Scrappy Log Cabin Project

While hand quilting my Liberty Four Patch quilt I started a new project with the same fabrics plus some other scraps : a baby crib quilt with Log Cabin blocks separated by strips.

For the central squares I cut 3"x 3".
For the strips I cut 1.75" width.

The finished block measures 8"x 8".

The finished top will measure 24"x 37".

In my circle there are three babies to be born soon : one next July and two next autumn! This means another three baby quilts to offer... how great, I love sewing baby quilts!

  3. Love your blocks! I have always heard yellow and red are often used in the center of log cabin blocks. I think both work great!

  17. Love the scrappiness of your Log Cabin. I've only ever done "controlled" logs, and I would never have thought to do them scrappy.

  20. Hi, I just joined a Liberty Fabric club and will be getting new fabrics every month. I am trying to figure out what to do and I thought of a log cabin quilt. How did you know what was darks and lights? I am finding that a little bit of a challenge.
