    Scrappy Log Cabin

    Hot off the frame! This log cabin measures in at 100" square. All done from my scrap bins. I chose the barn raising setting as I really liked it. This is our winter quilt. Hubby decided we needed an extra heavy one for winter, so went shopping on ebay & got me wool Army blankets for the batting! Boy is this heavy! I told him when it needs washing he's taking it to the laundry mat!

    It's a beauty. Log cabin is on my to-do list and scrappy is probably what it will be. Thank you for sharing. Sounds like it will be warm and toasty.

    I would just build a frame for it, take it outside and hose it down when it came time to wash it. Hopefully, that won't be for a couple/few years at least. It is gorgeous!

    There was no intention to it, it was just random.
