Tuesday Tutorial ~ Mile a Minute Log Cabins

The log cabin block is a tried, tested and trusted block. It is one of my favorites. 

 In fact my first quilt was a log cabin quilt. Here it is faded, worn and well loved.

Our family’s Christmas quilt that we sleep under the week before Christmas to ensure that all our Christmas dreams come true is also a log cabin.

 I made this quilt for one of my sons long ago out of an American Patchwork and Quilting magazine. I housed my bloggy friends with giant log cabin blocks in this quilt and my wonky roses are a version of a log cabin block

 This one is from Vic at Park Hill Farm.

She has a lovely tutorial on how to chain these great blocks to make them a mile a minute.

 Make sure you check it out. Thanks Vic for letting me feature your method here today on Tuesday Tutorial. If you have a great tutorial you would like to share let me know. I’d love to share your knowledge here.

    that tutorial is exactly how I do the log cabin quilt – I have done one the same way with hand piecing also – just knot off at the end of each block.

    What lovely quilts-nice to see your progression from simpler to more complex. Interesting old white sewing machine. it looks like it has a large neck area for easy access to sew.
