Christmas Countdown - Day 5 - Serger log cabin table cloth

For this project, please click here for detailed instructions in a .pdf file. Make sure you have adobe reader on your computer. You can make this in a weekend on a serger! And yes it's perfectly legal to use a serger when you quilt.
The serger created a beautiful rolled edge....
and the back is completely "clean" with no loose threads or any need of a backing fabric!
Log cabin quilts either have a yellow or red block in the center. Story is that the center block represents either the light in the window or the hearth of the home. I made sure each piece had a touch of red.
The log cabin block lends itself to perfectly to this technique!
One weekend and you have the perfect gift for yourself or someone you love!

This is absolutely gorgeous! I would give anything if I had the gift of being able to sew and quilt. I have asked for a new sewing machine for Christmas because I want to try a couple of projects! Keep the inspiration coming!!!

Very neat. I love quilts and the stories behind the patterns. My favs are still hand sewn like my grandmother made, but who has that much time. I guess it won't be me.
