Rolling Log Cabin

I am sewing everyday making quilts for my new Jelly Roll book. It will be released in late fall. It is so much fun figuring out the math (did I really say that?) to use the strips to best advantage rather than just cutting them up to sew traditional quilt blocks. Here is one I just finished. It is a "wonky" log cabin. Wonky being a new word for crazy in quilt making. A hundred years ago this would have been called a Crazy Log Cabin Quilt. I am calling the quilt Tipsy Log Cabin. I used a Moda jelly roll called "Twirl" and a fabric called Ziggy Candy by Timeless Treasures for the borders. And, oops, I broke my rule not to ever do another mitered corner on borders.

Tipsy Log Cabin - to be quilted, this is only the quilt top. I love it, what do you think?


  1. I love it too.The logs are very nice look like they are in motion. Love your colorful fabrics choice.

  2. It's hard to go wrong with a log cabin quilt! I love how happy this one is! Good use of the jelly roll and you found the perfect border to go with it!

  3. It's definitely wonky and I love it. I really look forward to your book. I think Jelly rolls are great - to buy, or to cut from your own fabric. And I look forward to making lots of Jelly roll quilts.
