If you only want to make 25 Log Cabin variation blocks, and you want a king size quilt, you make big blocks, but if you want a baby quilt, you make small blocks.
Cut strips 1.5 inches wide, the blocks will be 9 inches square, and the 25 blocks will measure 45 inches … add borders as desired.
(Many patterns finish their instructions with the words “Quilt as desired.” Log Cabin quilts don’t need a lot of fancy quilting, just enough to hold the layers together, but I do like a border of some sort to keep the logs from rolling around too much.)
Love the one above!
Cut strips 2.5 inches and the blocks will measure 90 inches. To vary the block size you can also add more, or less, strips around the centre square.
This may be a mid-week retreat for those who like Log cabin quilts, but I am now about to leave home for a real retreat … there will be virtual quilts appearing while I am enjoying the company of real quilters.
