Log Cabin Lunacy under the Full Buck Moon

Wonky Log Cabin
40 x 58


It will be a donation quilt for either Wrap-A-Smile or Quilts Beyond Borders


I started this in February when the Rainbow Scrap Challenge color of the month was brown.  I noticed I had a lot of short brown strings and a quilt was born.  Surprise, surprise...I started and finished something all in the same year!!!!! 


In the summer I like to piece together my leftover batting for smaller donation quilts and then get them quilted on my DSM.   I send the quilts off to their destinations at the end of the year and then the cycle starts all over again.   



For the backing I used a nice soft 100% cotton sheet. 
I quilted it with some wobbly and wonky spirals on my DSM.



I even had enough leftover binding pieces in brown to finish it up. 

This was goal #5    on my      Q3 Finish-A-Long list. 

I'm also linking up to:

A good scrappy log cabin quilt. The log cabin block is so versatile. Both in ways to make them and the variety of settings.

That is so impressive! I look forward to next year when each month you present a quilt in the color of the month.

I have a serious weakness for log cabin blocks, a whole scrappy log cabin quilt is super! Nice quilting too.

Your wonky log cabin blocks created a delightful quilt. Along with the free motion quilting it makes an exciting finish
