Streak of Lightning

I've been slowly working along on a behind-the-scenes log cabin series. I'm exploring some of the traditional layouts possible with log blocks.  I have a number of bags full of color-sorted 1 1/2" strips, so it's very easy to jump into a new block set on a whim.

I currently have nineteen log cabin quilts in my collection, but have made more than four dozen through the years, as well as countless log runners that I've sold in boutiques and at the shop. Log cabins are by far my favorite block :)

Just finished this one, a 'Streak of Lightning' example, and added it to the log cabin roster.

More to come ...

Streak of lightning is a neat setting. You are inspiring me to dig into my 1.5 strips! Love your maple leaf header. So lovely! Kelley Secrest

A great pattern indeed. The classic blocks are the best, I think. This is a beauty!
