Quarter Log Cabin Scrap Quilt ~ Work in Progress

Quarter Log Cabin Scrap Quilt | Red Pepper Quilts 2015

For this week's project I once again turned to my fabric stash. Working from stash makes so very happy. I like to use my fabrics, even the rare and sought after ones that I know I won't be able to replace. I know, I have enough fabric to last this life time, and with new fabrics coming in all the time, it is definitely a use it, or lose it situation. It's a matter of keeping on going and making the quilts ...

Thankfully, it is a task I relish. And scrap quilts are at the top of my list; in this instance by scrap quilt I mean a quilt made from many different fabrics to create an all over "scrappy" look, rather than fabrics that have been rescued from the scrap bin. The fabrics used for this quilt are all from stash, and range from small scale 30's prints to modern large scale designs, Japanese imports, designer quilting cottons and stash basics (dots, checks, stripes etc), in all the colors of the rainbow and more.

The quilt design is simple, alternating a patchwork square with a small quarter log cabin block. Lots of repetitive sewing. Cut, sew, press and repeat. This quilt is more about the fabrics than the design, although I do think that the little log cabins and the white "center" squares give the quilt a fresh, and modern look, as well as a sense of calm.

  6. Absolutely my kind of quilt. I discovered a long time ago that if there is significant amount of white in a quilt, then I am happy with it.

  11. Very inspiring advice.
    Stop hoarding, just use it. Make stuff with the fabric.
    I am trying very hard to cut into my stash, and use up as much as I can.
    have a fun day, and a superb week-end

  12. Your quilts are simple yet always look so complicated. I don't have scraps but lots of precuts and FQ bundles. I have thought about how I can make a quilt in similar style but have no idea how. I guess just buying low volume quilt bundles would be a start. I think you are so lucky on how fast your quilts sell too. You are an amazing person!
