From the pattern cover -
Have a big stash clear out for this Oriental fabric Log Cabin sampler! The seven different 8in Log Cabin blocks use 1in and 1½in strips, with a few larger squares, so you can use up long and short strips alike. A mixture of large scale Oriental prints with smaller prints and tone-on-tones make it a scrap quilt with a difference. It is assembled using the quilt-as-you-go method, so you can use up scraps of wadding, and make it reversible too!
Log Cabin quilts are popular with Japanese quilters, who often explore the variations on the basic block to produce unusual effects. The prints used in this version are similar to the kimono scraps favoured by many quilters, so you can get the look without sacrificing vintage kimono. The ad hoc mixture of colours, patterns and scales are another feature of Japanese quilts which add to their charm. The sampler quilt would work well with other fabric types, such as taupe or batik, with more subdued indigo blues, rust and cream, in black and white or whatever you fancy.
