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!!!
