Quarter Log Cabin Quilt

First, I'd like to thank you all for your comments on my post "how I'm reducing my fabric stash". I enjoyed getting your input and if you asked a question, I posted my reply in the post comments section.

As I mentioned, I made a Quarter Log Cabin quilt to use (and enjoy in a quilt) much of my Bonnie and Camille stash. This quilt is a quickie! And I couldn't be happier with it!

See below for the measurements of my block if you'd like them.



I love that I was able to incorporate a piece from every line from Ruby to Handmade...


I kept the quilting simple and did overall loops on the entire quilt...




 For a backing, I was able to piece some of the large-sized aqua fabrics from my stash and make an all-aqua back.


My blocks finished at 6" and I set them on point with 1" finished sashing. Here's a cutting diagram for the block - easy to pin or save. The block is constructed just like a normal Log Cabin except that you're adding strips to just 2 sides. You could easily make 12" blocks with borders around a center square, then cut it in quarters. I didn't do that because I had smaller scraps and didn't want any identical blocks.

  9. What a unique use of scraps -- Will definitely have to try it! What width did you use for your white sashing? It looks the same as your 1-1/2" on your quarter log cabin block.

  11. Cynthia, grateful thanks for the inspiration and sharing the measurements. I would like to try this. It looks like a good leader ender project..... as I try to finish up my zillion other projects. Your quilt turned out so beautiful. The aqua light blue, reds and green look so nice together. Really soothing.
