Welcome to my quilting journal. I enjoy expressing myself through fiber. Tiny pieces of fabric, vintage quilt blocks combined with hand stitches create my art. Keeping this journal helps me document my thoughts and progress. So glad you could join me, Happy Quilting.

Butterfly Log Cabin
Butterfly Log Cabin is number twenty-four in my 2012 goal of thirty AAQI quilts. This little mini quilt is 7 1/2 x 7 3/4 inches and is a machine pieced liberated log cabin. I started with my center feature fabric, the butterfly and then just added pieces of fabric from my bits and pieces bin that featured colors in the butterfly. I didn't know exactly where I was going, I just sewed until I reached a size that was pleasing to me. Some of this little quilt is hand quilted, some machine quilted. I added a metallic silver thread to the butterfly wings for a little sparkle. The binding is raw edge. Give liberated log cabin piecing a try. It's fun and you will always be surprised with what an interesting quilt will be created. Happy Quilting!
