Courthouse Steps, Baby Steps 26

Welcome to the first mid-week retreat of 2016.

I may interrupt the Log Cabin theme occasionally, but most weeks I will continue to share some virtual Log Cabin quilt designs, and you are welcome to take a short break to dream about real Log Cabin quilts, or even a real log cabin.

Courthouse Steps, Baby Steps 27

Most of my Log Cabin designs have at least 49 blocks … this series have just 25 blocks.

Using 9 inch blocks made with 1 inch strips these would be nice cuddle rugs for children of all ages.

With  2 inch wide strips you would use more fabric, but not a lot more time, you would have a much bigger quilt!

Back to the real world until next week!

    I like them all. I think no 29 is my favourite tho’. A Log Cabin may be on the list for our Retreat.

    I also like #29. It is really easy to enlarge log cabins by using wider strips but a lot of new quilters have real problems with “changing” anything in a pattern.


    • Cindy,

      That depends on how newbies learn … those who do a general sampler course are usually able to make changes, even if they think they can’t design anything. Those who do repeat block design quilts have to learn each design separately.
