Baby Makes Three Quilt

This is the final installment of my log cabin obsession, for now.  It has been fun to play with different numbers of blocks and various amounts of negative space in this quilt, as well as this one and this one.  I like the minimalist feeling of the quilts. Using only a few blocks, set off by a wide solid space, focuses the eye on the fabrics and shapes in those few blocks.
It has also allowed me to feature some squared off free motion quilting and a scrappy binding.  I used binding strips left over from three other projects.  There is the Hope Valley stripe, Kona berry, and Kona coal. The solid in the quilt itself is Kona ash.
The backing is a great Erin McMorris print with happy pinks and purples.  I think it adds a a whimsical, feminine touch to the quilt.
 This baby quilt finished at 37 x 45 and is available in my shop.
