Ruth’s Log Cabin
Ruth made this pretty Log Cabin quilt, and when she dropped it off she told me in no uncertain terms that she did not like it at all. I couldn’t see what was wrong with it as it turned out very nice in my opinion. Ruth told me that this quilt was going to be a wedding gift, and someone else had chosen and bought the fabrics, and I began to see the problem. If I don’t love the material, I don’t love working on the project. A long time ago I made a store sample that was all brown and dark blue, and it is no secret that I love bright, bold colours. Making that dark quilt felt like a chore, so I knew where Ruth was coming from. We chose “Starburst” as a quilting pattern in a large size, Ruth wanted just light quilting, and I think it turned out quite lovely, and I hope the recipient will agree and enjoy Ruth’s gift.
