I appreciate your sharing your pattern and method. I would not have recognized your quilt as a Log Cabin just by looking at it. It is gorgeous. I plan to copy your tutorial and use it soon.

You made the instructions so easy to follow with all the pictures. My favorite pattern is the log cabin. Thank you.

I have no idea... I used leftover white fabric on mine. The amount of background fabric you would need would depend on the size and setting of whatever you choose to make.

Thank you.
I wanted to make this a bit bigger but having a 10" finished block. If I use 7 blocks across and 8 blocks down can I still do a barn-raising pattern? Would appreciate your thoughts.
