Creative Log Cabin Patchwork

Front Cover
Guild of Master Craftsman Publications, 2003 - Crafts & Hobbies - 115 pages
The beauty of log cabin patchwork sewing projects lies in their rich use of color, innumerable options for positioning the blocks, and huge range of designs. Better yet, for beginners, log cabins are easy to make. These fabulous and varied patchwork pieces extend the craft to its utmost, and adapt traditional patterns and methods to produce diamonds, triangles, octagons, and hexagons alongside classic squares. Each technique is illustrated with diagrams and detailed examples, so newcomers will feel confident completing the most basic projects, while those with more experience can have fun exploring their creativity and extending their skills. The attractive designs and finishing procedures are diverse: the circle effect, random rose, pineapple spiral, courthouse steps, and Greek key pattern, chevron and arrowhead borders, binding and piping, mitred and double-mitred borders, and gathered and pleated frills. Along with quilts, use these patchwork designs on cushions, curtains, tablecloths, potholders, and many other useful and decorative items.
