I am finishing all my WIPs before the year end so I can start 2017afresh.
Here is a scrappy log cabin pillow I started already in May, hence the happy colours.
I met with a friend back then who wanted to learn how to quilt. So we each sewed a log cabin pillow. Mine just took a lot longer to finish. But here it is:
The overall size is 23 x 23'' (65 x 65cm). The blocks are randomly pieced and I intentionally made them in different sizes.
I used red cross hatch fabric for the back, this is a great contrast to the white sashing and let the blocks really pop.
I quilted the individual blocks in straight spirals. I did this method before and had quite a lot puckering. I think this worked a lot better now.
I used Aurifil variegated thread for all the blocks which coordinated very nicely with the scrappy fabrics of each block.
I'm very happy this pillow is finally finished!
