Design Concept
I have always loved traditional log cabin quilts, but wasn't interested in making one in a traditional way. This baby quilt was constructed like a traditional log cabin except that none of the blocks are square. Instead of using a rectangular grid I drew lines at various angles so the blocks became quadrilaterals of different sizes and shapes. All of the fabrics were hand-dyed and hand-painted, one-of-a-kind pieces. This quilt was made as a gift for my grand-niece, Emma Bryer.

How to:
Below are some basic instructions written for a workshop I taught in 2000, which will explain how the piecing was done. Click here for a higher resolution printable instructions,
