A few weeks ago I bought a fat-eighth bundle of Violet Craft's latest line Waterfront Park. Amanda always has the best bundles in her shop Westwood Acres and I find the fat-eighth ones irresistible. They're a great size to use for one or two baby quilts and not feel like you are breaking the bank or have loads of scraps left over.
I have been wanting to try the Log Cabin HST tutorial by my friend Natalie since I first saw it a few months ago. So I decided to combine the two and see what happened. Turns out, it was a little chaotic, but after looking at it a bit longer I really like it.
I decided to use this calm Ikea print for the backing as a counterpoint to the busy front. Kona Cerise just happens to go really well with the colors in this line, so it was an easy choice for the binding. And of course my go-to wavy quilting was another given. Straight lines echoing one of the diamond shapes would have been cool, too, but what can I say? I like the waves.
If I get a little time today, this one will probably be going in the shop. Have a great day!
