New Friends Presentation Old Block, New Designs

In my post about the pink and green log cabin sample I explained about our New Friends Quilt Circle's meeting featuring the Log Cabin block. I won't go over that again but my friend CM sent me pictures of our examples from the meeting to share on my blog.
Starting on the left side of the couch...
ND made an example of a Winter House and Trees little quilt that is set using a Log Cabin method. She got the idea from the most recent Quiltmaker magazine which had the pattern online, lucky for us. It is a darling idea and she said except for having to use a template on the roofs of the houses it was pretty quick and easy.
Next is CN's example of a folded Log Cabin which was an old method made "new" by using a method Foldy Stuff. It was interesting to +see a modern take on what was done 200 + years ago.
You see my sample above that and to the right of mine is CH's Log Cabin flowers. So pretty in 30's prints. Below that are blocks from member RB who is still in the process of creating her project which will turn the Log Cabin blocks into a star.
On the bottom right is a cute fall wall quilt by PN which she found on freepatterns.com. A quick and easy pumpkin themed project.

We also had several Log Cabin quilts for show and tell too...it was a great meeting and now we have some new patterns and ideas to keep us busy! LOL

I know Log Cabin is one of the easiest blocks to do, and I've still never made this quilt. It's on my hope list of "someday".
Thanks for sharing all the information.

Thanks for posting the photo. Ruth picked up patterns for me, but I was doing elections. I was so sad to miss this meeting. Log cabins are some of my very favorites. I love yours, Cathie.
