GO! Scrappy Little Diamond Quilt and Free Pattern!!!

 I am so excited to share a new finish today!!! Isn't it just so happy making!!!   I have made lots of variations on Log Cabin quilts, and lots and lots of Log Cabin Blocks, but never a true "Log Cabin Quilt".  Until now . . .here is my Scrappy Little Diamond Quilt!!!!      And there is a free PDF Pattern that you can download right here :) 

The Scrappy Little Diamond Quilt is made using the AccuQuilt Log Cabin BOB .  This is a great way to really go through your scrap bins.   And since my Red and Pink binds wouldn't shut, I figured they were the perfect color combo for this quilt.  (with a little pop of purple, because ya know, I love purple!!)  Log Cabin Blocks are such a great scrap buster, but I think we avoid them sometimes because cutting a billion 1 1/2" strips is kind of daunting.  But cutting with AccuQuilt is great for cutting up your scraps quick and efficiently  ;)     Scrappy Little Diamond Quilt finishes at 48" x 48" so it is a great baby to lap size quilt.   

Log Cabin blocks are just so much fun to make!!!   I started the centers with my little 1 1/2" purple square and then added pink and red strips moving outward.   And you have endless options for layouts of Log Cabin blocks, but I loved this little Diamond pattern ;)    Below is a list of the dies I used to make these log cabin blocks, you only need the one BOB, and the Binding one is optional ;)   

And when it came time to quilt it, I decided on a loose all over feather design.  I love how it just adds so much curvy goodness to all of those straight lines in the piecing.   And I love all of the texture it adds as well, makes it so snuggly good!! 

And that is my Scrappy Little Diamond Quilt.   I hope you love it as much as I do ;)   Isn't this picture AccuQuilt took of it just so great!!!  I love seeing it styled in a home setting.    And if you want to make your own, you can download the free PDF Scrappy Little Diamond Pattern Here.   And when you are done I would love to see it!!!    You can share a picture on social media with #happyquiltingwithmc and tag me at @happyquiltingmc or you can always email me a picture at  I can't wait to see your Scrappy Little Diamond Quilts!!
