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?


  1. outstanding! I always have been drawn to scrappy, but I have found that the books and magazines and blogs that draw me is not reflected in my stash...frustrating! My plan is to make super scrappy quilts and work through all this fabric, so i can replace it with light, bright, and happy.

  2. love it - love the big blocks too.

  3. Audrey you are so right, I had to stop and smell the roses due to trying to keep up with the latest, now it is just what fancies me. I love this quilt you posted lots of work went into the sasing and boarders a great idea for a future scrappy quilt, or a setting for the many block swaps I have accumulated.

  4. A beautiful quilt. Lots of inspiration.
