I’ve got another quilt finish under my belt! Another baby quilt, I’m swimming in babies over here but I don’t mind. They’re fast and easy quilts to make, and everyone loves getting them.
This time I bought a log cabin quilt kit with 1930s reproduction fabrics from Maywood Studios. It was really great because it was mostly pre-cut, too. All I had to do was assemble! I haven’t quilted much since my husband died and having an easy way to get back into quilting really helped. The finished size was a little small for my liking, so I added a border and cornerstone pieces with fabric from my stash. I’m pretty pleased with how well they match the kit fabric.
The quilt itself measures 41″x33″ and I quilted an allover stipple with white thread on top and pastel variegated on the back. For the back of the quilt I used various pieces from my stash; the quilt is for a little girl so I wanted to add some more pink to the mix. And I was happy to thin out my stash a little!
