Spotlight Wednesday

 Welcome everyone. Today we are going to look at a few different Logcabin Blocks.

First, we have your Basic Log Cabin Block. The one I think most of us are familiar with. This is the type of block we have been making a sample of in our Monday Group Video.                      

And this Kickback Friday I will be showing you how by just playing with the positioning of this one block in a quilt can give you many different looks.

This is a Half Log Cabin block. This block is put together by stitching strips to just two sides of your centre square.  I may make a little video of this method too. Because I know it's easier to understand these things when you can see them actually being made up.

Thick & Thin Log Cabin Block.                                            
This one does what it says on the tin.  It's  stitched together the same way as the basic Log Cabin block. Working around a centre square with thick strips on one half (two sides) and thin strips on the other half (two sides).

And finally we come to Courthouse Steps Log Cabin Block. This block is put together a little differently and I will be posting a video lesson on how to make this block next Monday (18th March 2013)

There are other variations on Log Cabin Blocks. But I think we have enough samples to be starting with here.  Looking forward to chatting with you all again on Kickback Friday. Yours, in Stitches,                            Joy
