Dappled- Cabin Fever: 20 Modern Log Cabin Quilts

Are you ready to be introduced to another yummy quilt from our new book, Cabin Fever: 20 Modern Log Cabin Quilts. 

If you know me very well you know that scraps just aren't my thing, not that I have anything against them, I just don't collect or stash fabrics, "gasp" I know the room just got really quiet. :) I've always been a simplistic person and scraps just seem to overwhelm me. 

When Kathleen and I came up with this design, we just knew it had to be scrappy, there is enough negative "white" space so we really needed the gray fabric to grab your attention. Sewing with scraps was actually a bit liberating, not having to match up any fabrics was a fun change for us.
When it came time to machine quilt this quilt I knew I could add some really awesome custom quilting, but we wanted to keep that cool, clean crisp look, so straight line quilting was the perfect choice. I really love how this quilt turned out.

In the book we also share color options for each quilt block, the block option in the book we used a fun pink print in place of the white print and a solid white fabric in place of the gray fabrics, it totally changed the feel of the quilt, but it's adorable too!

The pattern for Dappled is featured in our new book; Cabin Fever, 20 Modern Log Cabin Quilts. The pattern is written with three size options; baby, throw and coverlet.

  1. This is "simply" lovely. I love the red dot backing.....

  2. I am working on this quilt now. I just love how this very simple block, when turned in different directions, produces such an intricate result. I used a bunch of coordinating fat quarters, black, grey, grey-beige and have a wonderful white on white (little white circle pattern on the white) background fabric. While piecing the darks, I put them in a box and tossed them around so that they would be attached in a totally random way. I think I will go with your simple but elegant quilting design too as that was one of the things that attracted me to this quilt pattern. I just love how it is turning out and love the Cabin Fever book!
