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.
I wasn’t able to see the detail, but it is a striking quilt.. Whoever gets it will be very happy.
Thanks Carol! I still have some scraps of the fabric, and will try to add a pic in the next few days that shows better detail. But to end your suspense, it has bugs on it – spiders, beetles, and some other creepy crawlers 🙂
When I originally purchased and used this fabric in my nephew’s quilt, he was about 6-years old and it’s perfect for a little boy’s quilt.
Such a cool quilt, and sure to make some little boy very happy! Thanks for participating in the Challenge this year!!
Thank you! I am thrilled to be part of this year’s challenge and look forward to next year’s!
I love the quilt and the organization it is going to.
Thanks! I think it is sort of cool to have my quilts from SoCal going to BC Canada — multi-national quilts!
