I wanted to make a sofa topper and footstool cover using Christmas colors, but not Christmas fabrics.  I decided to make log cabin blocks to use up scraps and got out my jars of 1-1/4-inch-wide scraps – shades of red, green and off-white plus some yellow scraps in 2 inch blocks to represent the candle light in the log cabins.

I made 6-inch finished blocks – 32 for the topper (finished size – 49 inches long x 28 inches wide) and 4 blocks for the footstool cover.

I scanned and printed a recent picture of myself for the label because I think it’s nice to have an idea of what the quiltmaker looked like when the piece was made.

And my oldest daughter made a cute Christmas pillow to complete the project.
