baby log cabin quilt
I'm not normally one to hang quilts on the wall, but after finishing this baby log cabin quilt a few weeks ago, I discovered that it fit perfectly in my daughter's room. I couldn't resist.
My husband hung up the pottery barn inspired shelf that I made years ago beneath it, which is a lovely place to have Milly and Melvin sit. (Thankfully, I finally got those two clothed!)
here's a close up of one of the quilt blocks....
(the white on white polka dot came from the very generous Marcia...I love that fabric.)
and all together it creates a cozy little reading nook for my daughter. After nearly a year in this house, I am finally decorating. Ya-hoo!
There is a tutorial here for the log cabin blocks.
Check out the beautiful one that Jane made using the same pattern.

What a cute log cabin quilt-like the way it is scrappy yet with all the same fabrics throughout the quilt!!
That's beautiful! I always love seeing your quilts. How did you hang it?
I just used pins from my pin cushion and pushed them into the wall. I think I used about 6 of them along the top.
So pretty! I think it looks wonderful on the wall.
What a cozy fee that room has to it now. Your daughter will love that for many years now. Soooo cute!
Super cute - as usual! Glad you are feathering your nest :)
Log Cabins are my favorite and this one is so darling!
Just beautiful. I've always thought of log cabins and kind of "ho-hum" ~ now I just may have to make one myself!
adorable! I love pink and green together. It's the best little girl colour combo.
Wonderful work as always!

I am always amazed everytime I come to visit you. Me and my Mom actually got to spend the day together this past Sunday, and we worked on our Star Quilt tgether. I blogged about it. We had so much fun thanks to you and all of your help.
What a gorgeous reading nook! I always like coming to your blog to see what you've been up to.
The dish towels and the zipper pouch are on my list to make.
Another beautiful quilt - I love the colours, and in fact, it would look beautiful in my darling daughter's room too!
You are very inspirational, and I love looking at your blog and seeing what beautiful projects you have made!
It's just beautiful in your daughters room - perfect!
Most beautiful colors that I love.
What a beautiful quilt. Love the colours and design. You have been very busy. I'm admiring all your tutorials and the little dress is gorgeous.
Hi I was surfing around sewing bloggs and found yours because I saw your name, and I also love to quilt. I have a few of my quilts on my blogg. I just love to make things of fabrics. Your baby quilt is very nice and girl. I will come back and see more what you are doing.
I just love this quilt. Thanks for all you do sharing your wonderful creations & ideas with us.
(As always) the quilt is gorgeous! What a wonderful little nook!
And it's nice to hear that my lack of decorating since moving into our house in July is normal! :o)
I think I love your posts with your kids the most. It's really wonderful to see how your craft intersects with their daily lives. What a beautiful piece - perfect for hanging.
I finished the top & did a test attempt(s) at free motion quilting. Blech I am baaaaaaaaaaaad at it!!! Perhaps I will have to stitch in that old ditch after all.
Oh my goodness! That is just SOO sweet!! Something like that would retail for a few hundred dollars and you did it Fabulously for oh so less!!! Thanks for the great pics of everything you did. :>
Hello there :) That's one good looking quilt you got there, a perfect wall decoration.
