Log Cabin With Attitude!

Another finish for January - lots of activity this weekend just gone and a little sewing to boot!

I had a lot of fun making this quilt and then it seemed to hover around forever - originally it was intended for my grandson, Tyler, who is nearly 19 now - too girly 'they' thought!

There are so many great fabrics - all bits and pieces from my stash, ranging from repros to very modern Kaffe stripes! I'm sure it will find a nice home and keep some body warm, LOL!

Happy day!

Very pretty - and what a lovely Saturday you've had.

Great quilt! I guess I could see how "they" would think it was girly, but I don't think so. I love it!

What a great quilt! I don't find it "girly" at all. The light sashing really plays nicely with all those colorful blocks. It looks like it was a lot of fun to make.

Susan In Texas said...

Too "girly"! Really? With that black border? Please, does a single pink bit of fabric out of dozens of bits REALLY make it girly? I don't think so!

Wendy said...

It's a great looking quilt, looks like it was a fun one.

Barb said...

Boys can be funny, I have a few that won't even have small flower prints on theirs....pooey....there goes most of my fabric. Love the quilt!

Lindi said...

Love it. Not girly at all. Very jazzy and modern art. :)

Nedra said...

Congrats on the finish. Log Cabins are timeless, so maybe in a few years he will be honored to have the quilt.

Vivian said...

A totally modern quilt. I'm guessing any guy or girl would love it. I don't think I've seen a log cabin quite like this before. I love it.

Lurline that quilt is stunning, well done. I particularly like the huge visual impact that the black and white give to the other colours, really making them pop.

I disagree about the "girlie" part but I'm not a teenage boy. Someone will be thrilled with it.

Pauline said...

Oh My Goodness This is Super Fantastic and Neat and Special! You've given me the first smile of the day and I'm not kidding.

Happiness and Joy to you my friend, *karendianne.

I LOVE the quilt! I especially love the sashing and little corner blocks, plus the black border. And didn't I see backing that looked like golf balls and tees on your previous post? That's not girly. :) I just started a quilt for my 24 yr old son...picked browns and blues...and I hope he thinks it's okay as it will be a surprise gift.

Em said...

Love the wonky and yet the white makes it seem so crisp! Beautiful!!!

Talin's Corner said...

I love it, scrappy quilts are so much fun to make and look at. They are especially nice when you can look at them and see bits and pieces of other quilts you have made in the past.

Teresa said...

Very nice! The sashing and cornerstones give it such a smart look! Whoever gets it will be VERY lucky!

In stitches,
Teresa :o)

Lurline I do like that.....the black really sets it off...

MrsQuilts said...

Love the look of some of those quirky fabrics!

Maggey and Jim said...

Recently I have heard so much about adding white to your quilt and I must say this really paid off. It is quite stunning, I really like how it came together and I am glad you are pleased too. We so many time convey our feelings in to a piece and this one shows your artistic expression..
Hugs,
Maggey
