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!}

    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 😉

  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. :)

  30. Erin W. 02.22.2011 at 7:37 am #

    Ooh – beautiful, beautiful, beautiful, Anna!

    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!

    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.

  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!

    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!
