I really like the traditional log cabin block. I wanted to give it a twist by first making the block into a 45-degree diamond. Then, to give it an update I used a gray chevron fabric for the back ground. I think this choice of fabric almost gives it a gray tweed look when cut up. I also changed up the traditional Barn Raising Quilt pattern by setting the blocks in a Carpenters Star.
The main solids used are Shot Cottons by Kaffe Fassett for Westminster Fabrics. I would love to remake this quilt using the Wonky Strip in Gunmetal from Tula Pink's True Colors. Quilting by David Hurd.
