This is a log cabin quilt. Yes, I went back to familiar territory and did a traditional, symmetrical quilt this time around 🙂  Below is a close up of the fabric that inspired the name I chose – I think it’s perfect for a boy’s quilt!

The orange fabrics, with the exception of the edge binding, were all donations, while the namesake was leftover from a quilt I made 12 years ago for my nephew.

I donated this quilt visa vie the Hands2Help Charity Quilt Challenge 2015. I chose to donate it to Nita who blogs at Because You Matter since her goals and focus are similar to mine: to make and give a quilt to a person who is having a hard time and would be comforted by a handmade quilt to snuggle up in, particularly children in foster care.

This quilt was inspired by Doris Brunnette’s (madebyabrunnette.com) Diamond Dust quilt which won 1st place at the Modern Quilt Guild’s QuiltCon 2015.

As someone who loves symmetry – and started quilting long before quilts with a modern aesthetic began gaining momentum in the early 2000’s – doing an asymmetrical quilt is quite a step outside of the proverbial box for me! While Doris’ design uses more solid color and negative space, I don’t have many “pieces of the past” fabrics that are solid colors. The white/black fabric was from Granny, while the flamingo fabric was a donation fabric.
