Some of you may remember that I started a courhouse steps log cabin variation on the Rhapsody Reality Blog while I was sewing on the treadle machine at the Bertie Marie cabin. I didn't know what would become of that, but I had some ideas spinning around in my head. We'll here it is. Mi Cabina is finished! I sent it off to JWD Publishing (Joen Wolfrom) today.

I designed this for the beginner, those who are looking for a fairly fast/fun project, and to make as a snuggle quilt. It measures about 71 x 82 - not huge, but not small either. While I put bears on the top of mine (are you surprised?) you could put any motif such cats, dolphins, trees, etc. - on yours. The pattern for this quilt - which is amazingly easy - but more planned that it looks - will be released at Fall Market. Maybe we'll all make one together? What do you think? Thanks to Marian Pierce who pieced the cabin blocks for me while I was teaching/performing in Nashville last month. I did the final assembly, applique and quilting.

Visit JWD Publishing to see the other patterns they have which include patterns by both Alex and myself.
