This is an easy project to complete, even for beginners. Laura from Sew Very Easy demonstrates step-by-step how to construct the quilt in the following video.
Notice her great tip for making each block different while not slowing down the stitching time. This can be used on other projects, as well.
The measurements you need to make this quilt are as follows:
- About a yard of red, cut into 36 2 1/2″ squares with the rest used for the border
- About three yards of a large focal print. Cut 18 11″ squares, then cut the squares on the diagonal to produce 36 big triangles. Use the remainder for the outer border.
- One-third of a yard of nine complementary fabrics for the logs. Cut 2″ strips from each fabric, across the width of the fabric (44″). Then cut each strip into 3 1/2″, 5″, 6 1/2″, 8″, 9 1/2″, 11 1/2″ lengths. You’ll need 36 of each of the sizes for the half log cabin squares.
- Trim the blocks to 10 1/2″.
The center of the quilt is 60″ x 60″. Add the width of your borders for the finished size.
