Hi Lucy just had to tell you I've just finished 1 square of your sunny log cabin blanket and feeling well chuffed.Thanks for your fantastic instructions.My husband bought me the kit for Xmas and it's been a challenge especially as I hadn't really crocheted before! I think this will be a brilliant project to while away the hours indoors over the next few months.😊

jennifer  lowden

thank you for showing your blanket, could any one get the first square pattern please.

Myra Wade

When I first saw the blanket I loved it; the bright cheerful colors, but I thought it was a quilt, and I thought "Oh, no!!" I always had in mind to make myself one, but I don't quilt. What a relief when I realized it was crochet. I do crochet!!!!!
Thank you so much for all the instructions and tutes. I'm going to start my first
Square soon......

Melly

Stunning. I didn't see your color vision until the last few pictures. Then my eyes bugged. There is no other proper response to the beauty!

Marie OShea

Another stunning project! I have made a number of your beautiful projects for my vintage caravan. Thanks so much for the inspiration!!

Olivia

Wow this blanket is amazing! The blanket really becomes something more as you join the squares together. Will you do other quilt patterns as crochet? I liked following your posts as you made it over several months.

Dorothy Bradbury

Finally finished my Sunny Log Cabin blanket - I love it! Thank you Lucy for your inspiration and clear instructions for this left handed new crocheter. I feel I can crochet anything now! My next project is a Coast Ripple blanket, kit ready and waiting in my yarn cupboard. Once again thank you very much x

Beautiful!

Hi Lucy, just wanted to say thank you so much for sharing this pattern, well, all of them really but this is the first CAL I've taken part in!
Such a clever pattern- I loved the big 'diamond reveal'!
I decided to make it in a softer group of colours but I really love your Sunny collection... might do the granny stripe now in those shades :)

Absolutely gorgeous! The vibrancy of that blanket certainly helps stave off the wintry days we're having at the moment!

Teresa

Stunning blanket!!!!! Thanks for sharing it and your joining technique. You are so generous to share your talent!!

Annie

Stunning!

Karen Erickson

Hi Lucy, im a beginner crocheter and just found your blog. I absolutely love your log cabin quilt, its stunning. Im off to spend some time reading through everything and im already totally inspired to learn more xo

Donna Blissett

You're absolutely a wonderful instructor.I just had to make this blanket, the colours remind me of home. I'm a tropical flower. Thanks again Attic Lady.!!

Sue Feichter

Just finished mine. Thank you so much Lucy. I love it

It's a really clever design, Lucy. It is amazing to me that you can see these things before they become a reality. I would never have thought of edging in different colours, nor indeed noticed that you had done so if you hadn't pointed it out, which just goes to show how well the colours all come together.

Veronique

Maybe I didn't read this detail :is the wool for the border included in the 18-balls-Kit, or is it necessary to add it to the order ?

If someone can answer to me, she will be very helpfull. Before I send the order.

I just finished a multicollored "Vasarely plaid". It's just a splendor. A 3-D plaid. You can see this one on french blogs, and Ravelry.

laura

Bravo!

Jennifer

I've been following your blog and loving the squares (and all that you do). I've ordered the yarn and can't wait to get the yarn and cast on. This is fabulous. Thank you so much for sharing. I'm a new crocheter, but the only way to learn is by doing.

Crotchety Cath

I want!!!

Anna

My word, what an incredible thing you have made there. I'm really...just mind boggled at how amazing it looks, and after years of reading, this might just be the blanket project I undertake. It just looks so amazing! Wow!

Elizabeth

Lucy, This is phenomenal. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this blanket. I'm not sure it's one I will make, because I'm not certain I'd enjoy the journey,but that finished project is stunning.

Nienke

Awesome! I suppose I was one of the people who wasn't too enthusiastic about this pattern, although I hadn't commented about that. But the squares didn't do much for me. Then you showed pictures of the finished project, and finally I realised what you wanted the squares to do. With the diamond shape appearing, I actually really started to love this blanket!

It's still not an 'easy' blanket to look at, meaning that it's a pattern that keeps dragging your eye over it, trying to work it out. Is it a diamond, is it a square, where do the 'lines' end, what colour links to what. Not like a ripple blanket where your mind just immediately understands it and it's fine and easy.

Patterns like this one are like you sometimes come across in a train or bus, on the back of a seat - the entire trip you'll be dragging your gaze all over the seat, trying to figure out the pattern, trying to find out why it captures your attention so.

So... I don't know what I'm trying to say. Probably that it's best to be underneath it just emerged in all the colours. Good job!

It is fantastic! I grew up around quilts and quilters. I have seen many variations of Log Cabin Quilts and this one is a spectacular one. Love it! Great job,Lucy! I hope you have many years of enjoyment and comfort from it.
