A Log Cabin Dream

This pattern is called LOG CABIN DREAM.
I am
positive that all of you know this quilt pattern
as simply Log Cabin. .
Log Cabin Quilts are precious to us as they
symbolize our Home. So warm and loving.
So why not stitch one up!
 
Hello Everyone!
Thank you for your sweet comments and
concerns. They are truly appreciated!
And Thank you for following me.
Boy, when my eyes get better I will
have heaps of cross stitch work to
do!
 
Make a biscornu or a just a regular
pincushion. The choice is yours.
Log Cabin is adaptable to either.
And you can use the colors that I give or
use the colors that you choose.
 
THIS LOG CABIN PATTERN IS INTENDED
FOR USING UP ALL OF YOUR LEFTOVER
THREADS IN YOUR JARS!! For each block
just make sure that you stay in the same
color family.
 
FRONT
 
Back
 
PLEASE READ AND UNDERSTAND ALL
BEFORE YOU START.
6 cross-stitch blocks form the basis of the pattern.
The blocks are surrounded by 5 narrow strips
or bands around these blocks. The final large
outside strip is stitched with #3806 Lt Cyclamen Pink.
Then the narrow last strip is stitched in
black. Use black floss to stitch the front and
back together.
On the narrow strip with the white  that you see,
there are no symbols. I intended for this color
to be stitched in white.
As in a quilt all of the centers in each block
are stitched in red.
On each block beside the red centers your colors
should be stitched with the lighter color beside the
red and then graduate out with the medium and then
dark of that floss color.
