Liberty Log Cabins

Thanks so much all for the comments you’ve left on my Black Sheep Wools Baby Quilt post – you have been so helpful, and it’s so great that you all have such strong views, I love it! I am working on revamped designs. I love this crowd-sourcing lark!

I was on my own when it came to working on my first commission for Today’s Quilter (so exciting to be working for another quilt magazine but still with the fabulous¬†Jenny F-P who used to be editor at Love Patchwork and Quilting). I could have done with some crowd-sourcing or hive-minding then, I was so nervous. Jenny could tell you about all the daft twitchy emails I sent when all my confidence went… something about working for a magazine and getting the style right, I think.

Anyhow, I was really pleased to get the magazine last week and see my makes looking pretty good.

I was super-keen to use lots of scraps (I have – no exaggeration – one of these IKEA units full of Liberty lawn scraps), so went with restrained colour schemes so that I wouldn’t have to think about anything other than pulling out the right coloured scraps. My favourite is the blue/grey one, I love the architectural quality that the tiny log-cabin pieces bring. It has definitely inspired me to add a log cabin project in neutral solids to my Wish List of Future Projects!

Are you buying Today’s Quilter? I am enjoying it so far – there’s a lovely mix of projects and a very pleasing focus on technique – I am learning a lot. I love Carolyn Forster’s blue triangle quilt on the front cover this month – gorgeous stuff.

  1. The blue/grey one is my preference, too. I do lots of projects using scraps – but I can’t figure out how I manage to amass so many scraps?!?
