Welcome to my day on the BOB Blog Hop! If you regularly visit my blog you might think this is a blog hop about my husband……Builder Bob……wrong. AccuQuilt has designed several dies that will make a complete block and they are known as Block on Board.
The die I chose to work with today is the GO! Log Cabin Die and here are a couple things I made. I have been making bath runners for years and I think everyone in my family has at least one.
I also put some of the log cabin blocks together and appliqued this cute lama in the center. I haven’t decided if this will be a pillow or a small wall hanging so it isn’t finished yet.
I wanted to show you the different cuts on the log cabin die. I actually lifted the batik fabric from every other cut so you could see it. If you would like to see a great post showing the cutting and piecing of the log cabin be sure and visit AccuQuilt blog.
GO! Log Cabin Die
I quilted a little feather design in the center of the bath runner. You can see that I just used 2 log cabin blocks. It measures 8 x 16 inches.
Here you can see the back and the quilting.
I made 8 inch blocks but with the die you can make up to 12 inch blocks.
I definitely think this will be a pillow.
I still had some blocks left so I added a couple more rows and will make a couple small table runners that will be 10 inches by 20 inches.
