I hope everyone enjoyed our Log Cabin with a Twist project (Paradigm Shift). I am so happy with how it came together, but can’t wait to get started on our next project. As I have mentioned my father’s birthday is January 21st so in lieu of a Christmas quilt he will be getting a Birthday quilt. He loves the colors blue and gray and, well, he was born in the 40’s and was in college in the 60’s so I know he will love a blue/gray Batik Quilt. This one should go up fast and looks way harder than it is.
- Supernova Pattern from Fat Quarter Shop
- 1 Jelly Roll, Bali Pop or 40: 2/1”x 42” Strips of fabric
- 1 yd white or neutral fabric
- 3 1/2 yds for backing
- 1/2 yd for binding
- If you want your backing and binding to match you can just get 4 yards of your backing.
Here are the grays for my quilt. I think it will turn out really great! The backing fabric is on the bottom and then my ‘white/neutral’ is the light blue with the dots. I.Cannot.Wait.To.Get.Started!
Our first post will be up next week, in the mean time enjoy Thanksgiving with your families and friends. I will also be posting a list of upcoming projects through Mother’s day so you can see what you have to look forward too.
LOOKING FOR THIS QUILT? 1/8/17 I’VE REDONE THIS POST WITH A NEW PATTERN USING PRECUTS AND NOT YARDAGE. CLICK HERE TO BE REDIRECTED: http://cleverquiltstudio.com/finally-a-log-cabin-redeux/ I HOPE TO SEE Y’ALL OVER THERE!
I regret to inform you that the creator of the Paradigm Shift pattern that was published in America Makes Fast Quilts contacted me and requested that I remove ALL of my Paradigm Shift tutorials. I was unaware from the magazine article that the pattern was for sale on her website or that I was infringing on a copyright. Even though the magazine was cited and I suggested a compromise that would leave the integrity of the pattern intact and would allow the tutorials to stay up, she declined. All of the material regarding common quilting techniques such as chain stitching, matching seams, pinning, spraying, quilting and binding will be re-worked and will re-appear shortly under How It’s Done.
I am sorry for any inconvenience or disappointment this may have caused you and I look forward to bringing you different and more interesting tutorials in the future.
Even though this post is no longer available take a look around; I have a bunch of other fun and easy to do tutorials that you can find inspiration in!
Life as we know it has run away from me, but I promise (and I don’t use that word lightly) to have the binding tutorial up for you tomorrow. Until then here is a video that is from the Missouri Star Quilt Co. that I find super helpful and one that will come in handy when we start binding. Trust me when I say it will make the process easier.
Until tomorrow, have a fantastic day!
