I have always known to change block direction to make a quilt look different but for some reason, I never thought the Log Cabin block would look curvy! There are six quilts, a bed runner and a table runner in this book. Of course, you can just add more blocks to the bed and table runner and you have two more quilts. I have loved the author’s other books, the Circle of Nine series, so I wasn’t surprised when she wrote this book. You can make the log cabin blocks the “old fashioned” way or use the curvy log cabin trim tool she is promoting. The blocks are made just like the normal log cabin ones but instead of every log being the same size, they are two different sizes. One side gets the larger logs and the other side gets the smaller ones. This is what makes the block look curvy. There are eight pages of how to create the blocks, followed by a two-page chart of two different sizes and the size pieces to cut to create them. Each set of instructions have a colored photo, the quilt name, a paragraph about the quilt and a list of skill level, finished quilt and block size and number of blocks needed to make the quilt. Fabric and cutting lists follow this. The actual instructions are very clear with detailed graphics to help you along. I can’t wait to start one but now I’m having a hard time deciding which one!
