This book rawks. (bangs head) Ann & Kay, creators of the eponymous blog and the book that sprang from it, are too funny. The blog

One of the patterns is a blanket in the style of the Log Cabin quilts. I loved the idea but didn't need another afghan, to say nothing of my minimal free time, which pretty much limits me to small projects. For example, the rag pillow cover I was knitting from an old pair of flannel pajama pants. It looked great, till I tossed it in the wash & it fell apart.

So, I had this 12 inch pillow form staring its blank stare at me, and a weekend to do...well, not much except sit around and tend my sick mom. I also had tons of wild colors of yarn from my recent amigurumi addiction. The end result was this.




Loud and uncoordinated, I know, but it was a ton of fun & I thought I'd share.  Grin

I dunno, sometimes loud and uncoordinated works. I believe this is one of those times.

I hope your mom feels better....

Awesome!  It's loud in all the right ways.  Three cheers for color.  Log Cabin was the first quilt block I ever did and now that I love to knit I will have to give this a try.  GREAT JOB!! and thanks for the link.

Cheers, rhubie

Awesome idea!  I too love the pattern but do not need another throw.  I'll be certainly adding this to my "must knit" list.

Now for my dumb question...what did you do for the back?  Just plain knitted? Or is it as pretty on the back as the front?

Thanks!

Love the idea of a pillow.  I have been wanting to try the log cabin pattern, but I don't need another afghan.  Bright colors make for better napping anyways.   Grin
