Improv Log Cabin by Tara Faughnan, 2014

The inspiration for this quilt came as I was doing the dreaded job of organizing my scraps. I laid them all out on an old drying rack and was struck by both the range and the subtle variation happening within each color. I wanted to capture the beauty of all those colors, and also wanted to get thrifty and use ALL of the scraps, so naturally a log cabin layout came to mind. I used the strips as they were-thin and wide, long and short, and just sewed them together however they fit into the block. Oakland, California, United States 55" x 55"
