Log Cabin Christmas Cushion from Lewis & Irene
Christmas Ideas • Educational, G, 01-Nov-2017
Sally Ablett has designed a range of quilts using the log cabin design; but in this video Valerie works on just four blocks. They could easily then be turned into a cushion.
Valerie talks about how to keep the block flat by pressing the seams; and also about sewing down the side with two-seams. This is a neat trick to keep you on the right track.
