Scrappy Log Cabin Quilt
By Audrey Easter
I've always been very drawn to scrappy quilts, probably always will be. I love the old, new, bright, dark, intricately pieced and yes, even the most simply pieced ones. There is no limit to what makes a perfect scrap quilt in my eyes. In fact, I even have a stack of books to help me learn how to make beautiful scrap quilts! This particular quilt was made in response to a quilt show that my sister and I walked through and oohed and ahhed over the most traditional, old fashioned style of quilts ever and barely paused in front of the new, trendy styles of quilts. We kept asking ourselves, 'why haven't we been making more of these kinds of quilts ourselves if we love them so much?' Hmmm.... Sometimes it's a little too easy to get caught up in the latest craze isn't it?
