Light and Dark Log Cabin Quilt

Rotate finished Log Cabin blocks to create an alternate version of the Light and Dark setting. Centers in a berry hue give a nod to the red centers of traditional Log Cabin blocks. Fabrics are from the Bittersweet collection by Nancy Halvorsen for Benartex.

About the Technique

Following designer Lissa Alexander’s lead, quilt tester Laura Boehnke alternated between two different dark prints to make the dark half of each Log Cabin block. To add variety and create a secondary pattern, Laura used matching light prints and stripes in each round, but didn’t reuse a fabric in each block.
