    I googled Log Cabin pin cushion and found this. It was on Quilting Works.com
    I tried to copy and past the picture of it, but it wouldn't work. It has other quilt designs, but one is using the Log Cabin pattern, the pin cushion itself looks like a chicken. ???
    Try this. It's on their web site under Chicken pin cushion.

    http://www.quiltingworks.com/pattern...on-pattern.htm

    You should have:

    * 2 identical log cabin blocks, 4" x 4" (3 1/2" x 3 1/2" finished)
    * 1 square 2" x 2" of your light fabric
    * 1 square 3" x 3" of your dark fabric
    * 1 felt "comb"
    * 1 felt "beak
    * Rice & Stuffing

    Instructions:

    Patterns & Illustrations

    1. Lay down one log cabin block, right side up, as illustrated with the dark half of the block to the left.
    2. Place the felt beak as shown, with the tip of the beak pointing toward the inside of the block, about 3/8" down from the top edge of the block.
    3. Place the felt comb as shown, with the scalloped edge pointing toward the inside of the block, about 3/8" in from the right edge of the block. The comb will overlap the beak and help hold it in place.
    4. Place the second log cabin block on top of the first, right sides together, as shown - Matching light to light and dark to dark. Pin around the edges in a few places to hold everything in place.
    5. Check to make sure your log cabin blocks are right sides together, and that you have the dark half of the top block exactly on top of the dark half of the other block.
    6. Sew a 1/4" seam around 3 sides of the log cabin blocks, as shown. Make your stitches small so the dry-rice filling won't come out. At the bottom right corner, curve the seam in as shown.
    7. Turn
    8. With black embroidery floss, make French knot eyes. It's okay to stitch straight back and forth between the eyes to fasten the thread; the head area won't be stuffed.
    9. Finger press under 1/4" all around the opening. TIP: you can get a good crease if you run your thumbnail along the fold.
    10. Holding under the 1/4" seam allowance, match the center "back" seam of the chicken to the center of the "belly" seam. Look at the sample chicken; that should help you see what it should look like. Pin.
    11. Press your light and dark squares as if you were making prairie points: fold in half diagonally, wrong sides together, and then fold in half again and press. All the raw edges should now be on one edge.
    12. Lay the smaller light prairie point on the larger dark prairie point, matching raw edges.
    13. Remove the pin from the chicken. Tuck the prairie point "tail" into the seam. Look at it from the top and the underside to make sure the tail is in the center of the seam. Re-pin
    14. Starting at one edge, sew the opening closed as far as the center. Leave half the seam open from the center to the other edge.
    15. Using a funnel, pour dry rice into the chicken. Fill it about 3/4 full, not completely full.
    16. Finish sewing the seam.

    thank you, thank you, thank you QuiltingGrannie! That is exactly what I needed. And yes it is the quiltingworks site that I found it on. After I googled it I also found it again. I just need more than the pic they had to get started on it. I'm printing off your instructions now!

    Glad I could help. Between everyone who is on this board it usually doesn't take long to find answers to our questions, no matter what they are.
    Good luck and show us pics when you get it done! Have fun.

    This picture made it very simple for me to understand. I have to have visuals to learn anything.
