Gwennie Inspired QAL: round 3

Hello friends. Pictured above is my quilt top for the Gwennie Inspired round robin QAL over at Humble Quilts' Blog. The 3rd round was to be log cabin-inspired, and I struggled with an idea for that. 'Decided on a version of Court House Steps, with the lighter colored "steps" at the sides and the darker colored "steps" at the top and bottom. 'Added a red square medallion to every corner to complete the log cabin look. You will also notice that my quilt top is now "squared off", as the center basket block is on-point. So far, my quilt top is now measuring a generous 34" square. What a fun QAL. Sending many thanks to Lori and all of the other ladies who are choosing our monthly round themes.

  4. I like the inspiration from the courthouse steps. Red cornerstones were a great choice!

  5. This was a great (and subtle, less obvious) way to add a log cabin border. I think it works with the simplicity of your basket center. I'm looking forward to you star border.
