Cozy Cabins Quilt

I received my January, 2009 issue of Quick Quilts yesterday and immediately fell in love with this quilt:

I love scrap quilts and this one uses 1 1/2 inch strips of all colors and
2 1/4 inch black squares. I think what makes the quilt in the magazine so pretty is that is has a common color running throughout. The color is kind of a "tangerine" color. Each block has a little tangerine in it. I need to choose the color I want to accentuate and then start collecting 1 1/2 inch strips.

The name of the quilt block is White House Steps, a variation of the log cabin design. It looks very easy.

I have so many scraps that I'm sure I'll have no trouble coming up with plenty of fabric. I love those little scraps and can't bring myself to throw away even the tiniest one! BUT they are not very organized. I've got them in ziplock bags, here, there and everwhere.

I also already have quilt batting, but will probably need to purchase the backing fabric. Unless I decide to piece the backing fabric too!

I don't know when I'll make this quilt, but its the next quilt I'm going to make. Maybe in January, 2009!!!

I love Log Cabin quilts! I bet yours will be beautiful. I think the black center squares make it unique, too, so I hope you stick with that.
Hey, regarding our pantry inventories...did you ever see a site called You plug in what you have on hand and it gives you lots of recipes you can make right away.

Debbie, that would be a beautiful quilt to make. I'm sure you'll do a beautiful job too.

Debbie, Those colors(updated 70's) are very "in" now, but I have always loved them. You could probably do really well on resale if you make it for that. That and pink shabby roses do so well now.

BTW, I forgot to mention this in my post and wanted to let you know, Family Christian Book Store has a 33% off coupon for Veteran's Day.

A neat quilt. I have lots of fabric scraps. We will look at them when you stop by on your 'Anniversary Trip.' You might see some that you would like to use.

See you then. Marjorie

That is a very cool looking quilt. It almost has a primitive look to it. Can't wait to see yours when you get it made!
