Island Batik Log Cabin Blog Hop

Hey all Welcome to the first day of the Island Batik Blog hop!



This week is all about log Cabins and I get to show of the Ancient Etchings fabric line by Jackie Kunkel of Canton Village Quilt Works for Island Batik.


I am usually one of the ambassadors who post my creations near the end of the month, but now you get to see me at the beginning!  Which means I do have a couple more seams to sew together before I quilt it this one, but it is still looking good!



I went with two different log cabins and mixed them together.  
The courthouse steps and the twisted log cabin.  




These colors are perfect for log cabins and are right up my ally with colorfulness!  And I really love the black turtle etchings in this line.  The extra two yards sent to me in my January box was perfect for the sashing and the borders.



I sewed these lovely fabrics together Schmetz Needles.  One of Island Batik Partners this year. 
I love these Needles. They are fantastic and I have been using them for years.




These fabrics are hitting your shops now so go check them out!  And check out Sharon Riley today.  She too is also showing off some Ancient Etchings!

If you need to find a shop in your area that carries Island Batik, check out the Store Locator at the Island Batik website.  

I am giving away some of my left over Ancient Etchings!  If you want a chance to win some 5 inch strips left over from my project leave a comment below and tell me what log cabin block is your favorite.


Update - I added another strip of the black fabrics for a total of 12 strips and rolled them up all Island Batik Stash Builder style.

Don't they look spiffy! I'll draw a random winner when the blog hop ends!


Also check out the Island Batik blog, they are giving a way some 
some precuts of Ancient Etchings as well.



Happy Quilting!

  3. I love the traditional log cabin block, I use up my scraps to make them and then just square them up to whatever size block I want. Sometimes they come out wonky because all the scraps aren't straight cuts, and sometimrs if I don't have a long enough piece, I strip piece scraps together to make a long one.

  4. I like the courthouse steps log cabin block the best. I guess I like straight lines best, since too many curves make me dizzy :)

  8. love your design and love the fabric. I like the cabins that give a curve visual. Don't know if I explained that very well:) So far I have only done the traditional block, but I hope to stretch myself this year.

  11. I am making a scrappy batik quilt right now, so your scraps would fit right in!! I love the uneven log cabin where one side has skinnier logs than the other. Thanks, Leah.

  32. I've made a lot of different types of log cabins, some with specialty rulers, and I always go back to the traditional log cabin. It's such a classic, and can really shine with different personalities depending on the fabric. I just love it, and its reliable feeling.
