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

Natalia Bonner and Nancy Zieman on the Set of the Sewing With Nancy TV Show for Cabin Fever QuiltsIn 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.
