So I went to my stash, since most of my baby/children scraps were strips this pattern worked great. We didn't know the sex of the baby so I made it bright and colorful to work for either a boy/girl. I quilted in the ditch on my Bernina. On the white strips I used a varigated thread and the feather stitch to add interest. Finished size is 36 X 47.

If you are using from your stash-----------you can make individual strips from just a few inches to however long you want-----------cut only after you've sewn a few strips end to end. When complete, they'll be sort of willy-nilly when sewn together.

Eleanor Burns has some great books on how to make log cabin quilts with this method, in various sizes. This method is fast and rewarding, and always works for me!

I've been quilting less than 2 years and the ones I started with last January were definately the work of a baby quilter. Now that I'm a toddler I can really see the difference!

I made my own layer cake from leftover fabrics that I used in my crumb quilt backing, as I cut the squares for the backing I also cut 10 inch squares for my homemade layer cake.

I had to rip out all three rows which the first row was meandering and then I couldn't get the quilt to go back on the frame right. After a little bit of praying and a little bit of swearing, I was able to get it back on the frame and finish it! This is for a co-worker who commissioned me to make it for her. I quilted it with my Voyager 17 and used Hobbs polydown batting. Thanks for all the suggestions on how
