At last I have started sewing a quilt for Milly's bed. It has been on my To Do List for awhile and now I have officially started. I was originally thinking a Stacked Chinese Coins, simple but effective, have never sewn one..... But then it all changed directions and I thought wonky log cabins? The girls will be in bunks soon and then they'll sort of match, both having log cabin quilts. Note the word sort of..... rainbow colours and 2 inch strips for Grace's verses pink and purple on with wonky strips. But they are at least log cabins!
So I pulled the above fabric from the stash. Thinking light to dark, pink on one side, purple on the other, framed by white and then smaller log cabin blocks down the sides.
Something like this? These are the first 4 blocks. There will be 8 for the top, about 16 inches square each, roughly. I'll frame each with a white border, about 4 inches? Not the most practical colour for a 4 year old but I love the crispness of white.
Here's my favourite. Onto the next four!
