I have yet another Lucky Log Cabins quilt to share today! This is my Quilty Love Palette Picks Lucky Log Cabins quilt. I’ve made quite a few of these Log Cabin quilts and am currently sewing up another. If I had to pick a favorite Quilty Love pattern, today it would be this one..haha.
I sewed up this Lucky Log Cabins quilt using my brand new Palette Picks bundle for Robert Kaufman. The palette picks bundle is in shops now. This was such a fun project to do with Robert Kaufman. I curated this bundle of 20 fat quarters using fabrics from their basics lines.
Stash buster series inspiration
Did you know my Robert Kaufman Palette Picks bundle was the inspiration behind Lucky Log Cabins? It inspired the entire Stash Buster Series in fact. When Robert Kaufman asked me to curate this bundle I knew I wanted to create quilt patterns that used these fabrics only. That is where the stash buster series came from. And Lucky Log Cabins was the first quilt pattern in the Quilty Love Stash Buster Series.
Strip Pieced Quilt
Lucky Log Cabins is a quick and easy strip pieced quilt. This is one of those really great mindless sewing quilts because you don’t have to put much thought into fabric placement. Or practically no thought. I actually like when like colors meet up and end up next to each other.
The only fabric placement I think about in this quilt is when I’m sewing my strip sets. It’s still very random but I place strips next to each other that flow well.
The ultimate stash buster quilt pattern
Lucky Log Cabins is a true stash buster! This one is going to actually put a dent in your stash since it doesn’t use any background fabric. You can use fat quarters, jelly rolls, quarter yards, half yards or even fat eighths. Or mix and match strips from any of those cuts.
All the quilt sizes
Not only is Lucky Log Cabins a really great stash buster, it includes all the quilt sizes! I’ve included every size from baby size all the way up to king size in the pattern. I’ve done all the math for you so you can start sewing through your stash. This Palette Picks version is the large throw size.
Here are all of the quilt sizes included in this quilt pattern:
- Baby size -38″ x 47″
- Small throw -47″ x 57″
- Throw -57″ x 66″
- Large throw -66″ x 76″
- Twin size -66″ x 95″
- Full size -85″ x 95″
- Queen size -95″ x 114″
- King size -114″ x 114″
Quick, Easy and beginner friendly
Lucky Log Cabins is a stash buster plus it’s quick and easy! It’s kind of addicting to make too. I think that is why I have made so many of them already.
I would call this one an ambitious beginner quilt. There are some seams to line up but if you press to the side and pin you shouldn’t have any trouble with that. If you square up all of your blocks to the exact same size like I recommend in the pattern then the quilt top goes together easy peasy since you don’t have to line up any seams there.
Scrappy, happy quilt
I really love how scrappy and happy these Lucky Log Cabin quilts turn out! Speaking of scrappy, this could be a scrappy quilt too! Grab all of your 2.5 inch strips from your scrap stash and start sewing!
Long Arm quilting
I sent this Quilty Love Palette Picks Lucky Log Cabin off to Knot and Thread for quilting. I love this circular quilting pantograph that she chose.
Grid backing fabric
I chose this modern neutral grid fabric for the backing of this bright and colorful quilt. I wanted to tone down the backing since the front was so bright. The grid fabric is Sevenberry Classic Plaid. It’s such a gorgeous neutral fabric!
Look! The yellow couch made an appearance in this one! Sadly, we let the yellow couches go so this was it’s very last photo shoot. It was a good one to go out on…haha. If we had enough space in this house I would have held on to them just for the photo opportunities.
