  - Thy word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path!
->>Home ->Quilting ->Pieced Blocks

     This is a simple log cabin block.  It is simple to make, that is!  You start with a square of fabric for the center, then add a strip of a different color to each side around and around until the block is the right size.  This block is made in the traditional way having dark fabrics on two adjacent sides, and light fabrics on the other two sides.  This gives you a lot to work with when you put the blocks together to make a whole quilt top.  You can rearrange the blocks and see many different patterns emerge. This block is demonstrated in the book, The Quilter’s Handbook.  In fact, two different methods for a log cabin block are taught. 

     This is one of my favorite books.  It has instructions and tips for making so many different quilts using many different methods.  It includes chapters on making applique, English and American block piecing, six classic quilts, 3D or illusion patchwork, foundation piecing, miniature quilts, Seminole, and Bargello quilts, among many others.  There are also chapters discussing equipment and materials, designing a quilt, quilt layout and assembly, types of quilting, ‘the quilter and the computer’, exhibiting quilts, care and cover conservation of quilts, and many more.  There are even chapters on making yo-yo quilts and a folded star placemat.

      This book has such a great variety of teachings, it is great for the experienced quilter as well as the beginner.  Besides the 24 original projects demonstrated, it gives ideas and hints that are useful.  This book has something for everyone, and I would highly recommend it to anyone.
