The log cabin quilt block is a popular, traditional quilt pattern that is pieced together using strips of fabric, with a small square at the centre of the block. Log cabin quilt patterns are a staple in American quilting, and first rose to popularity during the time of the Civil War.

In this class, students will be talked through the construction of both the traditional form of the block and the popular modern "quarter log cabin" version, and will be able to cut and sew one up during the class. Guidance will be given to then replicate this block at home to create a quilt top of approximately 48" square.

Students are welcome to either bring their own machines (bring your manual too!) or use the Backstitch machines for free. We will be teaching using a 1/4 inch foot which the Backstitch machines are equipped with.

Materials List:
Quilting cotton: 4 fat quarters of different quilting cottons - plain or printed. Please see our Quilt Fabric section.
Thread suitable for piecing. We recommend Aurifil 50wt
