Log Cabin Love

I have decided to make quilts for my friend's 3 daughters. I love children's quilts the best and it has been so much fun figuring out what patterns I am going to use.  One of them I decided on was a Log Cabin. I have had a baby log cabin pattern for a long time and I have always wanted to make it. I made a Log Cabin years ago but because the strips were bigger I had less layouts to choose from. This log cabin uses 1 1/2 inch strips so I am excited about all the possibilities.

I got a great package in the mail yesterday.  I had entered a giveaway on RennaLily's blog and won a set of Barb Sackel fat quarters.

I also won this cute cross-stitch pattern in August from Andrea. My daughter has claimed it as something I need to make for her.

I am off to enjoy the last long weekend before school starts here with hopefully some quilting mixed in. Have a great weekend!

I don't normally like log cabins...but those colors and the small scale may make me a convert. I can't wait to see what lay-out you use.

Sometimes, going back to the simple Log so fun to do. Love your colors of fabrics too. Have fun.
