At first, I wanted to try making a strip quilt for the second of the baby girl quilts I was making for my aunty’s choices. I had fun cutting a pile of purple and pink fabrics into random-width strips, but then I saw that I had done this:
crooked strip
Before this, I had been really careful about refolding fabric and lining up selvedges prior to cutting it, but this time I thought I could get away with just using the fold line that the fabric came with. I guess not!

Fortunately, I had recently seen Teaginny Design’s awesome Summer Cabin quilt, and gave that a shot instead. Here’s what I ended up with:
baby girl log cabin quilt
I was tickled that my log cabin ended up almost perfectly square, even though I didn’t plan anything!
