soft & scrappy log cabin

I'm on a "finish what you start" roll at present and am super happy to be finishing up my soft & scrappy log cabin today. This was a small in-between project that I started back in October 2019. Lots of log cabin 12" blocks, a simple design but always a favourite. It's a real mix of old & new fabrics, all in whispery light low volumes and pastels, all from the scrap basket.

I had it machine quilted in the 'bapist fan' edge to edge pattern by Leeanne from 'quilt me kiwi'. I chose 'apron Berta' Sunday in the Country by Nathalie Lete for Anna Maria's Conservatory collection for my binding, it seems to draw out the warm toasty colours really nicely as well as highlight those little "pops" of blue. 
The finished quilt measures 43" x 53", another small throw size. Linking up with Kelly for 'needle and thread Thursday' here and with Wendy over here for this weekends 'peacock party'. 
 






















Until next time, Linda

  1. This is such a charming quilt. And inspiring, I might have to dig into my scraps for a similar one since I've just learned of a new little one on the way.

  3. It looks so invitingly snuggly (if that's even a thing). Perfect for these cooler days which we have on the way.

  5. You must be tickled with this one - it's just beautiful, soft and inviting. Can't go wrong with scrappy in my book!

  6. The soft coloring of your quilt is just lovely. Invitingly snuggly as another commenter said.

  7. I think this quilt might be my most favourite... the lightness of it, the way the binding adds its own flavour and that Baptist fan quilting is superb.

  8. What a sweet looking quilt. Love the darker pops of intensity too. The stitching finishes it off wonderfully and that binding! What a bold, happy touch.:)

  9. Such a sweet quilt. Baptist fan is a great quilt design. I am hand quilting it atm.

  10. What a beauty! Would you believe, I've never made a log cabin block? It's not a favorite block for me, though I have made quarter and half cabins. Anyway, I love the colors you used - also which could not be found in my stash or scraps - because they're soft-looking. You've shared such a nice opposite to the bold and brazen colors I gravitate towards. Once again, I'm admiring our differences, and how fun yours are to see. Good work!

  13. This is very soft and pretty. I especially like that you went bold and bright with your binding; it gives the finished quilt a lovely contemporary edge (literally and metaphorically).

    I looked at your previous posts and love your projects, great progress.

  15. It's so soft and the curves of Baptist fans make a lovely change. I thought you'd done it yourself at first. Congratulations on a beautiful finish.
