Today I’m sharing a Ruby Star Society Warp and Weft Honey Lucky Log Cabins Quilt. I made this quilt for Ruby Star Society a few months ago using their upcoming Warp and Weft Honey fabric line.
I didn’t take a lot of in progress photos while making this quilt since I needed to get it done quickly. But if you have made a Lucky Log Cabins quilt then you know getting it done quickly isn’t a problem. Lucky Log Cabins is such a quick and easy and FUN quilt to sew up. I’ve made so many of these quilts now and am still not tired of sewing them up.
Warp and Weft Honey fabric by Ruby Star Society
Warp and Weft Honey complements the previous Warp and Weft wovens by Ruby Star Society. Honey has some brighter hues and blacks in the line. I used all of the prints in the Warp and Weft Honey fat quarter bundle for this Lucky Log Cabins quilt. I did end up using less of the black strips and instead replaced them with some of the brighter colors in the fabric line.
I’m a big fan of the Ruby Star Society Warp and Weft fabrics. These fabrics are a thinner wovens type of fabric and make the softest quilts ever. I used the Ruby Star Society Wovens for the first time on this Patchwork Flying Geese Quilt and it has quickly become our favorite quilt.
It’s the quilt we all reach for first in the living room.
Sewing with Warp and Weft Wovens
Warp and Weft fabrics are a little thinner than a quilting cotton and have a looser weave. You do have to handle them a little more carefully than a quilting cotton but I don’t mind quilting with them and wouldn’t hesitate to keep using them. I treat them the same as other quilting fabrics but I do use a smaller stitch length like 1.8 when sewing them.
The end result of these warp and weft fabrics is the softest, drapiest quilts ever.
Lucky Log Cabins Quilt Pattern
If you ever find yourself with a fat quarter bundle and don’t know what to make with it.. try the Lucky Log Cabins quilt pattern! It’s perfect for those fat quarter bundles that have a range of colors from light to dark. Since Lucky Log Cabins doesn’t have a background or accent fabric you can easily mix an entire range of colors in this quilt.
I really love making Lucky Log Cabins quilts when the fat quarter bundle has lighter neutrals like this Warp and Weft Honey line. Those lighter prints would mix right into a white background so a quilt like this is a great way to use these fabrics.
I have made so many Lucky Log Cabins quilts over the past couple of years. You can see all of them here.
