    QAYG log cabin block tutorial.

    http://www.stitchedincolor.com/2013/...og-cabins.html

    Interesting but I would add the backing to the block as I made it, not wait until the blocks were done.
    Got fabric?

    How do you join the block together to make the quilt??
    Freedom is costly and quilting keeps us busy...

    Rachel, in an answer to your question, said: You join the blocks with a normal 1/4" seam. You would think this would make very bulky seams, but I've had a quilt on my bed for quite awhile made in this style. You would never notice or feel the difference in the seams at all unless you were looking.

    If you quilt the back to the front by only quilting along the seams of the blocks that reinforces the blocks and flattens the seams at the same time! So, yes, the back ends up having minimal quilting, but I figure that's just fine. It especially doesn't matter if you're making a bed quilt. This method is popular for making really large quilts like a queen or a king!
