Log Cabin Illusion


Over the last month, I have been getting quilts ready for the Modern Quilt Convention. This convention will be held in February in Austin, Texas.

One of the categories was to design a quilt that used a modern twist on a traditional block. My goal was to make a log cabin block using thread to create the light and dark portions of the block. I used yellow thread for the light area, and grey thread for the dark area. This quilt was extraordinarily difficult to photograph, but I hope you get the idea.
