Last week's Quarter Log Cabin blocks have been sewn into a quilt top. With sashing. I don't usually make quilts with sashing so this did feel like a small step outside of my comfort zone, especially with such a bold choice for sashing fabric.
The red and white stripe sashing fabric is a basic by Riley Blake Designs. It is a 1/2" wide stripe. I did have two narrower red/white stripe fabrics on hand but decided that this wider stripe fabric was more "restful" to the eye.
64 Scrappy Quarter Log Cabin Blocks
Each quarter log cabin block measures 6.25" x 6.25"
100+ different printed fabrics from stash and rescued from the scrap bin.
The gingham fabric I have used is Medium Gingham in Black by Riley Blake.
Blocks made as per Scrappy Quarter Log Cabin Block Tutorial
(but only with the first 8 logs and then trimmed back to measure 6.25" x 6.25")
Sashing fabric strips cut 2" wide.
Quilt top measures 52 inches x 52 inches.
I am really happy with how it has turned out and I have loved working on it. The gingham and stripe fabric are a timeless combination. The fabrics used for the Quarter Log Cabin blocks have either been rescued from my scrap bin or taken from my stash. The result is a busy but scrappy and cheerful quilt (it is certainly quite restful to look at in it's actual size).
