Log Cabin Challenge 2

Here is my 3rd quilt for the annual BIMQG challenge. This year the challenge is a log cabin design. In my previous post I showed my Mod Minni quilts. Here I have done a more traditional but improv log cabin.

I started with a basket of scraps in a pleasing color pallet most of which were left over from previous quilt blocks or recent sewing projects.

I really enjoy the freedom of improv piecing. My rules include… No measuring. No ironing. Just grab fabric and sew it into 1\4 log cabin blocks.

Once the blocks were made I filled in with some Kona Cotton Ash. My go to gray fabric. Again the fill in pieces were kept wonky.

I kept the quilting simple by mirroring the log cabin blocks.  The free motion quilting was done on my 1978 Bernina 830 Record which I found at a garage sale for $10.

You’ll notice there isn’t a binding on the quilt.  I sewed it right sides together with the backing then turned it thru the opening I left. I like the finish but I’m sure there must be an easier way to accomplish this same look.
