My modern Log Cabin quilt...

Log Cabin is about as traditional as you can get! But I loved this modern version, found in Modern Designs for Classic Quilts.  I've been on a mission to use my stash and combine fabrics from many different lines, collected over the years.


Blue and green is a favorite color combination and I had lots to choose from! I like how they look combined with the gray and white.




The backing came from the stash also! I decided to simply sew strips around a center rectangle Log Cabin style.


A solid binding and quilting that alternated between wavy lines in the gray and white...


and loopy loops in the colored areas...


And now a week or two blogging break for me and some quality family time. It doesn't mean I won't be sewing! Just need to hand appliqué the remaining circles on these blocks and the sashing fabric is ordered!


Also taking some time to appreciate this time of year! Enjoy!

  5. Ooh! I love this quilt. I also love blue and green, and lately I've been collecting grays with no specific purpose in mind. This gives me some food for thought.

  14. Log cabins are a favorite of mine and I've made quite a few. I love your modern twist with the use of such fresh colors. Never thought of incorporating greys with whites, such a great idea! Food for thought. ..

  15. Thank you so much for this blog post. I am not usually a copier, but the little green/grey/white baby log cabin quilt was exactly what I needed for a friend's nursery. I have made my version a bit more green and less blue than yours and will pin a photo of it to my Pinterest page (when I have taken a picture, that is) with acknowledgements to you. Thank you again.
