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.
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.
Love the bright colors

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