The summer months conspired against my sewing ambitions. Hot weather, travel, too much going on at work … you know the drill.
This quilt gets a lot of requests for a pattern. It’s really straightforward – it’s a Log Cabin variation made in the Courthouse Steps method. The attached tutorial provides 18 different blocks (a couple are very similar to each other) and the dimensions you need to make version shown. The blocks are a finished size of 14″ x 14″ each.
For this quilt, I used a lovely green (my favorite solids are Art Gallery Pure Elements because they do not ravel. On this one, I used a combination of Art Gallery and Kona solids by Robert Kaufman. The Art Gallery green is Dark Citron and the white is Snow. Binding is a Tula Pink fabric from Free Spirit.) I’m a huge fan of Art Gallery’s Pure Elements line – i hate raveling. These are the best solids for both combination of color richness and minimal ravel. They are more expensive than Kona; however, the time I spend trimming ravel on Kona solids is unreal – I’d rather pay more.
I’m going to start a version of this quilt using different colored squares and perhaps a gray background.
Enjoy the tutorial – hopefully I didn’t mess anything up!
