Log Cabin Baby quilt
This is the Log Cabin Baby Quilt all quilted and completed! I have machine appliqued a duck in the center. And it has 4 inch strips of fabric sewn all around. Some of the strips are baby-type fabric and some are not. The quilt measures about 39 by 49 inches. The backing is made of flannel. I machine quilted it using the free-motion method. This method is so simple, I recommend it for any small quilt. Safety-pin baste the quilt. Lower the feed dogs, or cover them with a feed-dog cover, whichever your machine will do. Use a free-motion foot on the machine. Set the stitches to very small. I have a pair of gloves that I wear to help control the fabric. I sew a small strip at a time. It helps to practice on a scrap of fabric and batting before beginning.
