Baby Logs Quilt in a New Home
I like to revisit vintage patterns with today's fabrics. This is an off-center Log Cabin made with a 2015 collection from Windham. I named it Sweet Baby Logs. I was working with fat quarters and had to get creative with my borders!

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. I have since put binding on it.
I got creative with the border (as I did with the one above). I didn't want to use a single fabric. And, again, I was working with FAT QUARTERS, so I cut strips from those and used a positive/negative arrangement.

Take a look at this vintage 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?
