This Stunning Quilt is an Easy One to Make!

Typically, the light and dark areas of Log Cabin quilts are comprised of logs of similar values. In this stunning quilt, medium value fabrics are mixed into the lights and darks, adding interest and punch to the finished quilt.

Blacks, browns, and grays contrast with the lighter red, cream, tan and muted turquoise for a sensational color combination. The wide value range, from black to cream, makes the overall design pop.

Contrasting Cabins Quilt Pattern

Dig into your stash and pull out a nice assortment for the light and dark areas of your quilt. Decide on a focus color or two to build your quilt around, in this case red and black/brown.

The finished quilt, from designer Lissa Alexander, is 72 1⁄2  × 96 1⁄2″ .

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.
