Fairyland Cabin Quilt

I have been wanting to make a large log cabin quilt forever, I mean forrreeevveerr! Like 5 years or more but for some reason I never have made one. So Wednesday I decided when I woke up to make one and to make it using all of my hoarded novelty fabrics. I pulled out my Far Far Away 1 & 2 , ladybugs, Henna Garden, Mendocino mermaids, and so much more and started sewing.

Fairyland Cabin Quilt


This quilt was one of the fastest and easiest quilts I have made that is lap size or larger! It only took me 2 days to finish the whole thing.

The girls and I snuggled under it last night watching tv and it was so fun to stare at all the awesome fabrics. I think this is my favorite corner. You can also kind of see how I quilted it. I did wavy lines 1" - 2" apart. It took a long time but it was way worth it.

I used a Nicey Jane print for the binding but was missing a small section so I added in my aqua Mingle print which makes it really fun!

The back of the quilt is It's a Hoot dot in pink and a long strip of Farmdale blossoms in aqua. I really think aqua & pink is one of my favorite color combos! This quilt was so fun to piece together and I just love how fun it is.

How cute! I think that is a wonderful idea. I have been looking for a pattern to use for my favorite fabric.
