Quarter Cabins in Mesa Verde {Log Cabin Blog Hop with Island Batik} + {Pattern Premiere}

Today is my day to share as part of the Island Batik Ambassador Log Cabin blog hop!


I have been hard at work on this quilt this month -- featuring the new line, Mesa Verde! As an Island Batik Ambassador, I am provided with samples of various lines of Island Batik fabrics, Aurifil thread, Accuquilt products, and Hobbs Batting to use and share with you!


This line is a fun Western-inspired collection featuring greens, creams, golds, and browns!


For my quilt, I am using our new Honey, Bunny, and Doll pattern, Quarter Cabins, to show off these lovely fabrics! 


I used the 20 fabrics to make 25 blocks for this quilt, which finishes at 51" square.


For the quilting, I used a gold-brown Aurifil thread for the quilting and did meandering across the quilt. For the batting, I used a wool blend Hobbs Batting. Thank you to Aurifil and Hobbs Batting for sponsoring the Island Batik Ambassador program!

Frankie the bunny had to inspect the quilt after it was trimmed before the binding was added!


I used one of the dark brown prints for the binding.


This pattern is also now available on our Etsy and Payhip sites! Pick up a copy of this super easy and fun pattern for your next quick project!

I also have a giveaway today -- of a big pile of my Mesa Verde scraps!

  21. And I have a tendency to grab whatever fabrics most appeal to me in store, online or in my stash. So I don't have any one line of fabric I would use to make the quarter cabin quilt. Just whatever I was in the mood for at that moment!
