Friday Finish: Log Cabin Graduation Quilt
We are back from dropping off my daughter (and her quilt) at college so I guess that means we are officially empty nesters now. That reality hasn't set in yet though I am sure it will soon.
My daughter seems happy with her new quilt, new dorm room, and new roommates! I hope her happiness continues when classes begin next week.
Ally's quilt is XL twin size as most college dorms provide that size bed. Of course, halfway through the quilt making process we learned her bed is a standard twin. Better the quilt is larger than smaller, I guess. Pictured above is her quilt on a standard twin bed in our house.
This inspiration for my daughter's quilt came from this quilt on Instagram found while searching #logcabinquilts. I had not seen a log cabin quilt in this style before. I used scrappy low volumes for the light strips and scrappy greens (school color) for the darks. A turquoise center was used for the centers as it is my favorite color.
- Finished quilt size: 64"x96"
- Log cabin blocks; 2.5" center, 1.5" strips finish at 8"
- Scrappy fabrics for the top; Kaffe wideback fabric for the back; Carolyn Friedlander for the binding
- Quilted on my longarm using Aurifil #2600
Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts. Have a great weekend!
