Block-Along Highlights ~ Log Cabin, Courthouse Steps & Squares in Squares

on February 25 | in Quilt Block Sew-Along, Sew-Alongs | by | with 46 Comments

From the looks of our Quilting Month photo pool, we have a shared affinity for “square” designs. The Log Cabin, Courthouse Step and Squares in Squares blocks from Week Three of our Block-Along are really fun and amazing!

What can you do with all of your blocks?


Zagara made a table runner with guinea brocade and wax print cotton African fabrics.


Anne:made created this log cabin pillow with lots of great quilting lines.


This Quick Log Cabin Throw is comprised of one (very large) log cabin block,
using a nice selection of fabric. For a view of the entire quilt top visit Annieshouse.


You could also make a quilt like “Gayatri”‘s Blossom quilt!

It’s not too late to start your first (second, third… tenth) block! Take a look at the variety of designs from Week One, Week Two, Week Three and Week Four. For inspiration enjoy the Quilting Month photo pool. We’ll highlight blocks from Week Four of the Block-Along on Monday, March 3.

    I actually have a log cabin quilt in my queue of projects in the making. Seeing everyone else’s work has really been giving me a lot of inspiration and is motivating me to get this project started asap!!!

  2. Amy W says:

    I love the throw made of one large Log Cabin Block! What genius!

  3. Andrea Elizabeth Johnson says:

    Wow, such gorgeous quilts! It is inspiring to see how log cabin can be done so imaginatively!

  4. water works says:

    I think I could handle a table runner. Not to overwhelming and totally useful!

  8. ainhoa says:

    All these blocks are great!

  9. These are so great! I particularly love the idea of making a quilt out of one large block. The piecing part is so time consuming and if you’re buying fabric any way, why cut it into a gazillion little blocks? Love it!

  10. Becca says:

    I was impressed by the blocks…then I scrolled down further and saw the projects–and I’m totally wowed!

  11. Katie says:

    The last two are my favourite! I so want to make a quilt!

  12. Amy Hodge says:

    I love the idea of one giant log cabin block as a throw. That’s about the amount of cutting and piecing I think I can handle. 🙂

  13. Alissa says:

    Fantastic quilts! It seems that no matter the fabric choices, you just can’t go wrong with the log cabin design. Especially like the table runner and single block quilt….gives me inspiration for my oriental fabric collection.

    All these blocks and quilts are great! I need to find some time to “quilt along” before the month ends…
