Liberated log cabins

I finished this liberated Amish meets Gee's Bend table runner this week. It has grey-scale blocks surrounded by solid strips and strings.

Here's a close up of the quilting, which I think might be more GB than Amish. I used a friend's Pfaff with an integrated walking foot and stitched in the ditch and put freehand vines and leaves in the geometric blocks and geometric designs in the leafy blocks. No yardage was used for the front of the quilt and the back was purchased at a yard sale, so I say I've met the GB part of the challenge. I did use my rotary cutter for squaring up the blocks, but in my defence, I made this before Tonya posted her new challenge.

Really lovely, and a table runner is such a good idea!

lovely - those centers just glow. and you were allowed to use the rotary cutter - that was optional. so yes, you met the challenge!
