Behind the Seams- Cabin in the Garden
This log cabin quilt reminds me of a little cabin in the countryside surrounded by the bounty of a diligent hardworking gardener.
The fabric came together by inspiration of the center square. This fabric is from a well know designer called, Kaffe Fassett. He designed the fabric with all the many fruits of summer in mind. I love how there are bits of grapes, peaches, melons, and other fruits and flowers. The solid Robert Kaufman, Kona fabrics pull the colors from the center square. The peach and berry colors go from light to dark as they drift away from the center square. The backing is a deep purple.
The top quilting echoes the log rectangles. I wanted a simple pattern to create a sense of peace as you gaze upon it.
Inside is a perfect warm, heavy weight cotton wool batting to keep warm on cold evenings. It also helps it to highlight the top quilting.
The binding is machine top quilted for added strength.
Created as a lap size 45”x 60” this is a perfect fit for fitting over your upper waist and feet. Finally a throw that is big enough to actually keep you warm! I love the bright bold colors. It would be a great focal piece in a living room or draped over the foot of the bed to bring beauty to your bedroom. Shop Cabin in the Garden
