Don’t worry everyone, I’ll be mixing up my quilt style soon enough! But for today it’s another log cabin. I know I’m obsessed with it – these blocks come together so fast, it’s almost instant-gratification.
If you’re not piecing Log Cabin with this method, you should check it out. It totally lives up to the “quilt in a day” name. Moving on…
Tie Dye Log Cabin Quilt Piecing
Back in this post, I showed my tie dye process for a white sheet I found at Good Will. I always look for white sheet to dye, or fun sheets to use as a backing/ cut up for squares. This was a king-size sheet, so I had a lot to work with. I might need to start looking for a better thrift store, though. This Good Will isn’t that great.
For the last version of this, I used a green for the “light” section and quilted diagonally through that section. You can see that post here… But I gifted that quilt away. I was torn between making the striped version again, or trying a traditional barn-raising style.
I even tried asking one of the quilting facebook groups I joined… and almost everyone said barn-raising. But I’m going with the stripe. The barn-raising/diamond style is too traditional, and I’m definitely closer to being a modern quilter.
I was hoping to have the quilt top finished for this post, but it’s not *laughing crying emoji… oh well, You’ll see it on the blog or on instagram sometime soon.
Like doing 3 part series for larger quilts:
- Part 1: materials & cutting
- Part 2: Piecing & Quilt Top Assembly (if possible)
- Part 3: Quilting & Binding
I’ll be posting Part 3 of this quilt as soon as I buy a backing fabric and have time to quilt this thing!!
Have you used your own hand-died fabrics in a quilt before? I would love to see your results!
