Log Cabin Quilting for Quilters Who Love Paper Piecing.
Everyone who loves Log Cabin blocks will love owning this book! Not only does it include the traditional Log Cabin Block (in four sizes), it takes the Log Cabin out of the past and into a new creative realm of innovative block design. We've twisted the logs and changed the usual rectangular strip shape-making this the most exciting collection of Log Cabin blocks ever! We've included new pictorial blocks where the logs become flowers, houses, hearts, birdhouses, baskets, a cat, a bunny, a tree and even an ornament. We've definitely stretched the definition of a Log Cabin block being strips (or logs) added around a center square. Using the foundation method for piecing, the quilter doesn't have to worry about exact cutting of any weird shapes or tedious matching of points. Pieces are added to a paper or muslin foundation using a stitch-and-flip-open technique where all you have to do is stitch on the line. We've also included instructions for planning and finishing quilts using Log Cabin blocks so that you will be able to successfully complete your own unique quilt. If a quilter loves Log Cabin blocks and paper/foundation piecing, these blocks will bring hours of enjoyment and delight quilters of all skill levels.
The Log Cabin block is the favorite traditional quilting design of most quilters, according to a recent survey by DRG. Full-sized patterns Color drawings for every block 8-page instructional section giving how-to information on paper piecing or foundation piecing
