This is the final quilt I pieced for market–“My Log Cabin” by Joanna Figueroa. The quilt was pieced using a honey bun of Joanna’s newest collection, Butterscotch & Rose which is a delightful blend of traditional Fig Tree patterns and colors. Joanna’s signature cream that comes with the collection was used for the background.
Joanna’s quilter Diana did a beautiful job on the quilting…I could hardly wait to get to market to see her work–I knew with so much cream background there would be lots of her beautiful feathers to see!
This is a fairly large quilt, 71 by 71, with three different setting options included in the pattern. I really did piece this in a weekend…mostly. I received the fabric late Thursday afternoon, but didn’t start cutting until Friday morning. I individually cut the strips and put color combinations together for each log cabin which took a lot of time Friday. I sewed until pretty late Friday night then all day and into the evening Saturday. By late Saturday night all of the log cabins were completed and pieced into the quilt center. I had to wait for a little more fabric to arrive on Monday to put the outer borders on–and then it was on it’s way back to Joanna!
Love this picture of it on Joanna’s ladder…note to self…must find a quilt ladder like this one day!
And here it is at market! The first four pictures in this post are courtesy of Joanna. You can read her post about it (and see more beautiful photos of it) on this blog post.

That is just the most wonderful quilt Sherri! It's BEAUTIFUL!
That is gorgeous! So beautifully done. I love color, but cream is so warm & restful.
Beautiful! I've never seen a log cabin where one half was solid. I love the look it confers. Thanks as always for sharing your wonderful work.
Oh Sherri, this is SO gorgeous! I want to make one, complete with the feathered quilting. Wow!
Two words…"Simply Stunning"!

That is ONE BEAUTIFUL quilt. Great job from all that were involved in it's existence.
So pretty, I love it. You did a great job with this quilt. I really like the feathers in the quilting, just beautiful. Nice to know this pattern sews up quickly. I might just need to get one of those honey buns.
Oh swell, now I simply must have honey buns! My fabric addiction is expanding! 😀
I have a quilt ladder like that…
That's where I got mine. Terriffic service!

Love it, love the colors and the quilting is beautiful!
That is breathtaking! I love it!
I'm pretty sure you sew in your sleep! It's a lovely quilt. I have a very special quilt ladder handmade by my husband and children 14 years ago for a Mother's Day gift.
WOW! Beautiful! Love the colors!
Sherri – What a wonderful way to piece a log cabin so that on the cream side the quilting is so distinct!! I love it!! Kris
Gorgeous! Love your work.
I saw the pictures on Joanna's blog and fell instantly in love. It's beautiful, Sherri.
Wow…… speechless at the beauty of this quilt.
Oh so beautiful. It makes me want to run out and buy all the fabric that you used and sew sew sew.
It's fantastic! I never would have thought a log cabin could be put together so fast. The quilting is outstanding.

Sherri, you have to get the award for the fastest producer and they turn out beautiful. Love the log cabin and congratulations on the block in Modern Blocks Book.
Wowwww!!!. That's beautiful!!!, I love your work. Congratulations for this wonderful quilt.
I LOVE that quilt and had no idea that you made it. I think that line of fabric is going to be my new fave from Fig Tree – move over Patisserie! The pattern calls for a honey bun and a charm pack but you only mentioned a honey bun. ???
I have the pattern on my TO DO list and I will be anxiously waiting for that fabric release. Beautiful work yet again Sherri and the quilting by Diana is gorgeous!
It is BEAUTIFUL!! I love log cabins and this has to be one of my favorites 🙂
LOve this quilt! Log cabin is such a fantastic block….
Amy, a redeemed sheep says
The quilt really is beautiful. I use a ladder to display my quilts also and use each step to put another quilt on. It is a great way to display quilts. I found mine in someone's garbage pile.
I love this quilt and the quilting is breath taking!
That is such a pretty quilt! You are so right, the quilting stands out beautifully.
The fabric is wonderful and you did an absolutely beautiful job!

Such a sweet quilt this is.
Magnolia Bay Quilts says
Absolutely gorgeous! It's hard to believe all the fabrics came from one line of fabric. It looks so scrappy.
Another beautiful quilt!
