Its maker is Kim Brandt from Poughkeepsie, New York. Kim has a quilting blog you might enjoy. Just recently she blogged in photos about a trip to Chile, so if you’re in the market for some inspiration, it abounds in those posts.

Kim shared with me about her Linkin’ Logs process:

How about using this Jelly Roll for the new assignment? No, not enough contrast.

The pattern goes together quickly and easily. Look how cute it is! All pieced and ready for quilting. Debby Brown will quilt it for me.

Fast forward! The quilt comes back from the quilter.
