Log Cabin Quilt: Black Walnut

I just pieced this twin-size quilt in log cabin squares, of which I will never tire. Yellow and orange centers, ranging out to neutrals, bitter browns, and some black, this one was made with our native black walnut trees in mind.

Nice. I love the name. My folks have quite a few black walnuts trees on their property. Such beautiful trees; great for climbing, too. Squirrels are quite fond of 'em, too. Is their a squirrel anywhere on your quilt?

I just love your color schemes, and all of your log cabin quilts! This one is so perfect for fall.

Do you use a special technique for assembling the blocks, or do you do it all piece by piece?

What beautiful colors to put together! I'd watch for this in your shop but *alas* they get snapped up so quickly!

No squirrel, Dee.

Xenia Kathryn, I do the blocks assembly line--first all the centers, then all the next row, etc.

Ashley, it won't be in the shop for a while--has to get quilted first!

This one has a lot going on in the way of prints - I like it!


I've been cutting up fabric in log cabin-sized pieces to try my own.

Your designs never cease to amaze me. Like the other comments, I also love your color combos.

Great work, and that's a perfect black walnut brown!
The tennis ball-green nuts look so perfect in a bowl this time a year -- plus that motivates me to get them off my lawn before I mow.

it's beautiful. I love how you explain your patchwork.

Very pretty, Anna!

I don't know why, but this quilt reminds me of those gorgeous, speckled, brown mama mallards with a tiny, yellow duckling with orange bill nestled into its feathers.
