Scrap Quilting - Red Scraps Log Cabin

Just look at this gorgeous mountainous picture from Amy of “Diary of a Quilter”! It’s rare to see such a beautiful quilt matched by such a beautiful background. But you’ll also love what an easy tutorial she’s put together for you. Each step that she has written was clearly thought out and easy to follow as well as her way of teaching and explaining in detail of what she is doing. Even for beginners, we think that you could easily follow along and create something similar to her project.

Key Takeaways:

  • Make a monochromatic (meaning one color) scrappy log cabin block measuring 12 1/2″ x 12 1/2″.
  • Step one is to DUMP the bin on the floor! The dump method makes it easier to see what you have while sewing and sorting.
  • The goal is to mix up the placement of lights and darks in your block to create more depth and dimension in the quilt.

“I’ve been thinking it would be great to put out a Quilt Block challenge to be made into quilts for a good cause, because many hands make light work (or in other words – many blocks make fast quilts!)”
