New log cabin pillowcases from scraps

What is it with me and log cabin pillows? I just love making it!

Quilted Pillow Cases

I’ve made a new batch with the leftovers from my pink quilt!

Quilted Pillow Cases

I love sewing fabrics together “in the round” which actually create this colorful and square. Log Cabin quilt designs are among the most popular and easily recognized of all quilt patterns. You start with a center shape (usually a square) and then traditionally you enlarge it by sewing strips in sequence around the sides of the square, varying the values between light and dark. Mine are always made out of scraps and not very color coordinated. The scrappy style is vintage and comes from recycling what you have left after other projects!

This time I’ve made five new pillow cases all together, though one is not an actual log cabin but a mix of fabric stripes! I’m going to add all of these to my Etsy but if you’re interested in one or more let me know right now so I don’t have to etsy them up (upload and pay)! Three pinkish, one blue and one mixed is for sale for 23 U$D/each plus postage:

If you want to know when I put them up on etsy please join my newsletter! I”ve been planning to send one out the entire summer so I guess I should just add it to my to do-list right now and then write one soonish… I send out information on updates just a few times each year for both I Shop with mom and my etsy shop, though I don’t update or work with these very much at all. I get so much inspiration when I sell something but it does not happen very often at all.

Thanks and have a creative week ye’all!

    Log cabin’s are one of my favorite designs. Do you just grab a fabric (in it’s light/dark value)and sew or do you try to plan what fabric goes next?

  11. iHanna says:

    Thank you sweeties!

    I don’t plan very much – I just grab what I think will look good next to the previous piece of fabric…. So it’s not made blindly, but not planning ahead either! I make something I think will be pretty and hope for the best!

    Hi Hanna,
    thanks for commenting on my blog so I could find yours! I LOVE these pillows. It’s been a long time since I’ve done any patchwork & my log cabin blocks tend to be traditional American type of fabrics. Your fabric & color choices are wonderful & romantic which I like very much.
