Log Cabin Baby Quilt

    Newer Older

    I made this quilt for some friends of mine who just had their first baby, a daughter. They love bright, bold things and are a little bit quirky, so I thought this quilt would be appropriate.

    It *is* square, but of course it was windy, so this is the best shot I could get.

    I made wonky log cabin blocks of different shapes and sizes, and then sashed each in Snow Kona Cotton. I cut the final blocks down to 10.5" each and sewed them together, then bound with a pieced binding made up of scraps from the log cabin blocks.

    Twenty-eighth Street, just_colleen, and 72 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      This is so great! I love the gray mixed in with all the brights! I'm an admin for a group called Fresh Modern Quilts, and we'd love to have this added to the group!

      Thank you all! The parents loved it, but I'll have to wait a couple more years for good feedback from the recipient :)

      Hi! I'm running a scrappy block swap, and I am looking for ideas to post of ways we can use our blocks. I would love to post this photo on my blog with a photo credit to you and a link to this page. What do you think?
