Making: Blue and White Split Log Cabin (with a little persimmon thrown in!)

I created another version of my split log cabin quilt for a class I'll be teaching at New Pieces Quilt Shop in January.

Blue and White Split Log Cabin

For my first green and white version I used only upcycled and vintage fabrics, but for this one, I chose to use all new fabrics for the front.  I found this wonderful, textured cotton that is very reminiscent of vintage flour sacks as well as some beautiful Kaffe Fassett shot cottons and a cotton called "Quilter's Linen" by Robert Kaufman (it looks textured like linen, but it's not!).

If you're wondering what the back looks like, well...I was a bit of a procrastinator as this quilt was due to be on display at New Pieces by today, so I literally cut the last threads, took a couple of photos and drove it down there, forgetting to photograph the back!  I used the same ticking stripe for this one as for the green and white as well as some inset blue denim.  I love it!  I'm so excited about teaching the pattern, it's so much fun!

  6. I love how this turned out! But i would never attempt it! Bravo you - very successful effort!

    And it is blue and white - one of my favorite combination. I think the design calls out for a simple color choice.
