Contemporary Quilts from Classic Log Cabin Blocks
You might think Log Cabin blocks are very predictable in design—red center block with dark fabric strips added to one side, and light strips added to the other. Not necessarily! This week we welcome Natalia Bonner, author and modern quilt designer, who takes an unconventional approach to traditional Log Cabin block design. Tune in and watch part one and two of Cabin Fever Quilts, on this Sewing With Nancy series.
In Cabin Fever Quilts part two, we’ll start by creating Natalia’s Dappled Quilt. Natalia’s intricate design of intersecting squares starts with a very simple Log Cabin quarter-log block on point. Watch as we show you the tricks of modern quilting and soon, you too, will have cabin fever.
Next up in Cabin Fever Quilts part two, we’ll break down Natalia’s Nonchalant quilt—an easy one-block quilt made in just two colors plus white.
Once you’ve given yourself permission to change the traditional, there’s no stopping the creative options. In this quilt, Peaches and Cream, Natalia starts with the quarter-log block and adds Snowball block corners. Intrigued? Watch Cabin Fever Quilts part two.
Watch Cabin Fever Quilts (part one and two) on Sewing With Nancy online.
Then, check out the book, Cabin Fever Quilts—20 Modern Log Cabin Quilts by Natalia Bonner and Kathleen Whiting. Natalia and Kathleen have included twenty modern Log Cabin quilt designs along with bonus instructions for coordinating pillows.
