Several weeks ago (meaning this quilt is horribly overdue) my good friend B asked me to make a nap quilt for her son. Since he was the recipient of my very first quilt, and is kind of a super important kiddo to me, I was happy to oblige, but really, what to make him?
I started this quilt with the owls fabric that is in the center of each log cabin and on the borders, and I had originally intended to use it in a much different design, but after cutting the fabric and test piecing a block...well, let's just say it was the right call to switch to log cabins instead.
The binding is scrappy using up the leftovers from the logs--I was shy two inches, so I pieced in some black as well--and the backing is classic chevrons in black and white. Did you know the chevrons now come in flannel? We knew we wanted a flannel backing, and when I researched what flannel options we had available, this bad boy came up, woo!
Now, to get this quilt to Mr. M for snuggling enjoyment! I'm linking up with TGIFF with Ms. Midge and Finish It Up Fridays at Crazy Mom Quilts.
This was a part of my Q2 Finish-A-Long list, woo!
