Mini Log Cabin

by Thelma Robbins of Attawa, Ontario, Canada

Artist Statement:

For my first Log Cabin, I decided to make a miniature. I reduced the size of the traditional block to 1.25″. The subtle color gradation in the fabric gives a glowing effect. Once the binding was finished, I counted the number of pieces – over 1,600!”

Winner: Third Prize in Miniature

Award sponsored by Pellon
