Scrappy Log Cabin #3

1 Oct

So I wasn’t really expecting to finish 2 scrappy log cabin quilts in one week (and get photo’s taken and a blog post written!).   You can read about the one I finished last week here.  This one is not massively different in that the blocks are the same sizes, the quilting  pattern, threads used and the binding are all the same!

So this will be a photo heavy post rather than repeat myself!

If I’ve swapped scraps with you, or you sent me scraps or fabric donations for Siblings Together I can almost guarantee that there is some of that fabric in this quilt (or the one I finished last week)!

I’m quite gutted that I’ve come to the end of the Alison Glass Bike Path prints, I love how they look as binding; I’ll be keeping an eye out for more at a bargain price.

I really thought about keeping one of these quilts because so many pieces of fabric have memories tied up in them but I looked in a cupboard upstairs and there are plenty of quilts in there!  The quilt even has some fabric from one of the first quilts I made for Siblings Together:7303391506_c9a7bc89cd_z

You can see some of the bunk bed monkey print in the block in the top middle of this photo:

I’ve tried to be efficient and remember to add labels as I go rather than having to do a pile all at once so now both the scrappy log cabin quilts have labels on (generously supplied by Spoonflower).

  1. Well done for getting so much finished! Amazing to think that was a few years ago now that you made the monkey quilt (amongst others) for ST. This quilting lark is quite addictive :)

  2. Scrappy quilts are the best because they allow you to remember all the other quilts you have made. Thanks for joining the #siblingstogether link up!
