Scrap Happy

I made this quilt in December 2005 without buying anything for it. All the fabrics and batting were leftovers from previous projects. The backing is two large different pieces and the binding is made up of around 20 different fabrics. The batting was pieced from 3 leftovers (maybe even 4). Even the monofilament thread was leftover from previous quilts. This was one of the last quilts that I quilted on my regular sewing machine before I purchased my HQ16.

I am always intrigued by log cabin quilts. The layout possibilities are endless. I was quite pleased with the effect of this one.

This is such a beautiful quilt! I am impressed that everything is made from scraps from other projects. Fabulous!

I have made about 4 log cabins or so and have never made one of this design - I will have to remember your layout, I really like it. Don't you just love having enough of everything left over from other quilts to make a whole top without buying a thing! I do that every now and then too.

Awesome quilt Anya! Amazing colors just from stash (obviously much larger than mine)!

Very pretty, *log cabin* blocks are so good for *scrappy*...I am thinking I want to use up some of my scraps to make a couple of new throw pillows, and *log cabin* was the direction my mind was going! I also like that the variation is endless with the log cabin blocks! Have a wonderful week!
