Paper Pieced Log Cabin Quilt

It had been a while since I'd done any paper piecing, so it was really enjoyable to try out the log cabin templates from Felicia's World. They come in various sizes and make log cabins look amazing and perfect. Thanks Felicia's World for letting me try these out!

Each packet comes with 48 preprinted ready to sew templates. Just tear of a sheet and sew!

I made 36 log cabins to go in my quilt, "Midnight Storm", using Riley Blake Designs Confetti Cottons in black, white, gray and purple. I use a lot of solids in my quilts and love the look they create.

Midnight Storm
50" x 50"


The directions were clear and the log cabins were easy to paper piece. 


The blocks trimmed up perfectly and fit together nicely.


Once the blocks were put together, removing the papers off the back didn't take long at all.


It looked great on my new-to-me long arm machine!


Check out Felicia's World for some great patterns and templates!

Such a fun and somewhat mysterious quilt. Love the black background.

What that just regular printer paper? Or did you use something special that would remove more easily?

This is a very striking quilt! I hate to paper piece log cabins - traditional is the way for me.

I love the looks of this quilt. It looks like it would glow in the dark. The contrast of colors really pop. I see a variety of designs. Every time I blink a new design pops out at me. What a fun quilt to “watch”! It seems the blocks could all be sewn on the straight grain, so keeping the papers on to the end wouldn’t be necessary. I do love the precision of paper piecing. Love this quilt!

Wow, another hit, Carol! The colors and your arrangement of blocks along with the border make those blocks pop! I love it! The precision of paper-piecing is a wonderful help. Looks like the way to go with log cabins too.

That's beautiful, Carol! Love the colors and love the log cabin blocks! Glad you had fun with paper piecing. It's not my favorite technique but I have used it occasionally!

That and pineapple are the only paper pieced blocks I've done more than one. I used to pay my young son 10 cents a block to tear the papers off for me. He was very careful, and very happy. =) That wasn't this kind of paper, though, more like a very thin velum.
