    Lightbulb Quilt as You Go: Log Cabin

    Sending a step by step tutorial on the Long Cabin (I hope). Since the cite has changed, I'm still trying to find my way. Bear with me.

    Thanks a million, I've made 3 log cabin quilts but I always struggle with the putting them together. I am going to try your method and pray to God I can figure out how to get it together. Thanks so much, I know you people who do tuts put a lot of time and effort to doing them for us and I really appreciate it. Thanks again, Wendy

    I guess I am being thick headed, I don't understand how you get the batting in the sashing. But it looks like a great method, I just don't get that step.

    Huh?

    Not quite sure I understand. I read the tutorial and it starts with 13" squares of backing and batting. Then you add the center followed by the strips. The outside strips are 2 3/4" to help with squaring. Then you square up to 14"??? Are you leaving fabric outside the batting and backing?? The pictures seem to show a white edge showing outside the black. Can you clarify for me?

    The sashing is the joiner for blocks and rows etc. When they back sashing is attached to 2 pieces with a 3/8" seam, open the 2 pieces and the batting of each will touch each other. No other filler is needed. Hope this helps.

    When you finish sewing the block, you square it up to 14" through all layers. Then your block is clean and precise.

    I'm confused. If you start with 13" how can you trim to 14"? What did I miss?

    I'm sorry, it should read 15" backing and batting squares. You build the log cabin on top and square up to 14".

    I'm sorry, the backing and batting should be 15" squares. I'll try to fix it.
