Today I will show you the EASIEST possible way to make a LOG CABIN block.
WITHOUT measuring any strip length!
The finished block measures 7 1/4" x 7 1/4"
My fabric selection : a red center, three dark pink and three light beige.
You can use any colors, but always a dark side and a light side.
For the central square, cut 1 1/2" x 1 1/2"
Cut your strips from the Cross Grain (from selvage to selvage), width 1 1/2".
The first piece to add to the red center is a square, same dimensions as the center.
|Two squares pieced|
Piece those two squares right side against right side. Open and press. Turn once CLOCKWISE.
Add the strip of the same fabric, sew right side against right side.
Cut the remaining length of the strip.
Open and press. Turn once CLOCKWISE
Add the light color strip for the second row.
Cut the remain.
Go on the same way all the time for the other rows, always turning ONCE CLOCKWISE
and ALTERNATING two dark strips and two light strips.
Press hot without moving your iron.
Your block is now finished, you may just need to trim the sides to get an accurate square of 7 1/4".
Enjoy your Log Cabin!
