Log Cabin Challenge

The Covered in Threads guild challenge for 2014 was a log cabin quilt. I love log cabin quilts but I don't particularly love making them. They always seem to take longer to construct than I think they should!

I decided to make an off center block and after laying them out a few ways, I went with this following pattern because I felt like it gave this traditional block a circular effect.

 Here's the finished product.

I used a circular pattern to quilt it.

I brought this quilt to our winter retreat for show and tell. 

 I wasn't the only one. A few others had finished their log cabins for show and tell too!

The 2015 challenge is a tessellation quilt. Several of us had to look up the meaning of tessellation.
