Free eBook - A Great Way to Start the New Year!!

I was very excited when Eric at Fons and Porter asked me to blog about their new eBook - Build Your Best Log Cabin ~
My very first quilt was a Log Cabin quilt so this book was really fun for me to go through and see the different ways one can create a Log Cabin.

What I liked so much about the book was the well thought out instructions and all of the different charts and visual aids to help put the perfect quilt together!!

My very favorite version of the Log Cabin is called "On the Dark Side."

This gorgeous quilt designed by Lori Christianson is a Courthouse Steps variation that uses fabric on all sides.  I can just see this quilt done up in fabulous batik scraps.

My other fun choice is a quilt designed by Ricky Tims (one of my most favorite designers) especially for Fons and Porter called "Bears in Bertie's Log Cabin."

How cute would this be as a table topper!!

There is also a tutorial on binding with piping that looks so fun!!  You insert narrow piping along the edge of the binding to make a perfect finish for a special project.  And a another tutorial on lumpless binding

If you would like your own copy of this great book, you can get one HERE ~ a gift from Fons and Porter - Love of Quilting!!
