Notice the subtle background blocks behind the trees and the flower - they provide depth and light, drawing you into the design. The third detail from the bottom is from a large "Storm At Sea" quilt which has almost completely disguised the actual pattern in a totally new and very atmospheric design. The last photo shows the BACK of a traditional Log Cabin quilt. The front is not nearly as interesting as the back (IMHO). The strips in the blocks are very narrow and the inserted squares are tiny - about 1/2" each.
It never ceases to amaze me what creative minds can come up with!
