Cabin Fever Quilts as seen on the TV Show Sewing With Nancy on PBS with Nancy Zieman and Guest Natalia Bonner.



You might think that Log Cabin quilt blocks are very predictable—red center block with dark fabric strips added to one side, and light strips added to the other. Not necessarily! This week we welcome back Natalia Bonner, author and modern quilt designer, who takes an unconventional approach to traditional Log Cabin block design. Tune in and watch part two of this new Sewing With Nancy series titled, Cabin Fever Quilts.

In Cabin Fever Quilts part two, we’ll start by creating Natalia’s Dappled Quilt. Natalia’s intricate design of intersecting squares starts with a very simple Log Cabin Quarter-log block on point. Watch as we show you the tricks of modern quilting and soon, you too, will have Cabin Fever.

Next Natalia shows how to make the Cabin Keys block similar to the Dappled quilt block (above). With her slight strip variations, you’ll have an entirely different quilt!

Next up in Cabin Fever Quilts part two, we’ll break down Natalia’s Nonchalant Quilt—an easy one-block quilt made in just two colors plus white.

Once you’ve given yourself permission to change the traditional, there’s no stopping the creative options.  In this quilt, Peaches and Cream, Natalia starts with the Quarter-log block and adds Snowball block corners. Intrigued? Watch Cabin Fever Quilts part two.
