Quilt designs look great on log beds! Any kind of bed linens will look lovely and eye-catching on rustic log furniture. Nothing looks quite as "right" for a log bed though, as a fine home-made quilt.
There are, of course, many places to find excellent quilt patterns, but if you are new to this, I'd like to offer a FREE quilt pattern piece that has been in my family for at last three generations.
You only need this one design piece. The quilt takes on a personality of its own from the colours of fabric and the arrangements of them. To finish off the edges, cut your last few pieces in half and use those to fill in the gaps and make a straight edge for the border of your choice.
