Not Your Grandmother's Log Cabin

In May 2010, I took a quilt class with a couple of friends at Country Concessions in Cookstown, ON. The class was taught by Marci Baker. I finished the table topper on time to enter it into my Quilt Guild's show, Harvest of Quilts in October. My quilt won the Viewer's Choice award for 'other quilted item'! I received a certificate, ribbon and a cheque as well. Today I went to the Creativ Needlework Festival in Toronto for the day and used my prize money to purchase Marci's brand new book, "ABC 3-D, Tumbling Blocks...and more!". I hope to try some tumbling blocks and more cubes using Marci's patterns!! Here is the table topper on my coffee table:

The lovely handmade 'ribbon' that I received at the guild meeting! This is not your Grandmother's award ribbon either :-)!
