Log Cabin Quilts are a classic quilting pattern that are easy to make and can be customized to fit any decor.
To make a Log Cabin Quilt, start by deciding on the size and colors of the quilt. Once you have chosen the colors and size, you can begin to cut the fabric strips.
The strips should be the same length and width, and should be cut on the bias to ensure that the quilt is sturdy and will lay flat. Next, sew the strips together in a log cabin pattern to form the quilt top.
After the quilt top is complete, layer the quilt top with batting and backing fabric and then quilt the layers together. Finally, bind the edges of the quilt with binding fabric and you will have a beautiful Log Cabin Quilt.
