Thought some of y'all might enjoy reading about this historic way of making log cabins. Not sure I get the whole process but understand most of it. Made for an interesting read.

Very interesting, I bookmarked it so I can go back later and reread it. I love log cabin quilts, maybe I'll try the pillow to start out with rather than a quilt.

Interesting, it made me immediately think of the folded table mats some of you made around xmas a couple of years back. they formed a star pattern with lots of pleated folds, seems they are done in a similar way - if you look at the pic on an angle, you can see how it looks like a log cabin

I thought I had seen some kind of folded pattern before but I couldn't remember what to save my life.
I have no idea how to do either of them. But I surely admire that the ladies made those log cabins all by and. That's amazing. I would be lost without my machine.
