Today I'm sharing a rainbow bright Quilty Cabins quilt in the Throw size! This happy quilt has hearts encircled with log cabin logs. The quilt pattern includes 6 sizes and is fat quarter friendly.
The hearts are pieced into the blocks and are NOT appliqued on. :)
Quilty Cabins Pattern Features
Quilty Cabins includes all of the quilt sizes - 6 in all - Baby, Throw, Twin, Square Queen, Rectangular Queen, and King. It's such a great value for your dollar, and you'll use the quilt pattern more than once. :)
You'll love that Quilty Cabins is stash friendly! You can use your stash of fat quarters in Quilty Cabins, or use a FQ bundle of your favorite fabric collection.
There are two layout options in Quilty Cabins. This quilt is made in the Traditional layout where the "logs" in the blocks create a "square" design where they meet. The second layout is Offset, in which the "logs" in the blocks create flowing waves down the quilt top. You can see an example of the Offset layout in this blog post.
A Rainbow of Fabrics
Fabrics in this Quilty Cabins quilt are from the Dream collection by Kristy Lea for Riley Blake Designs with a background of white. They are fun, bright prints encompassing the entire rainbow, and many are tone-on-tones which read as solids. Then there are those cute rainbows and puffy clouds!
We carry fat quarter bundles of Dream in our shop. Click here to see them.
The backing is a yellow sunburst wide back which is no longer available in our shop, and the binding is a blue print from the collection.
The bright and happy quilt on the ladder in the background of the picture above is Hand Picked, also made in Dream by Riley Blake Designs. The Hand Picked quilt pattern is jelly roll friendly, includes 5 sizes, and is strip pieced. Click here to see the Hand Picked quilt pattern in our shop.
The quilt design on this quilt is Double Bubble, quilted in white thread on my Handi Quilter Fusion with Pro Stitcher. It's a fun circle design that stitches out without a lot of stitching over previous stitches, which I prefer not to happen.
This quilt top was made by one of my sewists, Kare, in August of 2022.
