Scrappy Log Cabin

I love this quilt and was hanging out for Karen to finish the quilting.  With the exception of the red spot on white fabric, it's made completely from my scrap boxes.  I had no idea what size it would end up:  93-1/2" square is pretty big.  Really happy with the scrappy binding too.




I love clamshell quilting and think it looks great on the log cabin blocks


I've been saving this Moda 40th Anniversary fabric for a large scrappy quilt and it works so well for this one.


Funny thing happened - I had 18 blocks left after putting the quilt top together.  When I was tidying up the sewing room, I found a string of 17 more half-finished blocks.  Those blocks are now finished along with another 6 and I have enough for a lap quilt.  I'm currently sewing these blocks together - no sashing and posts this time, except on the outer border.

More binding to be made over the weekend for Snippets.
