Low Volume Log Cabin

I have finally finished the top for my low volume log cabin quilt.  I was inspired to make this quilt after finishing my first ever low volume quilt (see my previous low volume posts).  I had squares and scraps left over that just screamed to be made into log cabin blocks.

I like the idea of the structured pattern of a log cabin with the random low volume scraps.  All my other log cabins blocks have had a uniformed repeating colour pattern so when they are placed they form an overall quilt patterns.  For example:

The blocks in this quilt make for a scrappy quilt with no over all pattern.  I find myself looking at the fabric and not at the block pattern.  I tried to use lots of different fabrics – geometrics, stripes, dots and lots of novelties.  Hopefully some kid will appreciate looking at all the fun bits and pieces to be found within the quilt.  Now onto quilting….
