QUILT INFO

I used an Electric Quilt applique design and modified it slightly to make this basket block.

ACROSS THE WIDE MISSOURI BLOCK 5

A big block and one I didn't find especially enjoyable to stitch.  Mainly because there is a base house underneath the logs.  I had to stitch the house in sections sewing the logs on before another base section went on.  There are two more blocks with log houses but not as big or as complicated as this one.


I am back working on the snowman row quilt.  I am close to finishing the last of the applique preparation.  Still a lot of stitching to do.

I am looking forward to quilt market pictures and seeing new things!

  10. The log home has depth around the door - sounds like there was lots of 'building' to making it ;-) Results look great so your effort paid off.
    Love the detail around it.
