Modern Log Cabin Quilting - Drawstring Bag

It's time for Modern Log Cabin Quilting project number 5 - an adorable drawstring bag!

Log Cabin Drawstring Bag

Gail opted to use the many of the same fabrics for this project that Dolin used for the adorable pin cushion -- Sew Happy by Monaluna from Robert Kaufman, combined with the scissor fabric from Momo's Wonderland by Moda. 

This project is made of a single log cabin block, folded in half and lined. Make a casing, and, voila!, you have a drawstring bag!

Gail, who is not herself a quilter, says this project is a great intro to the world of quilting. "The log cabin pattern is straight forward and can be made in an evening. Cute fabrics become a cute bag. The drawstring camouflages a not-so-perfect log cabin square."

Susan Beal, the author of Modern Log Cabin Quilting, will be joining us at Bobbin's Nest Studio for a book signing and quilting event on Thursday, May 19 from 5-8pm. We'll have free log cabin kits for attendees (while supplies last!) and sewing machines set up for you to try your hand at making a log cabin block. Susan is excited to meet everyone and share her love of log cabin quilting, so plan to stop by for a few refreshments and to make your own block! Full details in our previous blog post.
