Scrappy Half Log Cabin Stashbuster


I just finished this scrappy half log cabin top with the goal of emptying a bag of strings that had been lollygagging around for a long time.  The blocks began with 2" light squares, and were built out to 10" using random width strings.The light fabric used for the corner squares and inner borders consumed an odd less-than-a-yard chunk from my stash.  I used several different leftover ends of red solids to tie everything together.  

No particular destination for this quilt -- it was just a scrapbuster.

Well, I just love red. I really like the contemporary off kilter feel of the squares, although it is an old pattern. Nice job!

Very nice - another idea for my 'to do' list :)

Your quilt has such an antique feel. Congratulations.
I've made some of these handkerchief blocks but mine often look odd. I hadn't thought of using a common outer row. I notice yours are slightly different reds of slightly different sizes. Fabulous idea.
Thanks for sharing.

I love how you tied it all together with the common theme of the scrappy reds. I love red as an accent color!
