The authors of Circle of Nine have again written a wonderful book but this time it is about Log Cabin blocks. This is a small, take-along book that shows six variations of the Log Cabin block.
Each of the six blocks are stepped through with written instructions and photos showing what the instructions state. Once you get through this section, there is one on various layouts of the six blocks. By turning the blocks in various ways, you get different quilts.
The next section is yardage requirements for different sized blocks of each variety. The final section is about block settings which is similar to layout but shows other ways to position the blocks.
This will make a nice gift for any quilter and especially for one who loves the Log Cabin block.
