1930s Reproduction Prints Log Cabin Baby Quilt Finish

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.

img_4675This 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.

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!

Here’s some progress shots from my Instagram feed. Follow me @erinmakeitsew if you’re not already!:

  1. Hi I found your blog from Crazymomquilts and just started reading. I am so sorry to read about your late husband. You have such a beautiful son who is similar in age to my second son. I cannot imagine what you go through every day but I just wanted to write to say that I wish you and your baby the very, very best x

  2. I also found you through Crazy Mom quilts and wanted to wish you well. I can’t imagine losing my spouse so young. Praying that quilting will give you some peace.
