log cabin baby quilt

2.21.2011

I was itching to make another quilt.  One without much of a plan. 

{front}

I love log cabins, I think I could make a million more with all my scraps.


Anyway, I had my little stash of these super cute Sevenberry fabrics (purchased from a local shop that has since gone out of business, wah!) I'd been saving for too long.  They're just so perfect, calling out for a special baby quilt.


Luckily, our good friends had their 4th baby recently (a girl).  For me, that deserves a special prize in and of itself.  Don't you think?


This isn't my usual color palette, not that I know if I really have one, but it's different from a lot of other things I've made.  {Now I'm looking at my pictures and see where the colors came from - my backyard, tan and white and brown - wintery.} So I got a few fat quarters from my local shop, Basic Grey's Basics by Moda and a few others.

With the quilting I went for some organic lines and I love the texture it creates.


There's another component to this gift I just finished up, but that'll have to wait for another post.

Quilt measures 36" by 40".

  7. I love it! I share your love for log cabin squares and love to see them used outside of the normal log cabin on log cabin

  8. Beautiful! And I love that the colours could be for either sex - without being the predictable yellow or green.

  9. Oh. so pretty! And refreshingly not pink (which I'm sure she'll appreciate if she has other girls). I really like the text fabric!

  17. Lovely quilt! I love the colors and the log cabin. Although I've done quite a few log cabins, I haven't done one in a while and it's a great pattern to come back to. I may have to revisit it, soon.

  18. I love the color palette you chose! And the overall design of the quilt is just lovely. Can you believe that I've never made even a log cabin block? I think I have to change that....
