Scrap Quilt Challenge + My Scrappy Log Cabin Quilt + A Free Log Cabin Block Pattern

Have you heard about Fabrics N Quilts annual

It's a great opportunity to bust through some of those scraps that I know you all have lying around (wink, wink).  PLUS, you get the chance to win some fabulous prizes!!!  Simply upload a photo of a scrappy quilt (that you finished this year) to the Scrap Quilt Challenge 5 Flickr Page by midnight on October 15th (that's just two more weeks, friends!) and you could win BIG!!! Click HERE for more details!

As one of the featured designers for this challenge,
I wanted to share with you my recently finished Scrappy Log Cabin Quilt!


I started this fun paper piecing project about 7 months ago 
and loved every minute of it!
♥ ♥ ♥
Now, there are lots of ways to make a Log Cabin block but I decided to go the paper piecing route because... 

#1 I love to paper piece
#2 I didn't have to pre-cut or press my strips
#3 Paper piecing ensures perfectly straight, square blocks!


Here are some details about my quilt:

Finished block size = 7"
Finished quilt size = 70" x 84"
Total number of blocks = 120
Total number of pieces = 1,560
Machine quilted by Cathy Barney in Alpine, UT.
Quilting design = Modern Loops
