Today I wanted to share another modern Log Cabin quilt pattern with you. The Log Cabin is a super traditional quilt block but there are so many variations!
And just because the basic block starts as a traditional block, doesn’t mean it can’t feel modern.
Log Cabin Challenge quilt
First though, I just got back my recent Log Cabin quilt that I made as part of the monthly Instagram block re-imagination challenges I have been participating in and I wanted to share.
I love the quilting! Isn’t it great? I love the design, I love the variegated thread we picked… just love it!
I am still sewing on the binding but I will share the full image once it’s done. This quilt feels like summer with it’s bright, warm colors. So happy!

New Modern Log Cabin Quilt Pattern – Ripples
One of my new patterns that came out with the Painted Blossoms batik fabric line is called Ripples.
The quilt is just a big, off center log cabin block.
Then I added the cool appliqué on top.
Of course, you can always skip the appliqué.
This would be such a great quilt to showcase some really awesome large print fabrics. I found these in my stash. Hmmm….
Where did the name come from?
Look at the appliqué shapes – don’t they look like the ripples you would see in the water if you tossed a nice rock?
Did you ever skip rocks in the water as a kid? The hardest part was finding just the right flat stone to use to skip.
August Block Challenge
This month for the block challenge on Instagram, we are re-imagining the Ocean Waves block. I love this block.
I can’t wait to show you how I redesigned it. You can follow along on IG but don’t worry if you don’t use IG; I will be posting about my block and my quilt here on the blog on August 25th!
