I finally finished this quilt!!  


Log Cabin Quilt (I used the pattern from "Last Minute Patchwork + Quilted Gifts")
Fabrics:  Joel Dewberry--Almond Sparrows(front) & Orange Damask (backing) from the Aviary Line; Kona Cotton Solid (I don't remember exact color)
Batting: Warm & Natural
Machine Quilted (PITA) in spiral type squares around each block

Now, I'm making matching pillow cases of the Orange Damask print.  After this project is over, I'll be finishing up the Hexagon Quilt made of Erin McMorris "Wildwood" fabrics! YUM!!

Sorry the picture is bad, but I just snapped a quick shot.  

It looks extra wrinkly because I left it sitting in the dryer too long! lol

wow, this is really great.  I love how the 2 fabrics kind of blend together a bit so it's more of a subtle pattern. Great work!

I love how the lines in the pattern fabric really steal you away from the log cabin pattern.  This is beautiful.

I think the fabric choices are just *perfect* on this - it gives it such a great unique look.

Sorry I don't have a more interesting comment, but I just wanted to say, "Wow!"

I love this! I have been wanting to try a log cabin for a while but have only seen them in multi colors. I love your two toned version!

What kind of yardage did you use?

This is stunning!

Thanks everyone!!  It's been so comfy to sleep under at night!  Now I just need to finish those pillow cases! lol  (I've gotten ahead of myself working on the hexagon blanket! lol)

Sugarpumpkin: I followed the pattern from the book, so off hand I don't recall the exact yardage!
