If you understand how to make a quilt-as-you-go log cabin block, you’re in fat city! That’s all this is folded in half. Your strips can be any width, the center square can be any size, you can make it larger – so many variables in making this little glasses case.
Start with a 9″ square of fabric and a 9″ piece of batting and a center square.
Place the fabric right side down, batting, mark an X to center the square.
The square could even be a 4 patch for example.
Cut two strips the size of the square.
Lay strips right sides to square and stitch through all 3 layers. Backstitch.
Fold out and finger press. Cut the opposite strips and sew.
You have completed Round 1. Continue adding rounds until your block reaches approximately 7″ x 7″ or whatever size you choose – the number of strips will be determined by the cut width of your strip.
That is how to make a log cabin quilt-as-you-go block.
