Log Cabin Toss Quilt Along - Week 1

Welcome to week 1 of the Log Cabin Toss Quilt Along.  I am so excited you will be joining in.



Designed to be fun, casual and relaxed so that you can work through making your very own Log Cabin Toss quilt over the coming 5 weeks - I am looking forward to having you join in. Everything you need to get you started is here along with the Schedule for the coming 5 weeks.


If you are wanting to join in - it's not too late at all (you can join in at any point). To participate all you need to join in is:


1. Get the Log cabin Toss Quilt pattern here


2. Sign up for the Newsletter here  


3. Post your pics from the weeks prompts on Instagram to #logcabintossqal#logcabintossquiltand #tiedwitharibbonpatterns.  It also helps to tag me - @tiedwitharibbon to make sure I see your post.


This week is all about choosing and deciding which fabric you will use to make your Log Cabin Quilt as well as getting it cut up.  Make sure to check out the #logcabintossquilt hashtag for inspiration.


Week 1 - Selecting your Fabric

This weeks task is all about selecting and choosing the fabric you would like to make your Quilt from. Post a pic to Instagram, using the above hash tags of your fabric pull or quilt planning to show us what you will be making your Log Cabin Toss Quilt from and to be in the running for this weeks prizes.


This is where the sky is the limit - whether you choose Solids or Prints this quilt works.  You can grab fabrics from your stash or use a collection.


Make sure you check out my last Blog Post – here you will find my tip for how I chose the fabrics for my Log Cabin Toss Quilt.

You can also see here in this Reel I made how I do this.



For this quilt - multi directional prints work best and are easiest.  Geometrics work well as well as smaller scale prints.  Florals and novelty fabrics are especially good for this quilt.  



Solids work so well for this Quilt and the choices of different Fabric Company Solids is huge.  One way to do this is head over to Pinterest and search Colour Palettes - this gives you lots of boards with a selection of colours already that co-ordinate and work well together.  From here you can pick and choose solids for any colour palette you like.



This design also works perfectly to pull fabrics from your stash if you want to go with a scrappy vibe.  You will really make a dent in your scrap bucket with this quilt. 


Cutting your Fabric

Now that you have chosen your fabrics, this week is also all about cutting into them.  


So this weeks task is to post a pic to Instagram using the hashtags #logcabintossqal,#logcabintossquilt and #tiedwitharibbonpatterns of the fabrics that you intend to use for your own Two Hearts Quilt or maybe them cut up.  It could be you planning out your choices or a lovely bundle of what you have chosen - get creative, or even your cut fabrics all laid out beautifully.  It helps to tag me - @tiedwitharibbon to make sure I see your post and of course your Profile has to be set to Public for me to see it.  


I'm so excited to see what fabrics and colours you are choosing - no matter what you go with these will look bold and beautiful in this modern design.

Happy Quilting
