New Quilt Pattern: Ripples – a Modern Log Cabin Quilt Pattern with Optional Appliqué

Hi friends!

Today I wanted to share another modern Log Cabin quilt pattern with you. The Log Cabin is a super traditional quilt block but there are so many variations!

And just because the basic block starts as a traditional block, doesn’t mean it can’t feel modern.

The quilt is just a big, off center log cabin block.

Then I added the cool appliqué on top.

Of course, you can always skip the appliqué. 

This would be such a great quilt to showcase some really awesome large print fabrics. I found these in my stash. Hmmm….

Look at the appliqué shapes – don’t they look like the ripples you would see in the water if you tossed a nice rock?

Did you ever skip rocks in the water as a kid? The hardest part was finding just the right flat stone to use to skip.

  1. The Ripples quilt is just gorgeous! I am a newer quilter, and just now learning applique. This quilt has my interest peaked and I may just have to give it a try in the future.
