Combine the classic look of a log cabin quilt with the bright and modern colors of contemporary color palettes to make a quilting pattern that is sure to wow any and all guests.

This simple quilt pattern might be a little intricate and complicated, but it is easy enough for beginners so long as you take your time. Just be sure to measure twice, because you can only cut once as you prepare your fabric.

This particular version of the log cabin quilt features cute colorful horses with complementary fun fabric borders. Use this same style or come up with something using your favorite fabric patterns.

From the Blogger: "I love the look (and the history) of log cabin quilts, so naturally, that's where I started. However, I did go with a more modern look. I made an all cotton top in bright modern fabrics, used flannel instead of batting for the middle, and backed it with minky fleece. This project only took me a weekend, as this is made in child size, but it could easily be adjusted by adding rows and columns of squares."

This looks like an easy quilt to make. I am a beginner at making quilts so I need something easy. I like the fact it uses the flannel as well. Easy to follow instructions and it should not take too long to make. Thank you.
