Confession of a Quilter


Posted on February 5th, by Amy in a Notion or Two, random. 23 comments

I have never made a log cabin block. Never – of any sort! This is one of the most basic quilting blocks I have yet to make. I browsed through flickr and found a few extraordinary examples of how amazing these blocks can be.
1. I found a quilt top today!, 2. my new log cabin, 3. Crazy Log Cabin quilt… HPIM0342, 4. log cabin

Have you made a log cabin quilt? I would love to hear your experiences, tips and tricks! I received in the mail last week a collection of vintage sheets for A Notion or Two swap for Amy. And she wants wonky log cabin blocks! I’m pretty sure I can figure this out – but having help is so much fun!

Hope your having a great day!
Blessing ~ Amy

PS – Feel free to link up to your projects in the comments – I would love to see your creations!

  1. I love all of those too. Please pass along useful tips when you get them! I helped my mom make a log cabin YEARS ago. Wonky ones? Oh boy. I’m excited to learn – it’s the reason I joined this little bee!

  2. You’ll be surprised at how easy they are. There are lots of wonderful tutorials, but I second the tallgrass prairie tute. You’ll do awesome, I can’t wait to see yours!

  3. I was always afraid of making a log cabin square…all of those seams looked like the perfect way to get a wonky square. Then I made one and got addicted…I haven’t stopped since.

  4. I love log cabins. I aspired to them when I started quilting. My second quilt was one and I just kept going.

    This is my first time on your blog and I am impressed, greeted by one of my favourite Dave Matthews songs too.

  5. I’ll be a detractor… I love the look, but I hate making them. They go together quite easily, but I find them a bit boring. Pros and cons. You get a good-looking quilt fast, but not a huge enjoyment in the process.
