Let’s start with measurements for the log cabin block.
Backing: 8” x 8”
Batting: 8” x 8”
Center square: 1-1/2” x 1-1/2”
Strips: 3/4” wide
Layer backing and batting and place square in center.
Lay strip #1 on top of square and cut 2 pieces that size (center square can be any size)
Sew with a scant 1/4” seam with a reduced stitch length
Rotate and add strip #2, 3, 4, etc
Continue sewing strips until you have sewn 8 rounds.
With a shallow zig zag stitch, sew around the block.
Trim off excess batting and backing.
And that’s where I’m going to leave this for now. I’ll give you a week to get your block made. Next Monday night, November 6, we’ll assemble the case.
Reader quilts (and pets):
Both of these runners were made using Country Threads Goes Back To Charm School.
I was asked about the building covered in vines – here’s a progression of photos from the quilt shop and around the corner. It’s the north side of the quilt shop that’s covered.
Ivy and Finn came out for a run today – I wish I could post the video of Keeper and Finn – they run like greyhounds!!
Don’t miss Connie’s Halloween quilt show tomorrow!
