This is a Traditional Log Cabin Quilt Block. This is what my grandmother taught me to put together on my very first quilt when I was 7 years old.
This pattern is easy to put together and a lot of fun. Looks great in any colors or use your scrap bag fabric.
You can layout the blocks in so many different patterns once you have them all made.
There is a quilt layout that comes with this pattern along with fabric yardage measurements to complete the quilt.
Included also are Rotary Cutting instructions and Paper Piecing Templates.

I started quilting when I was about 7. My grandmother was always making quilts and she taught me the stitches, piecing and how a quilt went together. Trial and error, some on my own, others with my grandmother and mother and I found that I loved to quilt, design and embroider. These are my life's passions.
One of my favorite mentors is Lynette Jennings, I love Thimbleberries Quilts and all of her books. I find myself drawn to the Think Pink Fabric Collection and the The Quilt Pink for Hope Quilt Book by Better Homes and Gardens. I like to create quilts for Breast Cancer Awareness and put them in the auctions to help this cause.
My sister, mom and I love to quilt together, we can whip through a 3-5 lap size quilt tops in a weekend. We usually get together 2 weekends a month and create as many as we can, then mom and I quilt them during the week and box them up and set them aside until October. We take them and donate them to local charities that allow us to hand them out to people in need. We usually get together before hand with a couple other friends and put together about 10-12 batches of cookies, brownies and goodies to make up small boxes to hand out along with the quilts.
Its just something that we feel good about and a way for us to get out in the community, meet people and bring a little love to them in their time of need.
I love to have a new pattern or patterns to put a quilt together and am forever playing with different layouts.
If you ever need help with a layout, a specific size block or pattern I sell here, or would like a pattern of yours laid out and professionally created in digital format, please feel free to contact me. firstname.lastname@example.org
