Based on one of teacher Terry Dryden’s favorite American quilt patterns, our online class Vintage Log Cabin introduces the stitcher to the idea of interpreting a quilt design with needlework stitches to produce the vintage look of the original quilts.
You will use 11 silk threads, both stranded and perle, while learning how to miter and wrap stitches around corners. Cotton floss and perle threads can be substituted for the silk threads (and different colors chosen). The teacher has included her own graphed alphabet for your use in creating the monogram center. The finished design is approximately 6 inches square which makes it a great size for many types of finished projects
