Valerie shows you how fast rotary cutting linked with the sewing machine can make this quilt in double-quick time.
Fast, accurate and satisfying
I just love this form of construction – it allows me to be fast and accurate and satisfies my need-to-sew and Log Cabin works so well with all sorts of colours – just remember that the colour split is diagonally – light one side and dark the other.
Lots of variations
There is a huge range of possible settings with this standard block – try some and see – they will depend a little on your colour choice.
Looking through a camera lens or a door viewfinder (available from all good diy stores) really helps with the light/dark and tones – particularly good for scrap quilts.
The most common settings seen are the Fields and Furrows (as used in the display quilt) and Barn Raising – which is the large triangle setting.
You can decided which fabric you consider to be light and which dark – indeed the sharp eyed amongst you might notice that the display quilt has the colours reversed – I wanted more of the turquoise than the darker pink.
