    If I have this right, this is a kit with a foam base & the pattern printed on it. You take pcs. of the fabric & press edges into the pattern lines with something thin like a butter knife. I've seem them at LQSs. They are pretty. And truly a NO SEWING project.

    I would make 4 log cabins for the foundation.
    A fifth LC would be for the center heart.
    Using a white square for the reverse applique heart shape, cut out the center opening after first stay-stitching on the heart line. This will be turned under in the reverse applique.
    Then you can either machine stitch the heart square to the background, one at a time (stop 1/4 inch short so you can finish the seam) OR applique the center heart square to the foundation blocks, having sewn them together.
    Either way, I'd then cut away the excess underneath.

    There are lots of ways to make this block.

    And Eleanor Burns has an easy "Love the Log Cabin" heart block.

    That is correct, but I have seen them cheaper somewhere. Will keep looking.

    I think the block is made using a foam block and the fabric pieces arepushed into the slots or groves. Clotilde.com has them for Christmas season a lot cheaper at $24.98 Hope this helps. I remember seeing it done on HGTV when they carried all the craft shows.

    Hi I just love this wall hanging it is made on foam board per set up it is a kit. However if you would llike a log cabin style heart you can find one in a book "still stripping after 25 years by eleanor burns. I just found a block she calls by many names on of them is in this book "my heart bleeds for you" also "broken heart" it is a little diffrent then this one I do think you can use the idea of the one to make the other. good luck happy quilting yippie

    Hi I am a newbie---but I think in my meandering I have seen a way that this was done.
    It was a foam block that has slits in it and you cut your fabric and tuck it into the slits.
    This girl was a quilter from another country and she did an amazing and beautiful clock
    this way. Absolutely beautiful. I had thought of trying it. I think you will love it!!
