cabin quilt all out of homespun. I had decided that I was going to make a quilt for each of my 3 girls and Sara got the first one. The other two eventually got theirs but they were not log cabins!

  198. 204 Janice
    June 27, 2013 at 10:42 am

    I have made a cute little baby quilt using 30’s fabric with a scalloped edge. I hand pieced and quilted it. One of my favorites!

  199. 205 Ginny Munson
    June 27, 2013 at 10:58 am

    I love the Log Cabin block! I have made 2 Log Cabin quilts, but dream of doing many more! Thanks for asking!

    June 27, 2013 at 11:18 am

    I have not made one yet, but i do have the fabric ready to go.

  201. June 27, 2013 at 11:27 am

    I’m a looser too. 🙂 I did finish a wonky log cabin, but it’s just a few blocks surrounded by grey. It’s not traditional and doesn’t count :). Loving your blog and work.

  202. 208 Barbara Willems
    June 27, 2013 at 11:32 am

    I must be a loser like you. I have never done one but I would like to some day soon. Maybe I will find the time and then I won’t be a loser any more.

    June 27, 2013 at 11:46 am

    We all have things on our “bucket list” to do. I have done 2 miniture log cabin quilts and love them; however, although I have done quite a bit of wool work, I have never done a true penny quilt. I do have it on my list to do this year. I love your stuff and look forward to the new. Take care, Michelle

  204. 210 Cheryl jensen
    June 27, 2013 at 12:18 pm

    I am sort of a loser too…. I have made a small wall hanging many moons ago. My goal is to make a king size one for the bed. Darn job gets in the way of my quilting plans. More plans then time right now….. Love your work .

  205. 211 Fran Bianchi
    June 27, 2013 at 12:45 pm

    I too have never made a log cabin quilt. I have made log cabin blocks for gals in friendship circles, but never a quilt. Jen’s quilt is lovely and I like the appliqué . I like log cabin quilts because there are so many setting
    options and different looks you can achieve.

  206. 212 Elaine S.
    June 27, 2013 at 12:59 pm

    June 27, 2013 at 1:09 pm

    I have made log cabin pillows, a few log cabin blocks for a block exchange and that is about it!! Never, ever have I done a whole quilt!

  208. 214 Debbie
    June 27, 2013 at 1:17 pm

    a log cabin machine quilt-as-you-go in reds and greens was my very first quilt. i love the pattern as it is so very versatile.

    I love log cabin quilts. To me they represent family, hearth and home. I have not made any log cabin quilts yet, but I bought an antique quilt top that I need to quilt and display in my home. I subscribe to Primitive Quilts and Projects and love this magazine. Thanks for a chance to win this pattern.

    First quilt book I ever got was for a log cabin and I still haven’t made one.

    Does one block count?? Seriously that is as far as I have gotten

  214. June 27, 2013 at 3:39 pm

    I think I’ve only made one – and it was small – and paper pieced.

  215. 221 Kathy Reed
    June 27, 2013 at 3:47 pm

    June 27, 2013 at 5:20 pm

    I have made 1 log cabin quilt, and log cabin runner. They are REALLY fun to do!! You are gotta try one for sure.
    I would adore winning this pattern!!

  217. 223 Susan S.
    June 27, 2013 at 5:33 pm

    Log cabins are fun. I have made 2 full log block quilt and 1 half log block quilt and I am working on a wonky log block quilt. Log cabins are my favorite block for using up scraps.
    PS no matter who wins happy sewing!

    I have not made a log cabin but have several patterns. Sure would love to do this one. All that wool. Love. Also love her magazine.

    Thank you for the giveaway chance.


  219. June 27, 2013 at 7:41 pm

    Many log cabins for me, it’s long since been once of my favourite patterns. I’ve made everything from small wall hangings to King size bed quilts.

  220. 226 Gloria G
    June 27, 2013 at 8:17 pm

    My first log cabin was made from a pattern from Primitive Quilts and Products. Have been getting the magazine since their beginning -love it.

    Have a log cabin quilt that I am using the seam ripper on because my quarter inch seam was off. So haven’t conquered that yet but this pattern is adorable

  222. 228 Kristy
    June 27, 2013 at 10:06 pm

    I have made one log cabin quilt and one tablerunner………so I am almost a loser like you….just kidding. I have been having a yen to make a really big log cabin lately. I have a feeling it will happen before I know it.

  223. 229 Charlotte
    June 27, 2013 at 10:24 pm

    I have made one large log cabin quilt and several small quilts/table runners/ wall hangings. They are fun because of all the different layouts you can do.

  224. June 28, 2013 at 6:08 am

    Years ago I made a log cabin quilt for my son. I also have a quilt in progress, small steps by Jo Morton from a magazine. This pattern can be time consuming as you need to keep trimming to keep the size correct. I would love to do this pattern, couldn’t get any better combining log cabin and wool. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

    Years ago I made a log cabin quilt for my son. Currently, I have a log cabin quilt in progress. It is a Jo Morton pattern from a magazine. The pattern is small steps. Fun to work on but time consuming as there is a lot of trimming involved in order to keep the measurements correct. I love the pattern you are showing. Log cabin with wool applique, couldn’t get any better. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

    I have made four log cabin quilts; but never courthouse steps. I’m sure I’ll get to those eventually. So many patterns, so little time!! I am very pleased to say that I am friends with Jeni and her sisters Gretchen, Sally, and Judy, and of course her mom Mary and dad George!! I love them all and are very happy with their success. I have seen this quilt up close and in person and it is BEAUTIFUL!!

    June 28, 2013 at 9:01 am

    not only have I not made a traditional log cabin, but not any of the other zillion settings either…a block here or there in samplers (that have not always turned out so well in my earlier days)…I think this pattern could change all that! Thanks for the chance to win it!

  228. 234 Holly Howard
    June 28, 2013 at 9:05 am

    even though log cabin was my mom’s favorite block, I have never made one myself. I have appliqued on a lot of them for various people, her included.

  229. 235 Michelle
    June 28, 2013 at 1:50 pm

    I have made 2, one king size and a lap

    I have only made one twin size log cabin quilt BUT have used the log cabin technique in many quilts. Hope that qualifies for some kind of credit. Thanks for thinking of us once again, Lisa.

  232. 238 Sally King
    June 29, 2013 at 6:30 am

    I’ve only done 2 on my own, but the block is a favorite for guilds and I have made group blocks for lots more. The one behind Jennifer in this picture may just be my favorite of all! BOM, LB????

  233. 239 Bonnie Larson
    June 29, 2013 at 7:15 am

    I love the symmetry and variety of the log cabin blocks. I have only made a few as I have to confess, I love a lot of other blocks and styles as well….. Thanks so much for sharing.

  234. 240 Cheryl Keown
    June 29, 2013 at 7:28 am

    I am a LOSER too. I love the log cabin quilts but never made one yet. It it is on my to do list. The one behind Jen is simply beautiful with the wool applique. LOVE IT!!! My passion is wool applique, would love to do that quilt.

  235. 241 Cindy
    June 29, 2013 at 9:01 am

    Lincoln Logs from back in the day is as close to a log cabin that I have ever done…lol
    The quilts looks great and would I would certainly enjoy stitching one for the 1st time, especially with wool applique. It’s always fun to try something new.

  236. 242 Janet
    June 30, 2013 at 7:23 am

    So far I’ve made 4 log cabins – my first was my 2nd quilt – a California King that I hand quilted … now THAT was a labor of love! I suspect I’ll make at least that many more down the road …

  237. 243 Stacy McDaniel
    June 30, 2013 at 9:38 am

    I love the versatility of the log cabin quilt, and have made several. A star log cabin, 2 weavers log cabin quilts, one for a friend, one with batiks (very fun) and several quilts that included log cabin blocks in them. Give it a try girl – you can do it! 🙂 Hope you are enjoying your summer.

    The very first quilt I made was a log cabin. I also recently made another one that’s still currently just a quilt top. I’m trying to think of an applique design to add to the top, before I quilt it.

  241. 247 Lonna McQuaid
    July 1, 2013 at 1:43 pm

    I absolutely love the simple lines of the log cabin block and that it can give you so many different looking quilts. I started making one several years ago using 4″ blocks, but haven’t finished it yet. This has inspired me to get working on it again… thank you, Lisa!!

  242. 248 Diane Schwarz
    July 1, 2013 at 3:14 pm

    I have made small projects—-Big ones? They always come out lopsided, so I need new “stuff” to try and make it better!! The quilt shown is super delicious looking!!!! My style–flowers–love it. I have made small logs to put on cards. See you in LB.

    Funny you should post about Log Cabins today because today I am finishing up my blocks for a traditional Log Cabin quilt. A fun quilt block to do. Can’t wait till I get it to my quilter. It is such great combination of colors; Reproduction fabrics in blacks and creams and center block is a gold star. Lovely.
    As always, looking forward to your booth in Long Beach

    I also just love Log Cabin Quilts, one of the first quilts I ever bought at a flee market was a Log Cabin. but I have only made 2 of them. One was a blue jean quilt and the other was made from 30’s fabrics. They are really beautiful and need to put this on my bucket list to make one for myself! Thanks for the chance to win the pattern.

  246. 252 Crystal Knight

    July 3, 2013 at 8:58 am

    I have made log cabin blocks to go into a sampler quilt. Otherwise I have not made just a log cabin quilt. I think I need to add that to my list. Thanks for the giveaway.

  248. 255 Deborah from Valpo

    July 3, 2013 at 2:48 pm

    I have made recently “raising the barn” but no log cabins! I want to t make a Christmas quilt of log cabins, I could see that I could maybe make one out of Jen’s pattern – Lord knows I have enough Christmas fabric I been saving!!
    And we all know the old saying ” the one who dies with the most fabric wins”!!!! Anyways Happy Fourth to everyone out there!!!

    July 4, 2013 at 1:09 am

    I’m right with you, Lisa! Have never done a whole LC quilt……have done small blocks for pillow covers, but never ventured further.

  254. 262 Laurie Shain
    July 4, 2013 at 5:13 pm

    I have made many, many log cabin tops, several whole quilts….back in the dark days, I pieced tops and they were taken to the next house to be hand quilted…..ugh. Like being in a sweat shop! I have made several for family since then but my favorite top is a small scrappy top. I put 1 1/2 inch strips in paper bags, one with lights and one with darks. I pulled them out of the bags so they wouldn’t be “matchy” and sewed the blocks. I still love that small quilt and use it every day. It reminds me of many of your wonderful small pieced quilts.

  255. 263 Sharon Cervenka
    July 5, 2013 at 9:45 pm

    I have only made one log cabin quilt, not large, 24 inches by 24 inches…however I love it very much…planning on trying the courthouse steps version. Thanks for the opportunity to win such a pretty pattern.

  256. 264 Terri Hogan

  260. 268 Kelly K
    July 10, 2013 at 10:03 am

    Zero! I have made a couple blocks for different quilts, but never a full quilt! So, this would be a great one to start with – it’s a beautiful quilt and the applique would make it alot of fun!

  261. 269 Kathleen C
    July 12, 2013 at 7:22 am

    I’ve made three-the first was green and pink about 22 yrs. ago! Then a queen size for my daughter and a small lap quilt for myself. I’d like to do a courthouse steps some day.
    I always enjoy your blog and your quilts. The giveaway pattern is lovely. Thanks very much.

  262. July 14, 2013 at 11:55 am

    I have made a few, it is one of my favorites and so versatile with so many variations. With your Wool and Needle flannels you could make a wonderful one.

  263. December 13, 2013 at 5:54 am

    These are in fact great ideas in about blogging. You have touched some pleasant points here.

  264. 272 Diane Schwarz
    January 5, 2014 at 12:40 pm

    Me do a whole log cabin quilt!!!!
    I have done squares that go into a project–some have been paper pieced!!
    Nice try—but, the wool one shown is just the style that I love. Let’s give it a try in 2014 — everyone!!!
