I can see how the block is pieced Sakar, but how did you do the 4 symbols and have you any close up shots???

When is their wedding ?? That is one  waaaay beyond the call of duty present, I do hope you and Martin are going !!

yes I do have some closer pics, but not here and now. I can show you some tomorrow evening, when we are back at home again.

I have just pieced all the churn dash blocks, then I measured their size and cut some background fabrics, on which I made the symbols with applique.

The wedding is next weekend.

That is fabulous Sakar.  Log cabin is a favourite of mine.
Life's too short for ironing.

Thanks for your nice comments!! :flower:

Yes, it's the first time that I have really sewn a LogCabin and I liked it. The pattern comes out from a book, I just modified the colours.

Yes, I quilted it on my home machine, but I don't like too much quilting. So I just sewed "stitch in the ditch" around all steps of the red logCabins. So it's simple and easy ;)
And it was a very light batting with just 2,5mm, it did quite well im my machine :)
