Talk about an quick, easy pattern. I was so enthralled with the fabrics that I thought this simple pattern would show them off. I wanted a quick easy quilt for myself, and this certainly qualified. I'm backing with it champagne-colored minky. It gets cold up here in Minnesota, and I made it to snuggle with while I watch TV. Turns out it looks really good in our bedroom too.

I like everything about it! The fabrics, the colors, the simple pattern that shows off those gorgeous batiks. I'm sure you'll use it as a TV snuggle quilt but I bet it will be the one you toss on the bed for those extra chilly nights, too.

RE: Simple Logs

Your selection of colors is really the star on this one. It is simple but a wonderful showcase for the batiks. It's like you chose a simple pattern because you didn't want to cut them all up in little pieces. It's a treasure for sure. Good job.

Beautiful and I agree it is a great pattern for such gorgeous fabric. DH and I were watching TV today and they showed two men ice fishing in Minnesota, too cold for me lol, I have seen snow one time, it was so pretty but I was freezing!

Rosa~you've only seen snow ONE TIME?????? Was it real snow - where it accumulated on the ground or that itty - bitty snow flurries you all got in Georgia last year?? ~LOL~
Yes, snow is freezing!!! we are lucky this year - no real snow to speak of - hope I didn't jinx it!

Lois~you put together a simply elegant, beautiful quilt! The batiks are so pretty - they shine in the simplicity of the pattern. I love it! The Champagne Minky will be perfect! Please post another picture when you are finished!

RE: Simple Logs

Another reason I'm beginning to like the batiks...seeing that awesome combination of neutral colors! Since that pattern probably works up fast, I wouldn't doubt that you may want to make another similar quilt!!!

No seams or points to worry about matching:)))

Looking forward to seeing the finishing touches!

What size did you cut your blocks?

RE: Simple Logs

Sometimes simple is so elegant. I think it was wise to let the lovely fabrics speak for themselves.

RE: Simple Logs

Thank you all for the compliments. I was a little concerned when I was piecing it, that it would be too busy, but I'm really pleased with the final (well almost final) product.

Kate, the blocks are 7.5" x 10.5". Eight columns of seven blocks each. The pattern called for only 7 columns, but I had extra blocks so I figured I'd just make it larger. It's 56" x 65". It took 16 fat quarters. I'm using the leftovers to make the binding. That will probably take longer to assemble than the quilt top.

Because I'm using Minky on the back, I will take it to a long arm quilter. I'll probably have her quilt a very curvy loose pattern to offset the rigid brick pattern of the blocks.

It's looks so elegant!
Those fabrics are gorgeous and I like the pattern you've chosen. It's perfect for showing off the fabrics.
Thanks for giving the measurements.I was wondering about the sizes and the number of blocks you used.
