Log cabin quilts are one of the easiest blocks to make. This quilt is great for beginners or for the more experienced quilter who is looking for a fast quilt to make.
Another traditional quilt block pattern is the Chevron. What’s really nice about this pattern is that it really stands the test of time. We now have many variations of this block. Every quilt is unique depending on the size of the chevron pattern and the colors you use. Take a look at a few of the patterns I found, and you will see big variations on this one block.
P.S. If you purchase a pattern from the links above, I may receive a small commission. Thank you for contributing to my fabric stash fund.
I’m back from quilt camp and cannot believe how much I got done! I was able to finish this Ohio Star Quilt. The fabrics are a 6-inch bundle from Craftsy.com. The line of fabric is called Boundless, and the color way is called Crayon Box.
When these arrived, I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with them. Then I knew I was going to do Ohio Star blocks. Once I had a few of them, I could see, with the luscious colors, all this quilt needed was a little bit of black fabric for the border to make these colors really pop!
P.S. Craftsy is one of my favorite websites for video quilt classes. And I’m starting to get hooked on their fabrics too!
I wanted to show you two more quilts I have made using Triangles on a Roll. I have been determined to bring down the size of my scrap pile and these quilts are great for using up those scraps, big and small, especially using my Scrapmaster method!
These quilts are made with 2-inch Half Square Triangles from Triangles on a Roll.
I am obsessed with Half Square Triangles this year. I have tried every method on how to create them. Some are more accurate than others. For me, using the Triangles on a Roll is the best way because it helps control my quarter inch seam, and the paper acts as a foundation when cutting them apart. The cuts that are on the bias are less likely to stretch as I cut.
Magic Squares is one of my favorite scrap-busting quilt patterns. It is made with Triangles on a Roll 2-inch Half Square Triangle paper. I was able to really use a lot of my scraps on this one!
