pastel log cabin baby girl quilt

Catching up on all things quilty - I realized that I haven't kept up with my most recent quilt finishes. This one dates back to January 2015...

I made this one for a sweet lady and her sweet husband and their soon-to-be-born sweet baby girl, Calla. I don't think I've made something so overtly pastel and cute and girly, but that's the direction I went for this one. Which is strange, because this sweet lady isn't what I'd call a pastel sort of gal (*not that there's anything wrong with that. I know very few "pastel gals").  She's rock n roll and can play drums like a boss and wears a leather jacket. But for some reason, these fabrics were calling to me. 
I had the art gallery border print (as seen in the center square) for awhile (it's from the 'littlest' collection, which is ADORABLE).  I used this super simple martha stewart pattern . I mainly just read the following statement and ignored everything else: (To make a 40-inch square quilt, start with a 10 1/2-inch center square and add 5 1/2-inch-wide strips.) 
Here's the back! Here you can really see the straight diagonal quilting lines. 
I had the pleasure of giving the couple the quilt at the baby shower...and sweet little Calla was born a few weeks later. Congrats to the family!! 

*sorry for the dark and dreary indoor photos. Winter - hmph!!


  1. I adore this one! (Those flower prints have stolen my heart.) Also, I love the design of your new site. It's so warm and cosy...much like snuggling up on the sofa with a beloved quilt.
