The Scrappy Quarter Log Cabin Quilt is finished! I have loved every moment of working on this quilt, the cutting of the fabric strips, the repetitive piecing, and the lines and lines of straight line quilting. Perhaps not so much the basting, but that is unfortunately just part of the process, during which I remind myself that it is another step closer to finishing ... and starting something new.

Thank you for all of your kind comments here on my blog, on Instagram (@redpepperquilts) and on Facebook. I think there is something so delightful and heart warning about scrappy traditional patchwork. It appeals to so many quilters - and non-quilters - and makes for wonderful eye candy. Please bear with me today and scroll leisurely through the many photos ...

For the back of the quilt I have once again used my favorite backing fabric ~ Newsprint from the Paint Collection by Carrie Bloomston.  The quilt is quilted with straight vertical lines just 3/4" apart, ditch stitching all vertical seam lines, as well as most of the horizontal seam lines; adding subtle texture to this quilt which is layered with low loft cotton batting.

And I have used a classic black/white stripe fabric by Timeless Treasures for binding - a fabric I use often for binding for it is indeed timeless and provides just the right amount of contrast for this otherwise busy quilt top. These quilt edges ... make me deliriously happy!

  2. Great way to use those bits and pieces! Love the straight line quilting, can I ask what the spacing is? Have been putting off finishing a quilt as I am not confident I'll get the right look...

  4. Wow, that's a beautiful quilt and I have been waiting to see how you would quilt it too. Congratulations on selling it so quickly, it must have been hard to let it go! The new owner will feel happy whenever they use it I'm sure.

  7. What a lovely quilt. I'd like to start one of these. Maybe I should start cutting squares for the centers?

  8. Really like the offset squares; adds interest. And the fabrics are so sweet - they remind me of feed sack fabrics, for which I have a soft spot.

  11. Your fabric goes so well together. It looks like you purposely chose all the fabric specifically for this quilt. I really love the backing fabric. I've never used text fabric but I fixing to start. You're such an inspiration. Thanks

  13. I truly love everything you make. I was actually trying to pinpoint what it was about your quilts today (since I tend to use bolder, brighter fabrics in my own quilting) and I think it's your use of color and placement along with your love for patchwork. I just adore simple patchwork. Your work is always lovely and so inspiring.
