Rebekah's Scrappy Log Cabin Quilt

fabric for January


Thank you all so much for contributing to this quilt!

bee beautiful blocks so far


It was so much fun to see how my pile of scraps from old projects were turned into these beautiful blocks.

The colors and patterns are wild and crazy, and while I could have added sashing between to tone things down, I decided to sew each block directly together for a true patchwork look. This quilt is a birthday present for a hippie and color loving person and I know that she'll love the craziness of it.

I started with the 20 blocks that you all sent me and then I added five blocks of my own to make it a square quilt. The final size is about 55" x 55."

Thank you all so much for contributing to this quilt! I know that my cousin will have lots of fun examining each of the fabrics in this (she's going to school for fashion design). Now I'm just catching a few more peeks at this before I have to wrap it up and give it away.
