    My introduction to log cabin quilts and paper piecing

    This does not your traditional log cabin quilt; but nevertheless ... according to the Fons and Porter pattern, they are all log cabin blocks. LOL! It took forever to make this queen size quilt. It had roughly 1,300 individual pieces. I think it took about 5 months to complete from start to finish (I made this back in 2010). The pattern is an older F & P pattern (from 2008, I believe). Would I make it again? Probably not. Even with the foundation paper, piecing 1" strips was very cumbersome and time consuming. (Can you tell that I'm not the most patient of people? Hahahaha!)

          It is a beautiful quilt. But I understand your not wanting to make it again! I don't understand the need to foundation piece any log cabin block, though.

                  Oh my Gosh!! Congratulations!! What a beautiful quilt and how determined you were to make it! One inch strips.....I have never tried them for a WHOLE quilt! Kudos to you. AND paper piecing, well I am new at paper piecing so this quilt would do me in. I have always loved the LC quilt (it was the first pattern/quilt I ever did). All I can say is "WOW"!

                    A gorgeous quilt. I would not have the patience to sew all those narrow strips together. I think the strips for the log cabin blocks I made were 2" wide. No paper piecing needed.

                      Beautiful quilt and worth the effort - hope you keep it for yourself.

                      Love log cabin quilts but make my strips wider as I would go nuts using 1" strips. Even made a queen size one that was only one huge block - came in a kit with many coordinating fabrics.
