Scrappy Log Cabin Quilt

I started this scrappy log cabin quilt last year after I organized my scraps in buckets. When this does not really make a dent to my scrap baskets but I'm super thrilled to finished this one just before the trip to Japan last January. My friend and me, we decided to take at least one quilt this time too. Last year I took the small log cabin quilt :D 

Last January I only had 6 blocks completed. The block size is approx 12 x 12 inches and totally made from scraps. 

This was my "just having fun" kind of quilt. I cut the scraps into 1.5" strips and using sew and cut method. Almost like quilt as you go method without the quilting part. 

The fabrics were of all kind of weight, as long as the color match! I did not follow any rule and I kind of loving this process. 

I pieced and quilted using my Jack sewing machine. I decided to just do wonky lines quilting ehmm it's called organic lines, right? And I loved the result! and so are my family and friends :D 

And here's my quilt hanging on the tree trunk at Inokashira Park! It was a nice sunny day when we decided to take the quilts out and find a good place to take photos :D. Yeah, we're crazy like that! Many morning walkers were glancing/looking and smile at us :D . 

And another shot at Arashiyama Bamboo Forest
I still have a lot of scraps. I've cut a few in different sizes and have a couple of ideas. Let's see I hope I can create something bigger than this scrappy log cabin! 
Thank you for stopping by & spend time reading my blog!

have a nice day!

Oh Scraps!


  1. Thanks for stopping to read my blog post today. It's nice to meet you. :) I like your bright-and-black-and-white log cabins!

  2. Super cute finish! I'm always on the lookout for a project that will obliterate my scrap bin and always end up disappointed! It's currently overflowing. Something *must* be done about that ...

    1. Scraps can be overwhelming to tackle but once I separated them by colors, now it's easier for me. I am currently trying to cut them into pieces that I can readily use. Thank you for stopping by!

  3. Your quilt is beautiful, very unique version of a log cabin. Love your scraps. Your photos are all gorgeous, especially the last one!

  4. I love it, what an amazing colour combination.
