Statement: Several times I had looked at a book which showed a reversible Log Cabin quilt with the same design (except for color choices) on both sides. I began to wonder whether one could make a reversible quilt with genuinely different designs on the two sides, and after three years of thought and trial and error, I finished my first reversible quilt. At that time it seemed that nothing could be more difficult, but in retrospect it seems quite simple, even though the designs on the two sides are different.
