My Dream Home

"My Dream Home" is the name the pattern I used to make a log house quilt.


The pattern can be found in Linda Brannock's book "Miss Jump's Favorites".  I completed the top (in fact, two tops with these same style house blocks) in 2008.  It had been hanging in the quilt closet ever since waiting to be quilted.  Mary Flynn machine quilted it for me recently using a Baptist Clamshell design.  I like it very much.  Thank you, Mary!

You can see this same house pattern in another quilt I completed in 2008.  It is called "Lone Cabin" and the pattern is by Gerry Kimmel and found in "Red Wagon Originals".  I have shown this on my blog previously.


The same log house pattern was used to make 16 placemats.  I kept four for myself and gifted in sets of four to three friends.  I used a fleece batting in the placemats and like how it gives them some firmness.


I think you get the idea that I like log cabins!

  17. A log cabin would make a wonderful dream home. But I love the cabins you've stitched over the years. I've made the Lone Cabin quilt myself. It was a great pattern. I can't believe how many times you've made that same house! Hence your blog name I'm guessing!

    Love the look of log cabins. This is a wonderful log home pattern, and you have certainly put it to good use.
    I did live in a log building for four months and decided I couldn't spend the rest of my life dusting the walls!! LOL

  21. Tell us how 'you REALLY feel' about log cabins ha ha! :) Love this!

    Having nothing to do with quilting but it reminds me of my log cabin: which was built by my grandfather and went under our Christmas tree :) We had houses and skater and skier and churches and a Lional train that puffed out smoke...and he built a fence to go around it all and a log cabin that went in the woodsy area where some bears and wild animals were displayed.
