Lesley Easy Log Cabin requirements

Easy Log Cabin


In this class you will learn to make log cabin blocks using 2 ½” strips .

You can buy ready cut strips in rolls or cut your own.

The quilts on display are 35 “ square.


Please bring to the class:-



Strip/jelly roll -  must have at least 25 strips

OR  I used a collection of 9 fat quarters from which I cut my strips

Border – 30 cm

Binding – 40 cm

Wadding and backing – 1 metre square



A neutral colour for the piecing – to tone with fabrics

Quilting thread can be chosen later



Sewing machine in good working order – with all leads,attachments and manual

Rotary cutting mat, long ruler and sharp cutter

If you have a square ruler more than 10 ½” it would be useful.

Sewing kit – scissors, pins etc

Notebook and pen



Please think about the size of quilt you would like.

These small quilts can easily be made larger by adding simple strip blocks – my tourquoise and browns sample. Of course you will need extra fabric.


I also have a scrap version made from just cutting up a selection of fabrics.

Log cabin is very addictive and there are many options which you may like to do after the class. I will bring other samples.



Looking forward to seeing you on the day – drinks provided but don’t forget your lunch.

There are many food outlets in the street where you can treat yourself.
