Behind the studio door

This is the third quilt that I have made using the American Made Brand solids. I have to say that they are now my favorite solids to work with. They sew up nicely. They wash up nicely. The colors are vibrant and they don’t bleed when washed.
Summer Cabin is currently featured in Fons & Porter’s Easy Quilts Summer 2015 issue. It is made of giant log cabin blocks that go together quickly. It would really be great made with all your leftover scraps! I have been cutting 2 1/2″ strips from any leftover fabrics from previous projects. Maybe one day I will make another quilt like this with all those leftover strips.
There really isn’t much to say about the inspiration behind this. I just love the traditional log cabin block. And there are so many possibilities with different sizes and arranged layouts. You’re sure to find a combination that fits your taste. This is a zig zag type of layout.
You just might find me napping in our hammock this summer with this quilt wrapped around me. Life just doesn’t get much better than that!
