oversized log cabin baby quilt


Lately, I've been playing around with the log cabin block, experimenting with scale, color placement, and improvisational piecing. This quilt is the first result of my efforts: an oversized log cabin baby quilt. I selected a simple color palette of navy, cream, and peach for the quilt, using American-made solids for the top.


Wanting to maintain the quilt's simplicity, I quilted it with a grid, using cream thread.


The back, a super soft Nani Iro double gauze, is my favorite part. It's so soft and squishy! For the binding, I used Bonnie Christine fabric left over from my circles and triangles wall quilt.


This quilt will be available at The Maker's Waypost, a new shop in Whitinsville, MA, which opens Saturday, November 28. The shop will be carrying a number of my one-of-a-kind quilts and patchwork pillows, so be sure to stop by if you're in the neighborhood!

  1. This is lovely Caitlin, it's so graphic and elegant. I actually work in Sutton so I'll probably be stopping by Maker's Waypoint all too often once they open up! I'll be sure to tell this quilt you said hi when I see it :)
