Brown Log Cabin Quilt

So I needed to decide the layout for the brown log cabin blocks.  These are made with thrifted shirt fabrics. 

Brown LogCabin BlocksI’ve made a barn raising layout before:

I thought about a fields and furrows layout but the chevron layout won the day.

What if I made it asymmetrical?

Oh, I like that.  So here is the brown log cabin asymmetrical quilt top with the vertical rows webbed together.  All that’s needed is to sew the rows to each other and I’ll have a flimsy 🙂  I’m piecing the backing from the leftover shirt pieces so it will take a bit more sewing time before I’m ready to quilt this.

Happy Quilting, Cherie

  1. Cheri, That is an awesome quilt top!! Love it. Makes me want to go thrifting right now and start one, but I vowed not to start any more new projects this year. Lucky the person that gets to snuggle in this cozy quilt.

  2. I am stuck in log cabin phase. It is the most delightful pattern for oodles of scraps. I have 3 in process, and I just started cutting a 4th one out last night. I love how they all look so different and there are so many design options. Lovely use of up-cycled shirts.
