Star in the Cabin

My mother in law has a lot of great quilts, but this one was my favorite from our visit. What a great pattern! The whole quilt reminds me of Christmas. Not the colors, but the qualities. The star in the log cabin pattern reminds me of the star of Bethlehem and the manger.

It's super heavy and made of all heavy corduroy. Reminds me of cold weather and snuggling around the Christmas fireplace. Must have been hard to piece! By machine, I'm sure. I wouldn't want to try it by hand!

Even the backing is all corduroy! This thing weighs a ton but is very soft and snuggly. Do you like it?

WOW~!! This quilt blew me away! The log cabin part is a lot of work, and making that terrific star in the middle? Amazing!! Add corduroy to that, and you've got yourself a major project. But now it's a beautiful heirloom that will last a hundred years! I deal in antique quilts, and I know this.

Props to your mother-in-law! Did she make this?

Not only does it have a star in the middle, it has shadowing around the star! This is Amazing!!

This is amazing, wonder how long it took her to make it? Would be wonderful to lay under on a cold night!

I don't think I'd attempt even a corduroy placemat much less a quilt! It is truly amazing! Do I like it? Oh yes!
