Machine Quilting Designs for Log Cabin Quilts

If you are considering making this classic quilt design, here’s a quick overview of some machine quilting designs for log cabin quilts. One of the simplest machine quilting designs for log cabin quilts is to quilt an “X” through the center of each block, like Adenike’s Log Cabin Quilt Throw. To quilt this design, first mark diagonal lines across the whole quilt top with a ruler and quilt-marking pen. Stitch in the ditch around each row and column, so you have a square with an “X” in the center. The borders can be quilted as elaborately as you’d like, or finished with a simple stitch-in-the-ditch machine quilting design.

If you’d like the quilting to show up a bit more than a stitch-in-the-ditch design, you can instead quilt straight lines down the center of each log cabin strip.

Next press the unit, first with it closed to set the seam, then press the unit open with the seam allowances to the dark (or in this case, red) side.
