Louisiana Log Cabin
Walking through the furniture shop, I kept thinking about the kind of quilt that would be a fitting representation of the artist's work. When we returned home, I set to work with some browns and greens. I wanted to used the colors that are easily found in the bayous of our great state. The center, or hearth, of the block is a red fabric that has a strange weed motif. Certainly, there are some odd weeds growing along the bayou banks in our area, so it seem fitting for this quilt.
Eventually Rory finished school and married. I wanted to give them a quilt for their wedding and asked Meggan, his fiance, to choose from those that were already finished. She was immediately drawn to this one. How fitting, I thought, that she would appreciate the quilt that was a result of his work. Not long after they were married, Rory made a bed for their new home and Meggan gladly put the quilt on display on their bed. She decorated using the red from the quilt. The result is a warm, beautiful master bedroom that is a perfect combination of his work, her tastes, and their new life.
