I'm a few days late for the Island Batik November challenge. (This really is something I plan on working on in 2019!) For November, we were challenged to incorporate a log cabin block or log cabin variations into our project using any of our Island Batik fabrics. As a modern quilter, I enjoy putting a modern twist on traditional quilt blocks. In searching for ideas, I found the book "Log Cabin Restructured" at my local library.
I like that you have to look close to see that the blocks are, indeed, a log cabin variation, and I like the improv look the quilt has. (This would be a fun pattern to try again with just 2 or 3 solid colors.) I was able to make 25 blocks using most of the Island Stacks, and the quilt ended up 40" x 40"...a perfect size for a baby quilt!
I backed the quilt with a pale green Kona solid I have had in my stash forever. I remember buying multiple yards of it because it was on sale, and I thought "building a stash" meant buying lots of fabric when you found a good deal. It worked well with this quilt, though, so I'm glad I had it.
