  1. THANKYOU!!!!:) your explaination is by far the simplest one for making a log cabin block I have ever seen! { and I have seen alot of tutes} Iam inspired and excited to get started. Thanks again, Laura

    • Thank you, Laura! I am so happy that you liked it! I love this super-simple piecing method too.

  2. Ahh, I always thought you had to cut each strip of fabric to fit, instead of doing it in strips like this. Now I think I might tackle a log cabin quilt!

    • There are some great tutorials on cutting each one first, but I think this simple trim-the-edge way is sooo much easier (and more fun!). Thanks, I’m so glad you liked it!

  3. Thank you for sharing this tutorial video…I am not as intimidated as I was ten minutes ago! Can’t wait to make a quilt for my grandson!

    • Oh great! I’m so glad to hear it. Thanks!

  4. Great visual tutorial….and I just bought your book. Thank you. I have quilted for years but am newly inspired by faster methods and big stitch hand quilting! I will make a log cabin, your way, and finish it off with some “big stitch” hand quilting in perle cotton. PS I got this link from Alicia Paulsen’s blog.

    • thanks, Janet! that’s wonderful to hear! Isn’t Alicia’s quilt beautiful??

  5. brilliant! thank you!!

  6. This method looks so natural and relaxed! I always feel like I should be pressing my seams or carefully cutting with a straight edge & rotary cutter! I think I need to dig into my scrap fabrics this afternoon.

  7. Thank you so much! I actually understand what I’m supposed to do!! I bought your book this weekend because I’m going to make my very first quilt as a gift for my parents 50th Wedding Anniversary. (cause I’m crazy…)
    I just may pull this off. You’re brilliant!!

  8. oh…I meant to say that I got the idea from Alicia Paulsen’s blog too. Another brilliant woman!
