- Matching thread.
- Sewing machine.
Block templates and my selection of fabric:
- The templates will be uploaded on the ‘Learn quilting with 7 easy quilt blocks’ group page.

ils on Sunday.
You would be now used to cutting out your templates so I won’t go through that in detail. However, with the log cabin all strips will be cut out on a single layer fabric. With your templates I have given you a corresponding template map and you will see when you cut out your templates in some I have one corresponding number and in some I have two corresponding numbers. So whilst cutting, place this template map against the coloured block to ensure that you cut your strips from the correct shade of fabric colours.
In cutting your fabric, do the usual, place your template on a single layer of fabric and cut each template ensuring that you have all the required template cut outs.
Sewing your block:
As this block can be tricky I have also given you a picture of a sewing plan. Please follow the sequence and sew your block pieces accordingly, as seen below:
