The Log Cabin block is rich in traditional quilting history - we are excited to bring this course into the modern age with Log Cabin Quilts with a Modern Twist! Kate Colleran will dive into one block quilts, off center and deconstructed blocks as well as curvy patterns. This course is perfect for the intermediate/advanced quilter that is looking to push their skills further.
In the first lesson, Kate will show you how to make a curvy Log Cabin block and a quilt using the curvy block. Next up we will review how to make a wonky paper pieced block. Then move into how to take the Log Cabin piecing technique and use it in blocks made of different shapes- a hexagon, a triangle and more!
Once you have mastered the different shapes, it is time to go improv! Kate will break down a couple variations of the improv block so you can find the way you enjoy the most!
In the last lesson, Kate will explore the idea of one Log Cabin block as a quilt. She will go through some quilt math to help you plan out your Log Cabin quilt, then show you options for the one block quilt including a walk through of her great one block baby quilt.
Lastly, it is time for a trunk show of Log Cabin quilts! Enjoy a fun parade of quilts made by others to get you inspired to move forward on your Log Cabin quilt journey.
Lesson 1:Modern shapes
Kate made her first quilt as a teenager and found that making quilts was a great way to express her creative side. She called it her therapy! In 2003, while still working as a nurse, she started a quilt pattern business with a friend. Now, she designs for various quilt magazines and fabric companies. She is the co-author of the book Smash Your Precut Stash from C&T Publishing and publishes her own quilt patterns. Her goal is simple: to help you make a quilt. She feels quilting is about creating, having fun and being part of a community. Visit her websiteto view her blog to see what quilty shenanigans she is up to now!
