Win It!!! Modern Log Cabin Quilting


The name Modern Log Cabin Quilting seems like an oxymoron. How could a log cabin quilt be modern? I know that quilts can be modern, I’ve blogged about it here, here and here. However, when you throw the words log cabin in there you kind of have a “hugh-what” moment. That is until you start flipping through Modern Log Cabin Quilting: 25 Simple Quilts and Patchwork Projects
by Susan Beal and then it is all clear to you how quilts get modern.


Is there anything author Susan Beal can’t craft? From Beading, Buttons and Geek Crafts everything she touches is crafty gold. Susan is a Portland lady who has been profiled in books like Handmade Nation, Craft Corps and interviewed right here on Naughty Secretary Club. Anyone worth their crafty salt is familiar with her work. As if she was not an already impressive crafter now she goes and adds quilter to her resume.


True quilting aficionados are going to love the detailed history in Modern Log Cabin Quilting. For instance did you know log cabin quilts were popularized by Abe Lincoln and his log cabin childhood home? Seamsters (hipsters that sew) are going to love the quirky fabrics and fresh new takes on a classic. For newbies to sewing and quilting there are easy to follow instuctions and oodles of tricks and techniques. That T-shirt memory quilt I have always dreamed about might now actually be possible.


Quilting as a technique is not restricted to just blankets in the eyes of Susan Beal. Take your fabric scraps and make aprons, purses and pillows. In the same vein don’t forget that you are not restricted to using just the fat quarters at your local fabric store. Take a trip to your local flea market and browse through the feedsack, vintage linens and as I mentioned old T-shirts.


Always wanted to dip your toe into quilting waters? Well now is your chance. You have a week to leave me a quilting related comment. Do you have a vast collection of family quilts? Have you recently made a housewarming gift out of thrifted and quilted placemats? Does the idea of quilting intrigue you, yet seem terribly daunting. Let me know and you could win! Please only US residents. Good luck!

    We hung a thrifted log cabin quilt as a backdrop for photos at our wedding in December. $12 & the vintage prints looked exactly like the fabrics I use in most of my stuff. And a sweet keepsake forever!
    I make some simple quilted blankets for baby gifts & have sewn a few crazy quilts from scraps. I'd be curious to see if I could pull off something precise. Ha!

    I come from a seriously long line of quilters, all of them passed away long before I took an interest in it. Now that I want to try it, all I feel is confused every time I look at the fabric and patters. Some relatively simple instruction would certainly go a long way toward giving me the push I need to give it a go.

    the first quilt i ever made was for my sister. Her name is Holly and her birthday is in December so i made it with all different fabrics that have Holly on it.
    Her dog decided it would be fun to curl up on and dig in to make a nest. He killed it.
    I need something that would help me make a quilt that would be a little more doggie proof

    My husband works at an inter-city clinic. I make small scrap quilts and we hang them around the clinic. As " decorations ." Occasionally, my husband will come home and sheepishly announce that he gave the quilt away! (which is really ok!) I would love to learn to put even more of my scraps together as log cabins! Then he can give something better than my silly scrap quilts away!

    Oh, I love the cover of the book! I would say I am a self-taught quilter so I love to find books on different types of quilting that appeal to me. The modern quilts looks gorgeous and I think the designs would go well with the stacks of fabrics waiting for me to whip them into shape!

    I love the Log Cabin pattern and the thought of making them with a new twist is intriguing. I love to sew and any new ideas are always welcome!!

    Oh, my gooossssshhh. This is every super-beginner's dream book <3 Lon cabin quilts always seem so grandmotherly but these are so fresh and happy. Oooohhhh, I want to try….

    My first quilt was a log cabin, alas it is still missing a border. But I have recently come back to quilting, and have finished two scrappy quilts and have a beveled square in works. Would love to go back to log cabin'ing…this sounds like the perfect motivation!

    I love all the new quilts. I'm just a beginner quilter (actually, it's the actual quilting part that terrifies me), but I'm so inspired by the modern fabrics and ways to make old techniques new again!

    I love quilts, but I have always been too intimidated to try it. I would love to give quilting a twirl.
