From the Author

I believe that every quilter should start by learning a few basics, such as how to stitch an accurate seam allowance and how to cut and assemble patches. This knowledge will give her the confidence and know-how to make any quilt that interests her and to make informed choices about the methods that will work for her projects. The Log Cabin and especially, my new Log Cabin and Log Quilt variations are ideal for teaching these basics.
