What materials did you use? Cotton Medium Dots fabric by Riley Blake Designs: 1 jelly roll (2.5 inch strips) and 1 charm pack (5 inch square). I separated the pastel colors from the primary colors. I also used jelly roll for the white strips.

What are you most proud of? instead of creating each block separately, I built all 6 blocks, 1 log at a time. for example, I added log "A" to the center block, by chain stitching together all 6 blocks. Then I added log "B" and chain stitched all 6 blocks. this allowed me to play with the colors by trading logs before sewing.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? play around with placement of logs, and also with placing of blocks. have some fun with it, make it up as you go along.

my first log cabin project; I started out small with only 6 blocks and I used pre-cut fabric. its a whimsical version of the night and day block. My contrast is polka dots vs solids, and/or color vs white.

Really cute idea for a baby blanket. Done in flannel it would be so soft and cuddly. Love the idea of polka dots and large log cabin.
