Building a Log Cabin- String by String, Scrap by Scrap


Wonky Logs
It's just a top now.  Quilting to follow soon (I hope). 
40 x 60



I like to make Wonky Logs when I get enough short string scraps.  And I usually use red scraps for the centers. 


After I piece together some scrap batting and figure out what to use for a back it will get quilted by me on my DSM.   And then I will donate it to either 

When the time comes I will link up to:

So much eye movement in these whimsical wonky logs! They look very playful and it is a very happy effect.

Can't beat a log cabin. These are great photos - I love the way the shadows play with the light and dark areas of the quilt.

So enjoy seeing quilt tops with the light filtering through -- your scrappy log cabin is a beauty!

Log cabins are such a great way to use up all the strings that seem to be created! I love how your log cabin top turned out!
