Today I’m sharing a Christmas Lucky Log Cabins quilt! This fast and easy stash buster is sewn up using the Alison Glass Holiday line.
If I could only ever make one quilt for the rest of my quilting days it would probably be Lucky Log Cabins..haha. I’ve made so many Lucky Log Cabins and could still make so many more.
Lucky Log Cabins is part of the Quilty Love Stash Buster series and a stash buster it is. Mix and match fabric strips from your stash for this log cabin look alike quilt.
Lucky Log Cabins is in the Quilty Love pattern shop here.
Christmas Lucky Log Cabins quilt
For this Lucky Log Cabins quilt, I used Alison Glass Holiday fabric. This fabric is the leftovers from another star quilt I made. It was probably equivalent to a fat eighth bundle. I cut it up into strips and then added a few Alison Glass Kaleidoscope fabrics from my stash.
What I love the most about Lucky Log Cabins is how you can use leftover bundles like this. Lucky Log Cabins is super versatile and perfect for those odd fabric bundles you have sitting in your stash.
I’m convinced everything looks good in Lucky Log Cabins after making and seeing dozens upon dozens of them.
The ultimate stash buster quilt pattern
Lucky Log Cabins is the first in the Quilty Love stash buster quilt pattern series. It is a true stash buster! Lucky Log Cabins is a strip pieced quilt that doesn’t require any background or accent fabrics. So most precuts in your stash will work. Use jelly roll strips, fat eighths, fat quarters, 1/4 yards, half yards or anything you can cut 2.5 inch strips from.
Quick and Easy quilt pattern
Lucky Log Cabins is a super quick and easy quilt pattern to sew up. It’s actually a really fun one to sew up too. I keep saying that it is addicting to make because it really is! You will be thinking about 6 other versions you want to sew up when you make one.
Scrappy and Happy
Lucky Log Cabins is a nice and scrappy quilt. That makes piecing super fast and easy since all fabric placement is random. The only thought I put into fabric placement is when I’m making the strip sets. I try to make my strip sets flow.
So a lot of the time I’m placing fabrics next to each other that flow well or play nicely together. It’s not super critical since in the end it all gets mixed anyways.
You can see my strip sets below.
Lucky Log Cabins quilt pattern
I named this log cabin look alike pattern “lucky” because that is how it came about. This is one of those rare times that I took the time to just play as I was sewing. I had no design in mind but just started cutting and sewing. I almost scrapped this idea because it just wasn’t coming together. After the project sat away for a while, I pulled it back out and worked on it with fresh eyes. This log cabin shape emerged.
I call this a log cabin look alike because it’s not a true log cabin block. Log Cabin blocks start with a center “log” and then you build log’s around it. But the end result of this quilt reminds me of the classic log cabin quilt block.
Bright and colorful Christmas Lucky Log Cabins quilt
This Alison Glass Holiday line is a fun, bright and happy Christmas line. It’s got your traditional green and reds but also includes some fun pinks, teals and yellows. The end result is a fun and happy Christmas quilt. This fabric line is from a few years ago so it might be getting harder to find.
Long Arm Quilting
Jenae of Vintage Stitch quilted up this Christmas Lucky Log Cabins quilt. The pantograph is called Ikat. Jenae also did the binding for me. She offers binding services with her quilting so you can get your quilt back completely finished! It’s like magic.
Peppered Cotton Wideback
The backing of this Christmas Lucky Log Cabins quilt is a Peppered cotton widleback. I love the peppered cotton wide backs and even carry a few in my shop.
