I didn’t expect to find many variations using this layout … but have nearly 50 and I haven’t starting playing with the colours within the blocks yet!
Love the way the outer strip disappears into the background!
Apart from using just a distorted Log Cabin block squeezed into a diamond shape I have used tow triangular blocks in some designs. These blocks are constructed the same way as a square Log Cabin block, but start with a triangle.
Any shape can be used in the centre, including rectangles, hexagons and octagon. If it has more than two sides it is fair game to be used as the centre of a Log Cabin style block.
They don’t even have to have equals sides, but it is easier to put them together if they have!
Now that I have written that down I can see that I may have to experiments some more with odd-shaped Log Cabin style blocks!
