I have always loved traditional log cabin quilts, but
wasn't interested in making one in a traditional way.
This baby quilt was constructed like a traditional log
cabin except that none of the blocks are square. Instead
of using a rectangular grid I drew lines at various
angles so the blocks became quadrilaterals of different
sizes and shapes. All of the fabrics were hand-dyed
in one-of-a-kind gradations. This quilt was made as
a gift for my grand-nephew, David Bryer.
Below are some basic instructions written for a workshop
I taught in 2000, which will explain how the piecing
was done. Click here for a higher resolution printable
