Good Thursday morning everyone!!!
I'm so excited to have another recipe for the Bakeshop and I just have to say that it was amazing fun to work with the beautiful reds, creams and tans from the Midwinter Reds collection.
I think that one of the first blocks I ever made was a log cabin, so this project was certainly a "remember when" type of quilt. The paper piecing is something that I have been doing on and off for quite a number of years and some of these same shapes can be found in a couple of my older patterns that will soon be almost ten years old.
This is one of the featured quilts that we will be using for a workshop that is coming up at the end of October. There are close to 90 Canadian gals coming to join us in putting together a few versions of this design. We will be doing miniatures framed in barn board, an appliquéd version and quite a few breakout sessions to teach beginners the log cabin block; a paper piecing session and also an applique session. It's going to be a very fun and busy two days, but so worth it when we get to see what everyone comes up with at the end of each day.
I hope that you enjoy the "bakeshop" version of Down on the Farm and I would love to hear from you if you get a chance to make this project.
