Shimmer Braid Quilt – Curved Log Cabin

Curved log cabins (made with recycled clothes) - francenadeau.com

I was finally able to finish my twenty curved log cabins. Yes, twenty. I worked with scraps and recycled fabric, which means I could not follow the tutorial written for fat quarters. That would have been so much easier! But they are done. I am glad. I like them. I have prepared a picture explaining the different fabrics I have used:

Those curved log cabins are the second step in making the Shimmer Braid quilt, designed by Deana of Dreamworthy Quilts. You can see just below how my curved log cabins look next to the log cabins I have previously made:

  1. Such lovely blocks… I really like your colour combo in the top pic! Was it tricky combining the different fabrics? Looking forward to seeing them all together! Linda

    • Thank you, Linda, for your compliment! I cannot say that it was easy to combine the fabrics. I have to accept the fact that the sewing lines are not always as I wished them to be, nor as straight as I would like. I sacrificed perfection for texture. 😉 I’m glad that you like them.

    • Thank you for your compliments, Andrea! Coming from a talented quilter… 🙂 I just went to your place for the first time and saw gorgeous pieces there!

  2. Beautiful blocks! I love your choices of fabrics and colors France. The aqua silk in the center balances the reds/pinks and plaids perfectly. It is all the more amazing when we realize you haven’t gone out and bought fat quarters.

    • Thank you, dear Lara! I was not 100% sure about that pale green/aqua silk centre. I find it clashes a little against the red and pink. But after reading your words, I see how the centre balances the rest. Before, I just saw the contrast. So, thank you for taking the time to write to me! 🙂
