Craftsy Block of the Month 2012 »
InstructionsIt's easier to start out with wider strips, and then cut them down to fit the block. I used strips that were 2" to 2.5" wide.
Type of item: Home Decor
Style: Whimsical, Cute, Retro / Vintage
What was your inspiration?
I love funky log cabin blocks, though I've never made one. I was excited to try that technique out on this block. I decided to start with a 4-sided block in the center so the final block would look more like a log cabin.
What are you most proud of?
The fun use of prints and colors within the block.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
I found that the log cabin look of the block showed up more when I used a similar color in each round.
