    this was the first log cabin quilt i made. I got the book by Elenor Burns "Quilt in a day". Shows this technique..instructions so clear.....each step has a picture...You can't make a mistake...except with this first quilt i learned that 1/4" means 1/4". I learned that lesson...I've made others and they came out perfect.....

    I love this technique. I first learned of it many years ago from Eleanor Burns' Quilt in a Day projects. I like the fact that I can be accurate AND fast!

    I used width of fabric. That said, I used the width of whatever I was using. Fat quarters, leftovers, or the full width of fabric.

    If going more scrappy, I would limit the number used from each fabric.

    Wow, this is a big time saver. I love the log cabin pattern, but it gets kind of tedious making it block by block.

    Love your floral fabric. I'm going to try this today.

    Great Tutorial!!!

    It is good to see that others also made their first cabin using Eleanor Burns method of Quilt in a Day. That was about 20 years ago and the method never gets old. Thanks for sharing!

    thank you, I have done strip piecing like this and made a few baby log cabins. I thank you for posting this, because when I get ready to make another I can just look at your pattern.
