Lately, I've been making a lot of quilts that had HST's or corner to corner sewing, and I just wanted something easy. This quarter log cabin really fit the bill, and used up 20 fabrics from my stash- yay! I cut my fabric like this (using either fat quarters or quarter yards)-
*not to scale
These are the same measurements I used for my Stacked Squares modification, and it works great for this pattern too! I just sewed the strips around the center square, cut into quarters, and had fun with the layout, orienting all of the squares in one direction. Sewing strips to squares is about as easy as it gets!
I also finished up my Pop Star pattern, and it is listed in my Craftsy and Etsy shops! I just love the high drama of these stars. These are 18 inch blocks, so the quilt goes together in a flash, and it perfect for showing off bold prints. The quilt is written for lap, twin, and queen sizes, and I hope you'll check it out!
I have one last bit of business to share with you before we get to last week's party features. I owe you a winner from last week's giveaway! The winner of the gorgeous custom labels is Leanne Parsons, comment number 12. Congratulations, Leanne! This really is an awesome prize!
If you didn't win the spool of labels, I hope you'll still check out Finer Ribbon to design some for yourself. My labels are 2.25 inches wide, and I know that the $98 price tag for that width may seem steep for some (narrower labels are less expensive). I want to point out though, that this is for an entire spool of 1000 labels! That's less than 10 cents per label, which really is the cheapest I found anywhere for full color printing. With great quality and customer service to boot, that's unbeatable.
Okie dokie! Let's get to last week's party highlights. Sandy from Upstairs Hobby Room shared a tutorial for her amazing Summer Breeze block. Doesn't it make a spectacular quilt?
Heather at Modern Parti Quilts linked up this fun Sea Monsters penny patch quilt- perfect for a baby boy!
and even though I shared it in its unfinished state, I couldn't resist showing this Yuma quilt by Made by Chrissie D again now that it's finished. It's amazing how the colors and the white just pop right out against the gray...gorgeous!
