Yes, I have made this quilt before. But I think it was worth it, as they are very fun to make. I sold the first one *twice* over the Christmas holidays (yes, I really did) and needed to make another one for a customer.
The 1.5" strips, as you can see, are half "low volume" from my stash, and half bright rainbow colours from my scrap collection. I sewed them together in a log cabin fashion and ended up with blocks 5.5 inches. I do love log cabin quilts.
But, does anyone else get confused when sewing log cabin blocks? I seem to need to do them all in a short span of time, or I forget. I like the nice staggered blocks of colour, but I often end up starting to sew them incorrectly so that there is more like a square of colour with wings. (See my previous post on the subject.)
I bound this one in a Kona Purple (that is precisely the colour) again as requested by the customer. It is backed in a soft grey polka dotted Riley Blake flannel.
I've pieced it and quilted it all with Aurifil 50 wt. The piecing was all done in white (2024) and the stippling stitches in the quilting are white in the top thread and light grey (2600) in the bobbin.
Oh, it is so squishy and soft. So bright and happy. I might have to make one for myself one day! Incidentally, as soon as I began this quilt I was invited to join posting pictures of it with folks also making scrappy log cabin quilts on Instagram using the hashtag #scrappylogcabinqal, which you should definitely check out. And thanks for visiting me!
