    Log Cabin-Different widths

    Is there a pattern to make a log cabin quilt using different widths of fabric. I foolishly cut tooo much fabric for strip quilts and now I would like to do something different with them. Thanks for any help. Busy Lizzie

    it is often referred to as a curved log cabin block or sometimes an offset LC. They are super easy to draft yourself with graph paper. I made one using 1 1/2" strips and 1" strips. I posted a pic here: https://www.quiltingboard.com/pictures-f5/scrappy-log-cabin-clam-shell-setting-t275921.html

    I know I'm a broken record sometimes but the Converging Corners block is a fantastic use of different widths and scraps. You can even use scraps of background fabric instead of using all the same for a totally scrappy winner!

    Thanks for sharing-I don't think I had ever seen it before. So, I copied it and printed it. I think it is a great block!

    You can make a regular LCQ with different widths of fabric. Decide on the size you want the block to be and cut the blocks down to the same size.

    Thank you for sharing this tutorial. It's great use of those strips we all have from other projects.
