My Baby Logs Have the Blues

You may remember my Sweet Baby Logs from a few years ago made with the Stella Collection from Windham Fabrics. Here she is:

Sweet Baby Logs. 10" blocks; 44" x 44" quilt
I remade it in some Kaffe Fassett fabrics using blues and white, with hints of green and lavender. I added wider border strips to this one. It was quilted by Lee Taylor of White Stone, VA. She is the owner of the Sew Lovelee Quilt shop.

My Baby Logs Have the Blues
This is an Off-Center Log Cabin using thick and thin strips. Am I a genius? Hardly. Take a look at this quilt from the 1920s and tell me "what's old is new again!" All I did was tweak the size of the logs so it really makes your eyes swing back and forth, right?

I made this in grays:

And just recently in black and white. My plan for this is to use a thin red inner border and then a black and white outer border.

The pattern is available on my Craftsy site. Just click the links above to get more info. I'm sure you'll agree that the Log Cabin block is a real favorite - whether old or new. I've made many, many more in my 25 years of quilting. How about you?

  2. Hi Debby,
    Oooh, I can just see that thin red border on the black and white version!! It will look so sharp and really make it pop. I love all of these! ~smile~ Roseanne
