Midnight In The City Quilt

 I've always had a fascination with
Log Cabin Quilts
The simple
"picture frame"
style of block 
is usually easy to spot,
and I've seen hundreds of variations.
 That's why I was 
taken by 
delightful surprise
when I had an up close view
Midnight In The City
by Linda Matteotti
at the
AQG Show
 As I approached this quilt, I was first drawn to Linda's 
impressive machine quilting
and bright color combinations 
set against the black background.
 And then, as I looked even closer 
I noticed the entire quilt was composed of
Log Cabin blocks!
Can you see this repeated image in the quilt?
Well done!
Even the stars in the sky
are set at the edge of the 
Log Cabin square.
Linda wrote:
"Inspired by *Flavin Glover,
this quit is made up of 224 blocks.
I designed it using EQ Software.
Each log cabin block is 
foundation pieced."
is known for her 
pictorial Log Cabin quilt designs
that often feature homes. 
And Linda's original design
won an Honorable Mention ribbon.
