I limited the fabric choices to what was in my batik stash, luckily for a miniature quilt you don't need too much fabric :) The blocks were made using the foundation method, I usually print my block patterns onto paper and then tear it away after I've stitched the block, this time I used lightweight fabric to print the block pattern on, as I didn't want to take the chance of the blocks distorting when the paper was torn away.
Each log cabin is a 1 and a 1/2" finished square, I then added borders and used the leftover blocks for each corner, the narrow aqua border is 1/8" wide. The quilting is quite minimal although I did do a fair amount of ditch stitching to stabilise the quilt before I did the decorative quilting, I used metallic threads for the decorative quilting. The quilt was bound with a single fold binding and finished at 10 1/2" square.
I wrote a poem for the quilter's statement:
Illusions hath gems
an incandescent star glows
on a chartreuse field
the first three words of the poem are also an anagram (4 words - 2, 4, 5, 6)
