More log cabin variations by my students

I have taught the log cabin block many times.
Often I am too busy to take photos. I did take photos of a group of them from one of my classes.

This a very traditional arrangement of blocks for the log cabin design.
I did not give the students any direction as to arranging their blocks, I just told them to play with them.

This also is a very traditional arrangement of Log Cabin blocks. These blocks were pieced the traditional way, not paper pieced. All the strips are the same width, unlike the quilt I showed you yesterday. I know this particular quilt was finished and it is hanging in a vacation home in Northern Wisconsin.

This student was adventurous in both her color choices and her arrangement. These are all generous size quilts.
I personally love the Log Cabin design. I have 2 sets of log cabin blocks made and am waiting for an opportunity to sew them together.
Enjoy tonight's quilt puzzle.

Kay,
Thank you for showing the first of these quilts. The slightly darker strips amongst the light has shown me a whole new way to create designs with Log Cabin. I will show them on my blog as an on going series which could last for years!
