This quilt began as a study of sewing small, in a mind-stretching class taken with Chawne Kimber at a retreat. The teeny improvisational log cabins are dense, and they are surrounded by a rough-hewn fabric with minimal color. As the quilt came together, it began to feel like a contrast between a dense built-up area and the beginnings of a suburb outside of the city.
