Curated Quilts Feature: Giant Jelly Roll Log Cabin Quilt

Monday, January 29, 2018

Today I wanted to share that one of my quilts was featured in a new publication, Curated Quilts. It's a quarterly journal put out by Amy Ellis and Christine Ricks. Each issue is packed with content centered around an overarching theme.

The second issue was just released and the theme is Log Cabin. There is loads of inspiration in the gallery of featured quilts, the mini quilt challenge, in depth articles. There's even an article about working with thrifted materials (right up my alley!).

You'll find my Giant Jelly Roll Log Cabin Quilt that I made last year in the gallery section of this issue. Read more about that quilt here.

I have long been drawn to the log cabins and this issue has inspired me to pull out a very old work in progress. I started it in August 2011 (yikes). The pieces were stuffed in a couple ziploc bags all those years, so I spent some time yesterday ironing all the strips so that I can start working on it again.

I thought I'd also take the time to share a few of my favorite log cabin projects that I've made. Not sure I'll ever tire of this block!

  1. Congrats on being featured, Jeni! I love that giant log cabin block, and how modern your rectangular log cabin quilt looks, too. And I’m glad you let your UFO from 2011 out of the bag — I’ll bet that ironing those strips after so many years felt like a reunion with old friends. :-)

  2. I was at a friend's house. She subscribes to that publication. I ordered that issue! I love the log cabin block, and I love your quilt, too! Congratulations on being featured, Jeni!

  3. Oh Jeni, congratulations for being in this big book.
    I love the quilt, is is just beautiful.
    All ofyour other projects are lovely too and so inspiring. Yes get back to that older project, it looks very "indie" now

  4. Congratulations on being featured! I love the idea of using a jelly roll to make a giant log cabin block quilt! Your quilt is quite stunning! I am going to pursue that issue of Curated Quilts! Nadine W. N. California
