Scrappy Log Cabin Quilt-A-Long 2015

Is your scrap bin overflowing? Do you want to bust some scraps but just not sure what you want to make? Or are you looking for a fast pattern and to have some fun with others in a Quilt A Long?

Well, you are in the right place! On 1/1/15 I am co-hosting a QAL with Katherine of Honey Hill Designs, Kim of Javadiva on Instagram , Elnora of Elnorac on Instagram and Stephanie of The Lady in  Thread on Facebook. We will all use Instagram, but in addition Kaki and I will also be blogging, and Stephanie will also be sharing on Facebook. You should have no problem finding a way to follow the QAL if you want in!

The QAL kicks off on Jan.1 and will run 6 weeks through 2/14/15. Each week will be hosted by one of us and there will be a link up and a prize. There will be a grand prize drawing with Kaki of Honey Hill Designs on 2/14/15. 

Starting Mon 12/22 each of us will be posting about the QAL and sharing what block/quilt we have chosen to make. Don't be surprised that each of us have chosen something different! That is the fun of it. You will get to choose which one you want to make and still follow along with everyone else - just think how many others projects based off of a log cabin block you will get to see. 

I have chosen the Converging Corners block from  FITF  Film in the Fridge. This has been on my "make list" since I first saw it. There is room for interpretation and the tutorial is about technique and not numbers. I think that just makes each project that much more personal and different!

My inspiration quilt is from Heather over at Aqua Reef Studios

Host schedule is as follows: 
We begin/announce our week of hosting on Sunday and we do our giveaway on Saturday. 
Week 1...1/4-1/10 is elnorac
Week 2...1/11-1/17 is javajiva 
Week 3...1/18-1/25 is kakiofhoneyhill 
Week 4...1/26-1/31 is fishcreekstudio 
Week 5...2/1-2/7 is theladyinthread 
Week 6...2/8-2/14 is kakiofhoneyhill

2/14/15 will be the day to post your finished quilt or quilt top. Ultimately it would be nice to see a finished quilt, but a finished quilt top may be more realistic. The 2/14/15 giveaway will require you to have pieced your quilt top together

In order to be entered for the giveaway for each week the participants need to post at least one progress picture on Instagram and tag it with #scrappylogcabinQAL.  
Next you just need comment on the host's giveaway picture

And in case you don't have alot of scraps or would like to add some variety to you scraps Pink Castle Fabrics has made up some scrap packs in the event you need more... 

So get to stripping that stash and sorting those scraps!

I can't wait to see what everyone picks and all the ensuing scrappiness!

Happy Stitching!


  1. It's been on my "to do" list as well and I've got an idea in my head about what I'm going to make. I love the concept of interpreting the method and can't wait to see what the other bloggers have up their sleeve.

  2. i thnk i may play along! fyi, javadivas name is misspelled in the host schedule :o)

  3. I think I might have to come along too... I've been wanting to make a log cabin quilt for my daughter for ages. I've got a rectangular layout that I'd like to try.

  4. I love the converging corners quilt! I was in a Bee last year (2013) and had my Bee members make me that block, they have been sitting untouched ever since....maybe it's time to break it out and finish it up!

  5. I would love to join but my scraps are looking pretty ugly these days.


Thanks for the comment! I love hearing from you!
