This is my second pattern published in the book Log Cabin Variations by Annie’s Publishing. It is called Albuquerque for its Southwestern look. The fabrics are from the Timeless Treasures New Java Blenders collection which has 25 beautiful colors. These are the ones I used:
Lucious, right? The marbled texture is amazing on the quilt blocks giving them depth and interest.
My friend Lisa let me quilt it on her long arm machine and I kept the motifs simple. Log cabin blocks are so fun to make with endless design possibilities! By changing the colors on two of the strips I created the interlaced effect.
These photographs were taken at dusk so the colors are very dark.

Above is the photo from the book where the colors appear more subdued. It measures 49″ x 61″ making it a great lap quilt or a fun wall hanging.
I loved making Albuquerque and writing the pattern. Log cabin blocks were the first ones I made when I began quilting so they hold a special place in my heart. Let me know if you make Albuquerque or Natural Elegance – I would love to see your version of them!
Have a wonderful weekend,
