Why foundation piece your Log Cabins quilt?
These templates are especially handy if you find piecing on such a small scale fiddly. Lynne says, “foundation piecing your blocks may take slightly longer but will give a really neat finish to these small blocks.”
Her Cabin in the Sky quilt (below) combines two classic Log Cabin blocks: the traditional Log Cabin and the Pineapple block.
She’s used the calming blues and creams of Edyta Sitar’s Blue Sky line of fabrics (available in the UK from Andover Fabrics), brought to life by the red squares: a traditional Log Cabin centrepiece.
