    Looking for Log Cabin pattern to print at home?

    Anybody know where I can buy and download a log cabin pattern for a 10" or 12 " block?

    What size do you want your strips to be?

    1" finished. I have a 6" block but that's way too small and I want to do one for a king size bed!

    Cut the material in strips of 1 1/2" and just keep adding until it's the size block you want. I did just that about 6 months ago and it worked out wonderfully! Use the first block to piece together your measurements. Hint-make your center block (2" square), a color that will stand out, like red! Good luck! I know you can do this!
    Go forth and sew!

    Like orangeroom said just keep adding strips to your 6" block until you get 10 or 12 inches.

    Ditto for Orangeroom. That's how I did mine. It works perfect!
