Week 2

Make up the log cabin blocks as in the instructions,
Take care to place the fabrics in the correct order so you have the colour you wish in the centre.

The instructions say trim the finished block to 5 inches. Your blocks depending on the seam allowance might be much bigger than this, I suggest if this is the case then round the block down to the nearest 1/4 of an inch. For example if your block measures 5 5/8th then trim it down to 5 1/2.
All your rows will need to measure the same, before you sew them together. We will address the row lengths toward the end of the class, to achieve this.

Have fun and experiment with colours....again if you are using scraps you can use a different colour for each log.
