The Scrappy Log Cabin Quilt is completely finished! This was such a fun project. The entire quilt top was made from scraps and the backing came out of my stash. The blocks are 12 inches, so the finished quilt is 72 x 72.
The long arm quilter gave each center a little flower and added vines over all the rows, matching the thread color for each element. The quilting was done by Pat Boeck.
Here's a peek at the backing fabric. Much easier to see the quilting on the back.
I did something with this quilt that I rarely do, the binding was stitched down by machine. I do prefer the look of hand stitching binding, but doing it on the machine is a skill I needed to improve. This quilt isn't a 'precious' quilt. I intend to toss it in the back of the car for picnics and such things, so I felt it was a good opportunity to practice.
Now that my second log cabin quilt is finished I'm already considering the next one. I can't believe I waited so long to make a log cabin quilt! It is such a fun pattern to play with, so many color and design possibilities. I'm quite smitten with them
Hope you are having a happy scrappy day!
