Modern Log Cabins - A Friday Finish

I cannot tell you how excited I am about my latest finish.  I am a huge fan of Jacquie Gering's work - I just love the simple, clean and modern style of her designs.  I love her colour choices and I especially love her passion for what she does.  She inspires me.

When I decided to make myself a wall hanging for the bedroom a few weeks ago, I knew it needed to be something similar to Jacquie's work here.  That picture had been on my Pinterest board for a long time and it was perfect for the wall closest to my side of the bed.

Modern log cabins are so much fun to make - so liberating.  I chose Kona Coal, White, Bahama Blue and Citrus.  I love the little pops of yellow with the grey, white and blue.

To quilt it, I used my walking foot and some Aurifil 50 wt in Dove to quilt a square spiral, starting in the centre of the quilt and working my way out.  This made for lots and lots of turning, but it was so much worth the effort.  I just love the look of the quilting on this wall hanging.

The finished size is 36" square.  I am beyond proud of this and I smile every time I walk into my bedroom and see it hanging there!  

I will be linking up at Amanda Jean's for Finish It Up Friday and at Crazy Dutch Bird Quilts for TGIFF.

So tell me - who inspires you when you quilt?
