modern log cabin quilt

I've been staring at my fat quarter bundle of Anna Maria Horner's Garden Party for ages. I do have a large project in mind for it. However, the print with the concentric squares in it just begged to be "fussy cut" and used on it's own. This is what I came up with... I used it as the center for my log cabins and drew my color palette from the print. I quilted it in free form, vertical waves...

I used a solid BRIGHT orange kona for the back and bound it in the olive (go figure) and added a little patch of brown for fun!


It is a fun quilt, wouldn't you say?

LOVE.IT! What a great way to use that center fabric. I love the colors you pieced around the center square. I love the off-kilter with white. And I love the combo of green binding with the orange backing.

Look at that design of the curvy stitches on the back. I love the whole thing especially the log cabin blocks. Anything patchwork related is my favorite! And the orange is a surprise for sure. Soooo when are YOU going to teach a quilting class there? Or put tutorials here on the blog? You could you know:)
