How to Choose Log Cabin Block Fabrics
A scrappy quilt is always an adventure as multitudes of fabrics are combined together. To keep those fabrics working well together, consider how colors are mixed together. In this quilt, the center block sets the basic color scheme. While many other colors may be added, the center block colors are repeated within the block. This maintains a level of coordination within the block which makes it more appealing to look at.
Tricks to a Scrappy Log Cabin Quilt Block
A scrappy quilt is defined by all the different scrap pieces of fabric used within the quilt. So don’t hold back! Pull out your scrap fabrics, stash fabrics and don’t forget your fat quarter and other precuts. Combining fat quarters within the mix gives you more fabric to work with. Just a single strip or two from a handful of fat quarters can add lots of interest.
What makes one scrappy quilt stand out from another? Generally it’s an overall plan that keeps all the blocks working together. Repeating the central color within each block is a good place to start. Also keep the strips in different widths. Rather than place three strips together that are all the same size, be sure to keep some narrow or wider than others.
Keep the colors you want to emphasize in the center of your blocks and make them the wider side strips. Use the narrow strips as an accent to bring in other prints and colors for more interest. Keeping a bit of color coordination within your blocks will create a much more appealing quilt design.
