Log Cabin Quilts

This will be the first of several posts showing some of my favourites from the Quilt Show at the Melboune Craft and Quilt Fair. This was definitely the biggest show I've ever been to and I have far too many pictures for one post! (I did ask if it was okay to take photos!)

As soon as I entered the Quilt Show area, I was attracted by a display of new and old quilts featuring the log cabin block. I love the 'round' quilting on this one and the use of 1930's fabrics, of course.

The antique quilt on the right was made in 1876. I love the soft look of the faded fabrics.

Couldn't resist a photo of this gorgeous fellow. He is sitting on some more antique quilts. If I'd been on my own I'd probably have lingered and taken more snaps but a certain young lady was keen to keep moving!

More antique quilts coming in the next post.
