Log Cabin Variation

Log Cabin Variation

6″ x 6″ block

Fabric Requirements

2 different prints, I recommend a light and a dark one

Cutting

Cut from each

4 squares 1.5″ x 1.5″

4 strips 1.5″ x 2.5″

2 strips 1.5″ x 3.5″

Piecing the Block

Please, refer to the diagram below for the following steps.

Stitch 4 pieced squares to make a whole 6″ block, following the numbers 1 to 5.

Begin by sewing 2 different print 1.5″ squares (step 1–2). Add a dark 1.5″ x 2.5″ strip at the top (step 3). Sew a light 1.5″ x 2.5″ strip at the side (step 4). Sew another light 1.5″ x 3.5″ strip at the top (step 5). Voila, you’ve finished your first quarter. Make 4, carefully watching the placement of light and dark prints.

Stitch together 2 pieced squares to make 2 rows. Again, carefully check the orientation of those. Sew 2 rows together. That’s it!

  19. Hullo, from down under, Australia. I have made a quilt top using the block pattern. I used calico and jade. The name of the block was called Broken Squares. I have yet to quilt it. It can also be made with scrap fabric and one colour to highlight the pattern. Anna Jones
