Block 43 - ChevronI'm not sure why this is called a chevron block when a traditional chevron looks more like a zigzag than a 1/4 Log Cabin block. It's probably because when it's placed on point it looks more zigzaggy. But no matter what its name, the1/4 Log Cabin is a fun variation to make!
|Choose 5 fabrics with good contrast. I chose a variety of prints, marbles and hand dyes.|
|Cut your first strip 2 1/2" and sew to the side of your square. Press to the strip.|
|Measure this unit and cut your second strip that length. Sew it to the top and press.|
|Continue on in that way - measuring and cutting, sewing and pressing...|
|...until the block is done. (Forgot to take a picture of the last round being added. Oops!) It will measure 6 1/2".|
Amish variation. Looks like they are 9" blocks. This is a scrap lover's delight!
This is a fun variation. All the "logs" are different widths. This would be a fun quilt to make!
Google: quarter log cabin block, click "images" and you'll get tons of both Modern and Traditional versions!
