I love the log cabin block. It is one of the very easiest to make (and I show you the easiest way yet). You can do so many things with it, as these patterns show. The log cabin quilt has been a favorite for many years. Evidence of the log cabin block were found on mummies in Egyptian tombs, Medieval England, and early Greece and Rome. Learn to make the log cabin block quickly and easily from this pattern. The log cabin is a great block for using up scraps. You probably have enough blues, and yellows or reds in your stash now to make these quilts. Buy the pattern now and get started. This pattern assumes you have very little quilting experience and has lots of illustrations to help you make this beautiful wall hanging. There is a bonus pattern of a log cabin heart included. Both wall hangings are 32" x 32". You will need fabric, a sewing machine, and a rotary cutter, cutting mat and see through ruler available at a quilt shop, sewing shop, or department store such as Wal-Mart.

I have been quilting for many, many years, and I still love creating beautiful things from fabric. I have been sewing since I was a child. My first sewing machine was a little hand-cranked toy which made a chain stitch. Then I had an electric one which had an on/off button. I finally graduated to a sewing machine with a foot pedal when I was 14. I started making my own clothes then. That was back in the days when fabric was inexpensive.
I started quilting as a means of keeping warm when I lived in a poorly heated house. Money was scarce, so I got old clothing from the thrift shop. I cut it up and sewed it into beautiful quilts. Gradually, the knitting, crochet, embroidery and macrame was pushed aside and quilting took over more and more of my spare time. I caught the bug and I was hooked.
I love cotton fabric. I love the different designs printed onto it. I have a large collection, probably more than I could ever use. I also love thread. Since I stopped buying so much fabric I now buy every beautiful spool of thread I see. Variegated thread is my favorite.
In my other life, I am a registered nurse working in a residential care plus emergency room facility in a very tiny town.
