Modern Log Cabin from a Layer Cake! Fast Pattern called Retro Tiles from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

You may think we forgot how to count. But today’s video is not a mistake … we are bringing you a 13th Make of Christmas!

We originally planned to remake Retro Tiles, my modern log cabin quilt using a layer cake with Polar Magic by Lemoni for FIGO. But when it was time to start filming, we still didn’t have the white fabric we ordered a month previously for the background.

But white 10-inch square packs AND white yardage arrived after I started shooting, so we decided to squeeze one bonus video in for you.

In this video we cover how to sew a log cabin, but I also show you how I organize my fabric to make sure every block is scrappy with no repeats without even having to think about it when you are sewing. I really hope you enjoy this extra tip and use it to create a fabulously scrappy quilt this holiday season.

I used 10-inch square packs for the print AND the background and it made the cutting go so fast. I was sewing within an hour-and-a-half of starting this project and there are a lot of pieces in a log cabin, so that’s pretty good.

Here’s what you’ll need to make the lap sized version of this quilt. You can click on the links below to grab everything your need. Supplies are limited, so don’t wait if you need this quilt in your life.
