Log Cabin - Block 9 of Your First Sampler Quilt
Block of the Month • Educational, G, 01-Jan-2019
Simple to make from four smaller blocks. The colour change of two and two is optional, but adds more interest as this will be the centre of your quilt.
Valerie shows how to strip piece two of these blocks at the same time, which speeds up the process.
Log cabin – a great classic that makes into a brilliant quilt all of its own. And you can check out the fast method with Valerie in her video by clicking here.
