Log Cabin Bouquet Quilt

Hi there!


How has your week been?  Isn't it crazy how fast the weeks are flying in!  But I'm glad we're almost out the other side of January, aren't you?


When I first started learning patchwork, one of the first blocks I tried was the humble log cabin! And it was love at first ...... stitch!


My first Log Cabin quilt made from recycled textiles!


Over the years I've stitched many log cabin variations, and even have a dedicated Log Cabin Pinterest Board!


So when Popular Patchwork said they were going for a colourful and cheery February issue, I had an idea!

62" x 62"


This is Log Cabin Bouquet!


With a few adjustments, the log cabin block can be turned into a heart shape.  And when you put the hearts together, you get a flower shape!  Neat!

If, like me, you have a 'Fabric Bucket List' it's always a joy when you finally get the opportunity to work with some long desired collection or fabric line.

When Art Gallery launched their Denim Studio, I swooned!  Already a long time lover of all things denim, my heart skipped a beat when I saw how creative Art Gallery got with this unassuming textile.  Oh boy! The different weights, patterns and textures - so many to choose from.

Imagine my delight when the Editor of Popular Patchwork approved my design! I stuck to denims that were 4oz or 5oz and I thought I'd go braver with the background this time.

The background is Painterly Wash and the backing Ragged Daisies.  Wouldn't these make beautiful tunic dresses (that'll be another addition to the bucket list then!).

If you are considering Denim Studio, I recommend using the 4-5 oz ones for quilting and the 10 oz ones for bag making and soft furnishings.

So that's another fabric itch scratched!  I definitely see more Denim Studio in my future!


Happy sewing!
