rainbow log cabin quilt


I'm completely in love with this quilt.

From deciding to do something different (for me), to having fun piecing it and seeing the end result be so cool! I loved each block but even when I laid them out I didn't know if it worked. The grey eyelets from 'Flea Market Fancy' by Denyse Schmidt was the perfect choice for the rainbow blocks and, for me, the final touch that made me fall in love.






There's so many fun little fabric pieces in each colour block and my kids loved pointing them out!

The back is a Jay McCarroll print that I've used before, it's a nice vibrant blue with pink squares.



It is quilted in diagonal straight lines using Aurifil 50wt.

Gotta love the quilty goodness draped on the chair my Nan gave me (which I've re-cushioned and thought about recovering but I've grown to love the vintage shininess of it!).



Sold!

  18. Beautiful. I really do love the colours and the fussy cuts. I agree with Leanne though - you charge far too little for your quilts!
