Come learn how to sew a log cabin quilt with a modern vibe.

This twin-sized quilt uses 9 large traditional log cabin blocks with lots of negative space to really make the log cabins shine. If you sew this quilt in beautiful dark solid fabrics, it will make the perfect quilt for a man.  This is a generous 70” x 84” twin-size quilt.

What is a Log Cabin Block?

The Log Cabin Block can have lots of different looks. The main features are a center piece and strips sewn around that block.

You will need:

– 1/8 yard of dark gray fabric – 1/8 yard medium gray fabric – 1/4 yard light gray fabric – 3/8 yard lightest gray fabric – 1/8 yard of light red fabric – 1/4 yard medium red fabric – 1/4 yard dark red fabric – 5 1/4 yards background fabric (1 3/4 yards for the blocks and 3 1/2 yards for the surrounding rectangles) – 5/8 yard binding fabric ruler (or larger) is very helpful for squaring up your blocks, but not required


– 4 1/4 yards backing fabric, or enough to piece together a 74” x 88” rectangle – a 74” x 88” piece of quilt batting – a rotary cutter, acrylic ruler, and mat – a light colored marking pencil for quilters or tailor’s chalk – sewing machine – thread (I suggest thread matching the background fabric) – a 16 1/2” square quilting
