Dogwood Log Cabin

I saw this quilt a last week on pinterest and said to myself, "I have large scraps of that fabric.  I think I'll go make a quilt top!"  It didn't matter that I have 3 quilts in various stages and scraps out that I was in the process of cutting.  I had seen this pattern before in different fabrics, but it wasn't cute enough to make me stop what I was doing.  I changed the center on my quilt and added an extra row to make it a rectangle.  I used a 6.5 inch center and 4.5 inch strips of whatever length I had.

I added the dark pink and the solid looking pink because I didn't have enough different fabrics.  I know that dark pink kinda stands out, but I did try to spread it out evenly.  There wasn't anything else in my stash that went.  Sometimes you just gotta go with it.

I would like to ask you this - does this look like a baby quilt or a lap quilt for an adult?  My daughter and I are on opposite sides of this and we need another opinion.


  1. Not knowing the actual size of the person holding the finished quilt I am going to say baby quilt size. The fabrics are so pretty.Love that it looks like a giant log cabin block.

  2. Lovey quilt fabrics. I like the layout of the blocks.

  3. I love your Dogwood quilt. It is large enough to be a small lap quilt or a large baby quilt. If I were to sell it in my Etsy shop, I'd probably market it as a baby quilt.

  4. I love this! And yay for a fast finish. It could go for an adult or baby. I would choose depending on the size. I really like the contrast with the dark pink, and the addition of the light pink. You did balance their placement very well.
