Log Cabin quilts have been a long-time favorite among quilters, popular since the mid-1800¿s when both the pattern and technique were new. Today the basic log cabin block technique of sewing strips of fabric around a center square remains the same, while the quilt settings and fabrics take the log cabin quilt from classic to contemporary. This volume teaches traditional Log Cabin block construction, including Courthouse Steps and Half Log Cabin, and how to design your own Log Cabin quilts. 7 quilt projects use 7 classic Log Cabin quilt setting variations, including Barn Raising and Straight Furrows. 12 more projects are provided using the classic Log Cabin block in a variety of contemporary, innovative settings. Includes complete step-by-step technique photographs and instructions for piecing Log Cabin blocks, Courthouse Step blocks and Half Log Cabin blocks.
