Log Cabin Quilt

The Log Cabin quilt block is one of the most versatile blocks ever created.  Traditionally, there would be a red fabric in the center of the block to signify the fire in the fireplace of the cabin.  Then the "logs" (fabric strips) are placed around the "fire".

There's a great tutorial for doing Log Cabin blocks at the Quilter's Cache here.  Marcia Hohn of the Quilter's Cache explains how to create this block so even a beginning quilter can understand and make this beautifully.

The quilt shown here is one that I sold in my Etsy shop and uses a variety of blues and creams/whites.  I decided to break from tradition and use blue for the center instead of red for this quilt.
