log cabin baby quilt

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

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″.

    The little animals on the fabric are so sweet. Lovely gift, Anna. I love that you added a log cabin square to the back, and I really love the quilting lines. Beautiful!

    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

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

    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!

    very nice! and i love the color palette. so unique and soft. :)

  13. Kristie 02.21.2011 at 11:40 am #

    That is super cute, Anna. I love the bunnies, and that it is for a girl but not all pink. I think the back is my favorite!
    {Four kids! yikes…..prizes indeed!}

    This baby quilt is gorgeous! I am sure the new parents will be really happy with this handmade present.

  19. Kerstin 02.21.2011 at 1:13 pm #

    There’s nothing nicer than a quilt for a new baby. I’m sure the parents of the little one who gets this will appreciate it very much. Lovely quilt!

    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.

  21. Emily Elizabeth 02.21.2011 at 2:18 pm #

    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….

  22. Liz @ LivingMySweetLife 02.21.2011 at 2:39 pm #

    LOVELY! I love the design and the color scheme, What a lucky little girl this quilt is going to!

  23. Rachel 02.21.2011 at 2:40 pm #

    Love it! Cute, but not cutesy. Not pink or blue, either, which is refreshing. An excellent use of fabric and time ;)

  24. Happy Together 02.21.2011 at 4:02 pm #

    I love love love quilts like this! You did a fantastic job :)

  25. Jenny 02.21.2011 at 4:23 pm #

    I LOOOOOOOOOOOOVE those colors. Beautiful.

  26. ayumills 02.21.2011 at 4:52 pm #

    That is a very cute quilt, Anna! I love how you used typography fabric in a lot of places!

  27. Alysa 02.21.2011 at 5:14 pm #

    Beautiful! I love that you went for out-of-the-box colors and organic lines.

    Beautiful Anna. I love the back too, with the organic patchwork and quilting. I might just give it a go myself soon. :)

    Ooh – beautiful, beautiful, beautiful, Anna!

    Great baby quilt. I love the colors and the design is amazing.

    I would love to be capable of doing this. Anyone who can quilt has a very special talent. This is adorable. I love browns and pinks for a baby girl. Congrats!

    Gorgeous job Anna! Love it. I’m gonna have to try me a log cabin one of these days!

    I think I’m safe in assuming this is headed up north to Alaska ;) It is GORGEOUS!!!!! The color palate is wonderful, as are the organic lines and puckers. I love it Anna. LOVE it! It’s a definite heirloom for sure.

  36. Vanessa 02.22.2011 at 10:46 pm #

    very sweet! i just finally finished my first quilt and can see how it can become additive! look forward to seeing more of your quilts :)

  37. mo 02.23.2011 at 1:58 pm #

    Oooh, I’m inspired. Will have to give the log cabin a try. I like negative space in your quilt too. Very cool looking.

  38. Sarah Pead 02.23.2011 at 6:29 pm #

    Love how you pieced this quilt together! It’s quite lovely!

  39. meags&me 02.25.2011 at 2:04 am #

  40. Mary 02.25.2011 at 11:33 am #

    Wow, this quilt came out so great! I’m usually attracted to bright colors, but I’m loving the neutral palette on this quilt. So sweet for a baby!

  41. Jennifer 02.25.2011 at 11:16 pm #
