"Curve it up" Log Cabin

One of my first quilts was a Log Cabin quilt.  It's such a fun and easy block to put together and a really great way to use up your scraps.  We, for sure wanted to add the Log Cabin block to our "curve it up" series and after lots trial and errors this is what I came up with.


Believe it or not, my first testing block was all messed up.  I completely did up all the log cabin blocks wrong.  I think I've been doing to much curved piecing!

...and to give you an idea of what these would look like side by side, repeated:


This is a computer mock up, isn't it fantastic!  Love it!

Remember to share all of your blocks with the rest of us on the "Curve it up" Flickr group!

The tutorial can be found on the next post.

Happy sewing!

This is stunning! I love the repeated look. Gorgeous! I really need to get comfortable with using my ruler so I can do this.

Your blocks just keep getting better and better! I bought your ruler but haven't had a chance to try it yet...looks like its time!

This is so fabulous! Where can I find an overview of how your Curve-it-Up tool works? I've been lurking here for a bit and have seen a number of these cool patterns that you're posting, but I don't really understand how you're making them. :-)

well, you have certainly outdone yourself on this one....love it!!! Just finished hand quilting a log cabin I started at least 10 years ago, now I can get my curved ruler out and go to town...

I've been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It's pretty worth enough for me.
In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made good content
as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.

I have a question about the Quilters Companion magazine you were published in. Is it possible for me to get a copy of that and/or subscribe to the magazine with US delivery? Thank you. Angie =)
