Description

I had a sudden urge to sew something quick and easy and this design was very loosely based on something I saw on Pinterest. Comma was one of the first fabric lines that I bought, so I used my jelly roll to do a simple log cabin design.
 
Update: finished, but it needs a wash and then I'll take better photos in better lighting.
 
I love it! I had no goal in mind when I started, but I think this one's definitely a keeper!
 
Stats:
Finished size: 38.5" squared
Materials...
Blocks: Comma by Zen Chic (jelly roll) - - from M is for Make
Sashing: Essex linen in bleach white - from M is for Make
Backing: Essex linen in denim - from M is for Make
Binding: Comma - from M is for Make
Batting: Bamboo Blend (50% bamboo, 50% cotton) - from Ray Stitch
Thread: Aurifil 50 (2024)
 
Machine bound, using Red Pepper Quilts tutorial
 
Pattern: made it up as I went along! Log cabin blocks, inspired by this:
 
With hindsight, wondering whether I should have 'grouped' the colours in the blocks, i.e., made one orange block, one yellow block, one green block and one grey block. Ooooooohhhhhh - I feel another quilt coming on!!!  ;)

Looks great! I love Comma but haven't actually purchased it. I should have just bitten the bullet and bought it!

Now this is a log cabin I can get behind. Love the contemporary fabrics with the low volume. Purrr-fect.
