My fondness for log cabin quilts doesn't stop with fabric versions. Here is a knitted log cabin quilt that I made some years ago.
Each block was knitted as a unit. The yarn was from 21st century yarns. The whole thing took a lot of yarn, I remember having to order more, and then more again. It is quite warm, but the one drawback is that I knitted it in a silk/wool mix which makes it surprisingly heavy. It does have a nice shine and feel to it though if I were to knit it again I would use wool and probably a finer yarn to reduce the weight a bit.
