log cabin.

i am about to start a new project.. a log cabin quilt for my shop. even though i have like four or five projects already started, the motivation has hit, and i'm in the mood. (in my defense, some of the projects i've already started are waiting for their backing fabrics to arrive in the mail...) here are a couple of inspiration pics of log cabins in the style i hope to accomplish (using mostly scraps!)--- wish me luck! i'll post pics as i get some progress made ;)

i also have a custom quilt to work on starting this week, christine in california sent me a great box of her baby's outgrown onesies and a couple of blankies, to be made into a quilt for the nursery! i'm pairing those fabrics with some awesome modern designer fabrics, and am really excited to get started! i've cut the squares out of the onesies, and am excited to see the other fabrics paired with all of the cute soft fabrics! i'll be sure to get some pics of that as well :)

how funny- i am in the middle of my first log cabin, and this quilt is my inspiration too! i have a few pic's on my blog of my progress so far- i am really happy- it is very theraputic- all the repetition : )

I would love to see photos of your baby quilt- i have been thinking about doing this with my son's outgrown clothes, but was unsure of sewing with this type of fabric...i am new to sewing and didnt know how some of the stretchier fabrics would go with cotton...would love to know what you think of it, and the end result :o )
i love seeing what you come up with.

Your new apartment looks beautiful, well done ; )
