A modern cabin.

This was my first finish of 2016, and it’s all for me.


Carolyn Friedlander is probably my favorite fabric designer and when I made Emily’s Geese quilt a couple years ago, I didn’t want any beloved fabric to go to waste.  Using those scraps and various solids from my stash (including some thrifted sheets, my new favorite white fabric) I made large (24″ and up), improvised log cabin blocks.


It’s backed in a super soft dark gray cotton sheet I thrifted (don’t mind the wrinkles!) and the only Botanics yardage I had in my stash, Foliage in Curry.


I longarm quilted it in a figure 8 pattern of varying heights, with white thread.


It’s bound in a black crosshatch very similar to one from her Architectextures collection, and other scraps.


It made it onto my bed as soon as it could and quickly became covered in cat hair :)
