Hello, everyone! Doesn’t it seem like a perfect day to learn something new? Today, we’re going to show you how to make the classic Log Cabin quilt block! This is a must-know for any quilter, and it’s a super versatile block that can take on many different looks, depending on fabric colors and placement.
We’re going with the classic size, so start with seven different prints, each cut into 2.5″ strips. Some prints are obviously not used as much as others, but if you want to make more than one block, you will need lots of strips!
Most of these fabrics are available in our fabric shop, or will be available shortly! The only print that is from our personal stash is that fun Cotton + Steel right in the middle. We chose that one for our center square, then went from lighter prints in the middle to darker prints on the outside. For one 14″ square Log Cabin block, cut your strips according to the picture below.Start assembling the block in the center, with the two squares. As usual, sew a 1/4″ seam and press seams toward the darker fabric.
So pretty! You can build a quilt in any size you want with this block. Refer to our Quilt Sizes Printable for popular basic quilt sizes.
