Quarter square log cabin tutorial

  1. 1. Quarter Square Log Cabin Thank you for taking time to help us make a fun quilt for our Bingo project! I hope you find this block easy, quick, and fun to make. Please let me know if you have any questions at and I will get back to you as quickly as I can. I will collect the blocks at our June meeting. Happy sewing!
  2. 2. Please use all cotton fabrics. All seam allowances are ¼ inch. I am asking you to make a block that will be bigger than I need and I will trim it to the right size. Please leave it untrimmed. You will need one red square 5” by 5” (like a charm square). One strip of white fabric 2 ½ “ (subcut to 2 ½” by 5” and 2 ½ “ by 7 ”) One strip of black (solid or a print that is mostly black) 3 ½ “ (sub cut to 3 ½ ‘ by 7 ½ “ and 3 ½ “ by 10 ) One strip of white fabric 3” (subcut to 3” by 10 ½” and 3” by 13 “)
  3. 3. Step one: Sew the red square to the white strip that is 2 ½” by 5” Iron toward the red square. Now sew the white 2 ½” by 7 “ strip to the adjoining side. Press toward the red square.
  4. 4. Step 2: Now add the shorter black strip to the same side as the shorter white strip. This time iron to the black. Then add the longer black strip to the adjacent side.
  5. 5. Step 3: Woohoo! Almost done! Grab the shorter of the 3” strips and add it to the same side as the shorter black strip. Iron to the black. Then add the last white strip. You did it! See, fun and easy! Remember not to trim it. You can measure it to be sure it is 12 ½’ or larger.  Make a few more? Hehe Bring them to the June meeting! Love, Laura
