Dogwood Trails Small Lap or Baby Quilt

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!


I'm loving working with Dogwood Trails, a line of fabric from Sentimental Studios for Moda Fabric.  The sweetest dogwood blooms blend perfectly with shades of pink, blue, sage green, and white.  You can see the entire fabric collection at Threadbias.  I love using their site to find fabric coordinates.  
This quilt is 100% from my stash, and I've still got a ton of it left!!  I can't wait to make more super sweet quilts with it!
Dogwood Trails Lap Quilt
The pattern is a Giant Log Cabin block, inspired by a quilt found on My Quilt Infatuation.  Lately, when I find a pattern I like, I have been pulling out fabrics and making it within a day or two rather than waiting forever or not making it at all!  Which is a good thing!  Oh my, you should see the list of quilt patterns I have bookmarked on my computer with hopes to make someday - it takes 11 seconds for the computer to scroll down through them all, there are so many - hundreds!!

The center green piece was just too yummy to cut up!

Two rows of strips from the front mixed with Rose Parade from Moda complete the backing.
