Log Cabin Quilt Patterns
Log Cabin quilt blocks feature strips of fabric pieced around a center square. Many times, dark and light fabric strips are placed on opposite corners of the block to achieve a stair step pattern. Courthouse Steps quilt blocks are a variation of the Log Cabin block in which dark and light fabric strips are stacked on opposite sides of the center square.
