I don’t know what it is with this yellow log-cabin quilt top that I just finished, but it has been a while since I completed a quilt-top that I am this pleased with. Something about collecting all these different shades of yellow and then getting the overall voice of the quilt to read “Sun-shine on an egg yolk!” Just as I intended it so read.

If you want to make your own version, the foundation papers for the log cabin is available in the shop: Log Cabin Foundation Papers

I am a happy quilter today!

  1. Love your yellow and white log cabin quilt.. I made one in shades of yellows
    to gold and purples to blue. It brightens up the room. Going to tie it instead of quilting. I remember being at my Granny’s house looking at all her quilts. She tied most of hers. Takes me back to so many happy sewing memories with her.

    1. Thank you! It is ended up getting an all over leafy pattern that is pretty open. Ideally I would have hand quilted it, but I didn’t have time so it got the digital treatment on a long-arm machine.

  2. So many people balk at Yellow! Ibsolutely love it! So sunny and crisp and clean- perfect for spring. What size is it?

    1. Hi Kathy, These quilt blocks are made with 1/2 inch logs. They are paper pieced and the paper piecing templates with instructions are in my shop.


    1. Hi Abby. thank you for such a nice comment. It is quite easy actually….because it is paper pieced. If you haven’t tried paper pieceing check out the log cabin tutorial video on the tutorial page of my website.
