Editorial Reviews

Review

I love Judy Martin s Log Cabin Quilt Book. I love the quilts and the pieced borders. As usual, your instructions are precise, complete and easy to follow. --Helen Weinman, Heartbeat Quilts, Hyannis, MA

Judy Martin s Log Cabin Quilt Book offers endless creative possibilities for this traditional block. While I enjoy using simple sets for my log cabin quilts, I am excited to mix and match Judy s design elements to create a design of my own. This well-organized book allows me to put my own touches on the finished design. --Mary Wilberg, Quilted Treasures of Rogers, Rogers, MN

The quilts in your new book look even more exciting than I've come to anticipate from you! Your extraordinary sense of color and style makes it fun to look at the book and dream of what I want to make next. Moreover, your reputation for providing accurate, thorough instructions makes the sewing as much fun and stress-free as the dreaming. Thanks for giving the quilt world such great new variations of the log cabin pattern. You've outdone yourself once again! --Connie Doern, Creekside Quilting, Clive, IA

About the Author

Judy Martin has been writing best-selling quilts books since 1980, when she co-wrote Log Cabin Quilts with Bonnie Leman. She has been closely identified with Log Cabins ever since, usually including some in every book she writes. Her most famous Log Cabin design is Colorado Log Cabin, which has been copied so many times, most people mistakenly think it is traditional. Judy Martin has designed and published nearly 1000 original patchwork patterns. She is particularly noted for the accuracy of her patterns.

Judy Martin has done it again - she is the queen of log cabin quilts. Her latest effort - Log Cabin Quilt Book - includes sixteen new log cabin variations. And, I do mean variations!

In one version, Judy pieced log cabins - not the blocks - the houses! And if that wasn't special enough, she includes a stair-stepped inner border of logs with an outer border of dark squares! Her border treatments are as inviting and creative as the original log cabin quilts themselves.

And, her sense of color is amazing! She has done each quilt in totally different fabric choices. A traditional log cabin block becomes an art quilt when she adds her personal spin.

Including celtic center blocks or stars - and choosing batiks - elevates these quilts. They are just screaming to be displayed on a wall - but with her dynamic borders, would do any bed proud.

This is Judy's favorite quilt block so she has the construction down to a science. Follow her techniques to create perfect log cabins - no "wonky" blocks allowed! "Wonky" is her word, not mine - but we all know exactly what it means - even if it hasn't made the dictionary yet!

The quilts in this book are so inspiring that it is difficult not to skip right to the photos. So do that first - and then, take the time to read every word. Judy is first and foremost a teacher so she not only tells you how to do each step, she tells you the "why". And, when it is all said and done, that is why her books are always best sellers - she knows what she's doing!

Format: Perfect Paperback
i'm always impressed by judy martin's creativity and invention. her color sense is amazing. in this book, she shares her latest variations of the log cabin design as well as a few previous examples.

most of the quilts include directions for two sizes--wall and queen. some are also given in twin size, a few have instructions for only one size, but at the back of the book there are charts to aid in changing log sizes and quilt sizes. there is a section on using log cabin blocks as borders. she includes symbols to indicate the difficulty of cutting, sewing and organinzing the patches for each quilt. each quilt also has two diagrams for color and piecing order. there are many wonderful diagrams showing different settings for the traditional block and for some of her original blocks. all the quilts are based on equal-sized logs--there are no off center blocks. with this traditional approach and her color sense the results are beautiful and inspiring.

martin's suggestions and advice come from long experience in quilting and are always interesting and helpful. in the section, 'a piece of my mind,' she addresses many current ideas about quilting that i think need to be discussed--such as the shortcuts that actually take more time than the traditional techniques. the points she raises are helpful for any piecing situation. along with the excellent advice and instructions are photos that are actually helpful.

an added feature is the beautiful quilting, which shows up very well in the photos. there are, unfortunately, no patterns for the quilting.

this is a book that should be in any quilter's library--a beginning quilter can achieve a first-rate quilt following the instructions, an experienced quilter will learn new ways to approach her work.

I didn't think she could top "Scraps," which is a great book, but Judy's new book is perhaps the best yet. Judy invites you to learn her techniques, then make the patterns your own, rather than being limited by the patterns. This book is the best example yet, where she revisits the simple and elegant log cabin, then gives even the most experienced quilter option after option to create a completely unique quilt. Woo-hoo, Judy!

I love the book. It was purchased because our guild was doing one of the patterns and I live a distance away and often need extra help. The book not only has explicit directions but presents many different log cabins and ways to put them together. It is easy enough for a beginner but has style. The "Stone Cottage" pattern could probably be taught to very young children for their first quilt. I highly recommend the book to anyone who is looking for a different way to make a log cabin.

I am new to quilting but an experienced sewer. I recently moved to a new house with a log cabin feel so that I would like to put wall quilts in every room. When I discovered so many variations on the theme that allow "log cabin" framing of other motifs, I was hooked...which isn't hard as when I'm hooked on something, I have to have every available item in that theme so I am not missing any of the "big picture". I have believed strongly that without the big picture, judgment is impaired. This book Judy Martin's Log Cabin Quilt Bookis most helpful to get me the variety I need for each room! Thanks so much for making this book available!

Log Cabin Quilts Unlimited: The Ultimate Creative Guide to the Most Popular and Versatile PatternThis book will help you do any other Log Cabin variation that you can dream up so the two in tandem will give you the "unlimited" guide that will fulfill your "big picture" of Log Cabin Quilts. I did purchase them together from Amazon and would do it again.
