These aren’t traditional log cabin blocks. The centers are large, and there are only two “logs” on each side. They are only 7.5 inches square, and there are fifty-four of them. The quilt came out 42″ by 63″, but that was before it was washed. I didn’t piece these to a foundation, just started adding to the center squares. That made it much easier to chain piece them.
The colors are inspired by both Spring, and the backing fabric.
I quilted this with Sulky white and Superior Living Colors pink thread. The bottom thread is Bottom Line. The batting is Warm and Plush.
This is going to Margaret’s Hope Chest for a program called A Mother’s Hope.

Gorgeous quilt Valerie! That backing fabric is beautiful, and I’m not surprised it inspired you to use the colors from it. It’s so much easier to make the blocks when the center is larger, isn’t it? I love larger blocks.
