Its Fall-Y'All Scrappy Rag Quilt Tutorial. Modified Log Cabin Quilt

I don't know about you, but I get a little sad when the leaves on the trees start to change color, when the stores start to bring out their fall decor (or even Christmas), and when the kids go back to school...

I am a summer fanatic all...the...way. I love summer. I hate being cold.

But this quilt almost makes me like fall and winter. Almost.

Fall colors. Scrappy style. 

A couple months ago I had every intention of writing a little tutorial on how I did this rag quilt, but then my phone crashed and I lost every single picture that hadn't synced with my Ipad.

So, you will just get the written version.  Sorry!  No pictures.

I took 2.5 inch pieces of all different lengths and sewed them into a square similar to how you would do a long cabin.

I made 2 really large blocks.  They measured about 44 inches square.  
Now take one of those blocks and fold it into a triangle, taking the bottom right hand point and lining it up with the top left hand point.  Then cut that into 5 inch strips.

You will need to piece some of those 5 inch strips together to get about 44 inches in width.  You can see in the picture above in the 3rd row down there is the brown polka dot fabric and how there is a straight line instead of the blocks building on each other.  That one was pieced.

Cut all your strips into 44 inches wide (or the width that you would like for the quilt)

Cut out the same number of 5 inch strips from your flannel backing fabric.

Now layer your pieced pieces for your top with the flannel on the back.  Take 2 of your layer pieces and with the flannel pieces touching and your top quilt pieces on the top and bottom facing outwards, sew down the long side with a 1/2 inch seam allowance.

Repeat with the remaining pieces.

Clip the seam allowance with short blade scissors (Here is a great blog post if you would like more info on which scissors are the best)

Wash and dry your quilt.  Make sure to check your lint catcher in your dryer a couple times while it is drying.

Enjoy your  new rag quilt!

Just beautiful! I'm a summer gal too but I have a few cozy blankets that I just love and that is one of my favorite parts of winter!

I love the cooler weather, but then it gets REALLY hot here.

What a beautiful quilt. I absolutely hate the cold and have blankets all over the house so I'll always have one nearby. I have very little quilting skills, but can eek out a passable blanket if you don't look too close. I think I may give your quilt a try this winter as I'm hibernating indoors. Thanks for sharing!
