I wanted to make a Moderne Log Cabin Blanket from Mason-Dixon Knitting but I knew I would never finish it. So I calculated the dimensions for the Moderne Log Cabin Baby Blanket and doubled the width and length of each block and made it into a quilt.
These colors are much more true:
The original is done in garter stitch, which I love the look of because it of the lines it creates. I wanted to create the same feeling in my quilt, so I quilted each color in a different direction:
The binding is pieced from the leftovers from the top, and the backing is a taupe colored globe print
I didn't think I could manage a bed-sized quilt (this one measures 57" x 77"), but it was a lot more fun than I would have thought. I'm already working on my next one!
