Dorothy's log cabin

Dorothy pieced this top to be given as a wedding gift for her grandson. There are fabulous fabrics in this - all pulled from the bright colored circles in the white backing/border fabric.    Finished size is 74 x 87.

Love the bright colors

There are daisies, dragonflies and leaves in that fabric, so we focused on that for the quilting theme.  I alternated a daisy and a dragonfly in the center of each log cabin block, then surrounded them with leaves.

The two outer borders are treated as one, with leaves alternating one side and the other.
