This is Part One of Log cabin Quilt article: Blocks and instructions for easy log cabin quilt assembly in several variations using a simple strip sewing technique, not paper foundation pieced. Quilt Top layouts included, too. If you haven't made a log cabin quilt you are in for a treat. I find sewing log cabin blocks very addictive. This article is focused on making larger quilt blocks so they are easy for beginners, but feel free to downsize the strip width and make smaller log cabin or courthouse steps. The smaller blocks look even better!
We decided to make a playmat because it's a great gift for any time of year. You can throw it on the grass in August, or lay it on the living room floor in December. It's stuffed with our thickest cotton batting so it's soft and dense plus it's totally washable so you don't have to be precious with it. Best of all, even though it's hand quilted, it comes together really quickly since it's not basted. It's a perfect, breezy, end of summer project for any baby! Materials

This is my favorite thing to do with my little scraps, and since its Scrap Buster month over at Sew, Mama, Sew , I made a quick tutorial so you can make your own. This pillow cover is 16" square with an envelope back & the design possibilities are endless! I added some pillows I’ve previously made with this same method at the end of this post. Happy Sewing!
