Courthouse Steps

I love quilts in the Log Cabin category, this one is a Courthouse Steps.  Most of mine are small, then I decided a needed a larger one.  It did take a while to get all the blocks pieced due to other quilt interruptions, in the long run – so worth the time and effort.

Shown here – hung over the cupboard door for the Holidays, love the colors for the season.  I really enjoy featuring a quilt ‘over the cupboard door’ – that should be a decor category!    🙂

This quilt was featured in American Patchwork & Quilting, Issue 107, December 2010, page 110 – bonus for me it is the cover girl quilt, named ‘Small Steps’.

It is also beautiful across the foot of our bed or over a wing chair in the living room.  Multi-purpose is a winner in my book.  However I have made small quilts for a specific place due to the odd size.

I love living with quilts, add so much warmth to a home.

  1. I MUST add this to my TO DO list…it’s truly beautiful in a perfect setting! People often ask me what I’m going to do with the quilt I’m working on…sometimes it’s a “just for me” quilt!

  2. This is so beautiful! I love decorating with quilts, too. My husband is a hunter, so our home looks like a hunting lodge! I try to soften up the look by using a lot of quilts on tables, walls, etc. In fact, one of my son’s friends told him that our home looks like a “man cave” with quilts! LOL!
