Regular and Curvy Log Cabin Blocks - Adele Scott

Most quilts are made of traditional shapes which can be combined into unlimited patterns. Changing colors, contrast and placements creates the feel from modern to classic to whimsical to antique; but all might have the same building blocks!

Come for a review or maybe you’re new - With all the new products and methods available today these Log Cabin blocks are easier and more accurate than ever. Everyone will learn something new!

Try a block or two, work on suggested small projects or create your own custom quilt with your quilter’s “building blocks”.
