Another Log Cabin Design

Somewhere around Easter each year, I put this wall hanging up. The colors are definitely those of spring and even though our spring weather here near the Canadian border won't start for at least another month, we're all so eager for the first spring flowers to add color to our drab landscape.

I cut so many 1-1/2" strips of fabric when I was making this wall hanging that I had enough left over to make a baby quilt! This always happens when I work without following a pattern. You'd think I'd learn . . . but I don't.

Love your pastel log-cabin quilts! Definetely looks springy! It is supposed to be 80 here today...doubt that it will last, but I think it is time to play in my flower beds!

Hi, Sharon - Thank you! Our unusually early spring here this year is making us all antsy to get out and dig in the dirt, too. But we have to remain cautious because Mother Nature could easily give us a good hard frost or two yet . . . or possibly even snow!

I was looking at this one, thinking I wasn't so sure about that large light colored border and then I realized that was the wall, ha ha!!

It's very pretty - now where's the baby quilt you made out of the scraps??

Mama Pea Quilts said...

Hi, Jen - HA! I see what you mean about that light border!!

Oh gosh, the baby quilt is long gone and because of my brain cells dying off rapidly lately, I can't even remember for sure which baby it went to. (I think a little girl babe in San Francisco but don't hold me to it.)
