I recently finished this quarter log cabin quilt with some scraps I've been trying to use up for some time. I still have enough scraps to make another baby quilt, but I'm very happy with this finish. I bought this fabric to make my nephew a baby quilt almost two years ago now. My first go at the scraps ended in these three bags, but I had intended to make a full size quilt. The blocks just didn't come together quite like I had envisioned. It's funny, because the same thing happened with this quilt.
I began working with a limited color palette, but then changed my mind and started putting together whatever I had in combinations that appealed to me.
When I finished, I tried two different layouts.
I liked them both, but settled on the second. I picked a simple, Japanese inspired design for the quilting. It is hand quilted with a variegated purple pearl cotton, number 12, I think.
It's bound and backed with more shots and stripes scraps.
