    I ran across this on Etsy and absolutely love it - especially if the center block had a fussy cut square :)

    Is this a log cabin?

    Looks to me like a variation of the log cabin.... Love this quilt! You are very lucky to have found it.

    That's a great block, but I need to see the back to see how it is constructed. Not a log cabin.

    I would say no also.

    Do you see how it is made? You assemble two strips with a shorter cross-strip at the end; make 4 of those. Then sew them on to the center square as if you were making a log-cabin. Only thing is you have one extra short seam to sew at the end.

    Clever. Think I will bookmark this one.

    Edit: Actually, you would have to sew each component to one side of the square first, then go around and finish the 4 seams. Still would be easy to do!

    I agree that it's not a log cabin. But it sounds like Prism99 has figured out how to make it. Maybe she will post a tutorial for the rest of us? Hint Hint!

    Well, I have to master posting digital photos first. Just got my camera today! (20yo dd has hogged the family camera for years. Finally bought my own and am going to keep it hidden when not in use so she doesn't know we have another camera.....)

    Very pretty, but I wouldn't say it was a log cabin.

    Wow I love it! Really cute. Looks like it wouldn't be too hard to wing it on the pattern.

    It could be a variation of the log cabin quilt, I have a book that has lots of variations.
    It is a pretty block, whatever it is.

    I think it's a variation of a rail fence, just has a square in the middle instead.

    I was thinking it looked like a fence/rail variation too :)

    oh I'm hoping Prism99 will post a tutorial or somebody will find a pattern. I need step by step - I can't wing anything yet.

    That's really cute! It looks like it would need one partial seam.

    I'm making some blocks for the border on my Giant Dahlia and I sewed all the strips together to cut into strips of squares then changed my mind about the block I wanted to do. I found that in order to use what I had already sewn I had to do a partial seam.

    It turned out well though. The center of the block is white and I'm pressing all 4 sides outwards and it gives it a really nice look.

    Technically probably not, but creative wise, I would say yes.
