Scrappy Log Cabin Quilt...

I finished up my latest quilt this morning... an "uneven scrappy log cabin" quilt.  I used all fabrics from my stash and tried to keep it light, bright, and vintagy:)   I made this for our elementary school principal who is retiring.

It came out a nice size, not too big or too small, just right to use on a picnic or snuggle up on the couch with.  There are twenty 12" blocks in total and I chose not to put a border on it.

The back is made from a vintage sheet that I have been hanging on too for awhile(luckily I still have more of it to make something else, I love the summer feel of it).

I kept the quilting to a minimum, just went verticle, horizontal, and criss cross.  The blocks are all random in fabric(including the strip sizes), the only thing I kept consistant were the traditional red center squares.
I'm really pleased with how it turned out and if it weren't already a gift for someone special I would want to keep it for myself :)

Have a lovely day!,
