I am so very excited to share my finished Cabin Among the Stars Quilt and the Free Cabin Among the Stars PDF with it!!!! I know you have all been patiently waiting for me to finish this up, which makes it all the more fun to share it. Didn't it just turn out so incredible, I love it!!!
This quilt is made with 2 simple blocks. The first block is a basic Sawtooth Star made in a Light and and Dark layout. And of course, I use the No Waste Flying Geese method to make those stars ;) And the second block is a basic Log Cabin block, alternating dark and light prints. Both blocks are super easy to make, and this quilt is an amazing stash buster!!! It's nothing but scraps!!!
I choose to use scraps in all neutrals. The lights are neutrals in whites and cremes and the darks are neutrals in black, greys, and browns. I have been wanting to make an all neutral quilt for sometime, and I have to say, I just love the way it turned out and can't wait to make another one!!! And double bonus, I can now close my grey, brown, and black scraps drawers that were overflowing ;)
When it came time to quilt it, I decided on an all over Open Centered Swirl. I quilted on a slightly larger scale than I usually do so it went really fast and was oh so much fun to quilt. I used my favorite 402 So Fine which blended perfectly into the low volume background and still blended great on the darker prints. Have I mentioned how much I love 402, and I broke into my last spool with this quilt, time for another thread order :)
