Island Batik Ambassador's Cozy Cabins Challenge

This month the Island Batik Ambassadors are making Cozy Cabins!  Anything goes as long as it's a log cabin.  I have made a few log cabin quilts over the years, so I wanted to make this one a little different.  We often see flying geese going through log cabin blocks.  This time I used a different triangle shape and only in half the block.  I love the zing the pink adds to my quilt!

This quilt is especially puffy because I used Hobbs Tuscany Wool batting.  I love the poof it gives to my quilting!  It's all quilted in various Aurifil threads too.  Blue, green, and pink.

In the blue I decided to quilt swirls so it looks line water.  The pinks got a stack of feathers.  

And the greens got this fun design that looks like a bunch of lowercase cursive E's in a row.

Here's a close up of the feathers in the pink.

I hope you get to quilt today!


  1. The colors and deaign catch your but then you see the quilting. It looks so tactile. I almost want to touch my phone so I can feel the quilting. I’m looking forward to hearing What the ambassadors think about the Hobb’s batting.

  2. Nice, Suzy! I like those pops of pink too.

  3. It is so fun seeing what everyone is this
