Free Log Cabin Block Pattern | Scrappy Affair Quilt

Free Log Cabin Block Pattern. As I have been making my blocks with random strips of my fabrics it has been a lesson in colour combinations, accurate 1/4 inch seams, cutting accuracy etc etc. Apart from the obvious lessons it has also been a pleasure to see fabrics that have been tucked away for a rainy day or that special quilt being used. It is so nice to have these gorgeous fabrics being used and documented in this quilt. My blocks are made with strips cut 1.5 inches wide. Separate your fabrics into light and dark.

A squares cut (two) squares one Red, one light 1.5 inches x 1.5 inches

B Cut (two) light strips 2.5 inches

C Cut (two) Dark strips 3.5 inches

D Cut (two) light  strips 4.5 inches

E Cut (two) Dark strips 5.5 inches

F Cut (two) Light Strips 6.5 inches

G Cut (one) Strip 7.5 inches.

Sew your A squares together. Add B pieces, then C pieces, then D pieces, continue adding rounds till finished. This makes a 7 inch block, it is easy to change the size just keep adding rounds for a larger block. Or if you would like a smaller block add less rounds.

There are many ways to arrange your blocks, I suggest making a few first then playingwith them on a design wall to see which arrangement you like best. As I am still deciding on this you will need to wait until my next post to see how I have arranged my Log Cabin Blocks.

The border for my Feathered Star Quilt are pieced blocks, using neutral fabrics with applique on top. Because the feathered star blocks use many fabrics, placing a single printed light background fabric under the applique would just stand out too much. Take a look at my process for mixing up the fabrics in the applique borders.
