Scrappy Log Cabin Quilt

The scrappy log cabin quilt's done!

Like the hubs says, "it's so crazy it works". Thanks... I think?

I can't tell you how fun this quilt was to make! I was inspired by Rebekah's block for Bee Beautiful. I made two blocks for her, and realised two wasn't enough, so I started this. I went to my stash, cut one or two strips from a bunch of them, and hoped like hell it all made sense.

I used a Kona cotton for the binding in blue... then added a scrap of black and white dot fabric. Just because.

And since the front's so busy, I thought that two shades of grey on the back would be best. I used Kona Ash and Coal.

It ended up measuring approx 40" by 51" and is now available in the shop SOLD! :)

Charming. So nice to see you just let loss. Who has heard of a cabin where all the beams are straight anyways. You are just amazing me at how quick you get all these done.

Vicki said...

You did this in just the last couple of weeks?! Awesome. I think crazy blocks are harder and take longer - I think about them too much.

Looks awesome and what a great way to use up your scraps! I love those gray kona cottons, I'm waiting for my delivery of coal, but now I'm wishing I would've added on some ash too! Looks like it's back to online shopping. :)
