Change its Personality with Fabric Choices!
A modernized version of a Log Cabin block makes a stunning quilt. Depending on the colors and fabrics you choose, it can be modern, vintage or anything in between. This is an extremely versatile pattern that can take on any personality you want to give it.
Play with color and its placement to create your own special version. Notice in the photos how the quilt changes depending on the background color. Color and value placement plays a big part too. Look carefully at the photos to see variations and how they change the quilt.
While this is a simple quilt to sew together, the designer, Suzy Williams, has tips to help it go smoothly. Click here for Suzy’s article (and to see more examples!).
“Art Deco Pastels” by Evie Jespersen.
“Pink Punch” by Leah Weskamp.
“Gradient Rainbow” by Saija Elina.
Big stitch hand quilt is a lovely finishing touch. Or, quilt with your walking foot for a quicker finish.
The completed quilt is 66 ½” x 66 ½”, although it can be easily adapted to other sizes.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
