A Quilt Along, My Life

1-A-Day, 3″ Blocks — Log Cabin

  Log Cabin Block

Today we’ll make this classic cutie.

 

Had lots more fun going through my scrap basket!

 

 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Cut:

  • 1 red square 1 1/2″

 

  • 1 green rectangle 1″ x 1  1 /2″
  • 1 green rectangle 1″ x 2″
  • 1 green rectangle 1″ x 2  1/2″
  • 1 green rectangle 1″ x 3″

 

  • 1 cream rectangle 1″ x 2″
  • 1 cream rectangle 1″ x 2  1/2″
  • 1 cream rectangle 1″ x 3″
  • 1 cream rectangle 1″ x 3  1/2″

 

 

Start by sewing the 1″ x 1  1/2″ green rectangle

onto the left side of the red square.

Press as sewn, then away from the square.

 

 

Next, sew the 1″ x 2″ green rectangle onto the bottom.

Press.

 

 

Sew the 1″ x 2″ & 1″ x 1  1/2″ cream rectangles

to the right side & top.

Sew the 1″ x 2  1/2″ & 1″ x 3″ green rectangles to the side & bottom.

 

 

Sew the remaining cream rectangles

as shown to complete the block.

Be sure to press after each rectangle is added.

 

 

I had fun playing with fabric combinations in a couple more.
