There were 122 entries in the Traditional Quilt group category at the 2016 Festival of Quilts. Joy Salvage, who last year won the Quilters Guild award, had another success at this year's show. Blue Cabin was awarded a Highly Commended.
Joy adores the versatility of the old fashioned log cabin block. This quilt used up her collection of indgio inspired fabrics that she had collected. The hint of orange breaks up the mass of dark fabrics and gives the eye a focal point to the quilt. Each block is 6" square and the width of the strips is 1/2". So accurate piecing is essential.
