If you think quilting is too difficult or too complicated, you’re not alone. Cutting hundreds of pieces and joining angled seams can be tough work! But log cabin quilting—an artful and simple way to piece strips of fabric around a central square—is different. From the intuitive construction through the straight-line stitching, this style of quilting is simple as can be.
In Modern Log Cabin Quilting, Susan Beal outlines the entire process from start to finish, including basic quilting how-to as well as extensive design, fabric, and embellishment information. Since all log cabin designs follow the same formula, once you master straight lines and right angles, any of the 25 projects in this book are possible. From stash-friendly designs like the Charming Camera Case to more ambitious undertakings like the Vintage Linens Quilt, there’s sure to be a project that will get you into (or bring you back to) quilting!

Baker & Taylor
Details budget-friendly, contemporary approaches to the traditional log cabin quilt-block technique, presenting 25 simple projects--including a patchwork apron, an anniversary quilt and a market tote--while sharing tips for personalizing with embroidery, hand-dyes and appliqué. Original.

nice patterns, check out this book again
Patterns I like are the house House Top, single block based on a gees bend design, the modern crosses, and the Northwest modern, 12 block pattern. Also nice home decor and bags sections.
