    Need help with Log Cabin blocks

    Help, Please
    I found these blocks and fabric at a local thrift shop--No pattern , only blocks (some partially set together), borders and binding cut, plus extra uncut fabric. I believe some of the blocks are typical log cabin, others are modified with extra color strips in corners; these I have labeled #2 blocks. The blocks which are pieced tog into 3 lg block strips are the #2 blocks. Each of the block types are approx 7"sq. I know there are many variations for setting the log cabin blocks together for quilt tops,but wondered if any of you quilters might know which pattern this quilter had in mind? It is pretty and very nicely done. I guess my last choice would be to unsew the lg 3 block strips ( 4 of them) and start with the 7'' blocks. Total 7" blocks are 42 #1 and 12 #2 which are not sewed tog. into strips. Any suggestions would be much appreciated

    Just lay them all out on your bed and you'll see that you have an entire top just like the three rows already sewn together. Your #2 blocks are the bottoms of the row you show and the top of the next. Beautiful find!
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    I think what you have there is the Pam Bono 'Victorian Log Cabin'. Take a look here: http://pamsclub.com/index.php?catego...hk=1&Itemid=71

    How many of the #1 blocks do you have?

    My guess is that the #2 blocks are supposed to have sashing between them (as in the rows already sewn together) and also between the rows. Depending on how many of the #1 blocks there are, I would suppose these are for the corners or outside edges.
