Made with these beautiful Moda fabrics this quilt has a sophisticated country look, but you can use any color combination you desire. Just keep in mind you need to use darks and lights to keep the log cabin feel. Traditionally the center square is red to represent the hearth of the home. Approximate finished size is 68" x 68"

Making the Yule Log Cabin Quilt
1. Cut center, light & dark fabrics into 2-1/2" strips x width of fabric (WOF).
-- Place center fabric and L-1 fabric (right sides together). Sew strips
together using "The Quilt Wizard 1/4" Extended Guide". Trim
selvage on both ends and crosscut sixteen (16) 2-1/2" squares. Use
your rotary cutter and ruler to keep ends square. Press seams toward L-1
Step #2 -- Place new strip right side up and take a few stitches to anchor strip in the machine. Place a cut block from step #1 rotating counter - clockwise, wrong side up on top of next L-1 strip. continue to add cut blocks while sewing to the end of strip. Trim selvage and crosscut block. Make sure that blocks remain square, Press seam allowances toward new strip.
Step #3 -- Continue adding strips rotating counter clockwise and cutting blocks after each new strip is added.
Each color strip will be used twice in consecutive order. The sequence of
order will be:
L-1, L-1, D-1,D-1, L-2, L-2, D-2, D-2, L-3, L-3, D-3, D-3. (See diagram A).
When chain piecing is finished, there will be sixteen (16) 14-1/2" square blocks. (Diagram B)
3. Layout completed blocks in a pleasing arrangement (see picture above), but feel free to play around with block placement. When you are pleased with your arrangement, sew blocks together in rows, press seam allowances in opposite directions in each row so you will have opposing seams, then sew rows together to complete your quilt top center.
1st light fabric = L-1
2nd light fabric = L-2
3rd light fabric = L-3
1st dark fabric = D-1
2nd dark fabric = D-2
3rd dark fabric = D-3
Center fabric = C
