Quilters can explore the creative possibilities of Log Cabin, the most popular and adaptable patchwork pattern, through these techniques, diagrams, and inspiring photographs.
Log Cabin is the quintessential quilt block, at its most basic strips sewn in order around a square center. Generations of quilters have been fascinated with the limitless variations possible by changing the central shape, the widths of the strips, the arrangement of blocks, and the interplay of lights and darks. That one simple block can easily become pineapples, pinwheels, or zigzags. Log Cabin Quilts Unlimited provides everything a quilter needs to design and create an original Log Cabin quilt: options for block construction, 18 block styles with many variations, setting options, photographs of outstanding quilts from primitive to contemporary looks, and a workbook with full-page diagrams to copy and color so you can see how the finished quilt will look.
