This unusual Log Cabin variation has a dynamic pattern. The lights and darks were rotated and juxtaposed to create a bold X-like motif as the quilt's central focus. Strips of black and other dark tones are contrasted with light camel and beige tones with red accents. Just when you thought you had seen every type of log cabin along comes this dazzling concept to expand your collection or to be the one quilt to serve as the dramatic graphic focal point of your design plan. There is a little bit of red bleed in two blocks of the overall design, apparent only on close examination, which is why we are discounting it. I think it might be possible to have the neighboring strips cleaned or replaced, which would be at the buyer's expense.
