Hand Dyed and Subtle Batik Fabrics Will Shine in This Quilt!

The Log Cabin quilt gets an update in this lovely example. Hand dyed fabrics were used, giving that old favorite a contemporary look and feel. Whether you purchase hand dyed fabrics or dye them yourself, this pattern will show off their subtle patterning.

Updated Log Cabin Wall Quilt

Softly patterned batiks would also be lovely in this quilt. It’s a great vehicle for any subtly patterned fabrics you want to showcase.

We love the colors selected by the designer, Joyce Mori. It would be equally lovely and unique in whatever fabrics you choose. For best results on this small scale, be sure to keep the values about the same within the dark and light areas.

The finished quilt is 28″ x 28″. Display it on your wall or on a table.

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!
