More Miniature Log Cabin Quilts

Technically this is a half log cabin as it only has logs on two sides of the center square. I chose to divide the center into two triangles, each a different red. Red in the center color most popular in a traditional log cabin quilt.
I chose not to quilt this quilt as the softness of the quilting stitches would interfere with the strong graphic image I have created. I will have it framed. I LOVE this quilt.

This is an off center log cabin - the same log cabin variation you saw in my black and white log cabin quilt. By varying the rust and turquoise fabrics it creates a more interesting piece of art.I made 8 blocks with wide rust logs and 8 blocks with wide turquoise logs. I then played with them and came up with this arrangement. The centers are silver lame. This combination gives the quilt a real southwest look.
It too will be framed rather than quilted.

I hope you enjoy this puzzle. Let me know how challenging you find it to be.
