I just love this quilt

I know a scrappy quilt like this isn’t to everyone’s taste but I just love everything about this one. The log cabin blocks, the sashing, the quilting, and the pieced back – knowing that the blocks were all from leftover strips and strings just makes it even more fun for me.

You can see how I make my log cabin blocks on theStrips and Strings Log Cabin page of my website and the sashing and border for this one are cut 2.5 inches.

  • I love the blue, it makes the scraps pop. I have a tendency to do boring whites and creams when I do scraps. Will have to broaden my horizons. Selina

    What a happy quilt! One of the many reasons I love scrap quilts is that they truly represent what a quilt should be — something useful and beautiful made out of what would otherwise be discarded.

    I love scrappy quilts and have started one of my own with leftover scraps from welding hats that I make.

    I agree with the other comments that the blue is a great choice for the sashing. The squares and the “wonkiness” really stand out. The lucky new owner is going to love this quilt!
