Mish-mashed Log Cabins

I love this colorful quilt from my client, Joy. I'm not sure what the name of the pattern is, but it reminds me of log cabin blocks - except they've been slashed on the diagonal, matched up with a different block, and sewn back together. A nod to tradition, but with that funky edge that I love in much of Joy's work.

I applied an edge-to-edge treatment of overlapping swirls. I love the way these swirls appear to stack up on each other. I also was happy to help Joy with binding. She gave me yardage (uncut) fabric, and I turned her top into a completely finished quilt. I used a tool that I acquired this summer and have been having a ball making quick work of great bindings!
