    I think it is a wonderful full of eye delight quilt, fantabulous. BTW I just love the Warm n Natural wadding and their soft n brite is wonderful for kiddiewink quilts.

I subscribe to the theory that all fabrics can co-exist in a scrap quilt, and I don't care which ones share a seam, as long as they aren't from the same bolt. I did use some medium fabrics that muddy up the pattern in places, but I kind of like that too because it keeps your eye moving (that's my story and I'm sticking to it).

    The blocks are 7.5" finished, quilt measures 90" square. I used Soft and Bright poly batting (from the Warm Company, makers of Warm and Natural) and quilted it in swirls. I really like that batting. I started to try to do some ruler work for the quilting (needed the practice after taking the craftsy class), but quickly realized it wouldn't show up with such a busy pattern. So... one area actually has a couple of big stars quilted in it, and the rest is the swirls. I think I'll pretend that I did that on purpose too.

    DUNSTER - you never cease to amaze me......this is just beautiful!! I love the scrappy look of this......like the swirl quilting......like everything about not!!!

    Really nice quilt and the colors are great even the muddy ones. Terrific job and I'd try another one just to make sure you use up all you scraps. it looks like it was real hard to make. Job well done.

    Several people asked about a pattern for this quilt. I'm not aware of a written pattern, but the quilt is very simple to make. It's made from a single block, shown below. You can use the blocks to form various patterns. I made my patches 2.5" (finished), so the finished block size is 7.5". You could of course make the patches larger or smaller.

    Dunster you did an awesome job on this log cabin scrap quilt. I myself have never done a log cabin but if I try one using my scraps I sincerely hope it comes out like yours did. The light colors against the dark really make it pop. Great job.

    Arkansas Crossroads is similar, but not the same. Here's a picture of it - http://www.etsy.com/listing/57938797...-scrappy-quilt

    I love it. That's been on my WAD list for some time. Maybe it needs to jump forward a bit. Thanks for sharing.

    First, I LOVED your quilt (on my bucket list), but I want to ask you something about how you posted this picture. It has an option to "click to view larger image". What tab did you use to post your photo?. There is one that says "insert image" and then there is one for an attachment
