Log Cabin Variation
Log Cabin Variation

I've never done a log cabin block for the BOMs! Couldn't believe that when I went back through the list of blocks. Well, we've go one now. I believe this variation is called Church Steps. You will need 3 fabrics: a bright for the center (typically this is a red), and either a light/medium of the same color, or a medium/dark of the same color. We will be making this one 8" finished.
