Rosie Quinlan's pattern - "Love is". The blocks were stitched several years ago (on Calico!!) and i finally put it together. I did not do the borders as the per the original pattern, opting to do a simple Black, White and Burgundy arrangement.
Above: Log cabin blocks purchased from the Mennonite Resource Centre in Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA on our trip earlier this year. Pieced by me as a mini quilt.
Crazy Log Cabin - Kit purchased from Material Obsession - Sydney. Pieced and hand quilted (simply) by me.
Both were made as part of our Patchwork Group challenge for 2011 - "Any thing/Variation Log Cabin"
My Dear Jane journey started in 2009 and after abut 18 months I was over it! My patience ran out, so the project was shelved, until mid 2011 Sandra at Foothills - Tecoma showed me a pic of a quilt she saw on her US travels which incorporated a "DJ" style block. After a light bulb moment and some pattern drafting - Jane's School house was born. Each school house incorporates the finished DJ blocks.
