Quarter Cabin Pavers

I like log cabin quilts. This modern scrappy version is one large quarter cabin block, made up of colorful 4” x 7” rectangles. 

A neutral creamy print on alternate rows gives just the right contrast. Finished size is 37” x 40” which works for a throw, wall hanging, or child's quilt.

This was one of seven projects I finished last month. July was hot and muggy, so I took refuge in my cool, quiet sewing room. I designed several more and managed to keep my workspace reasonably neat.

Now that I have been steadily sewing throughout August, a few horizontal spaces need freshening up. It's funny how scraps and leftover pieces of fabric begin to pile up together with rulers and tools. Sounds like this rainy day is the day to deal with that.
