Log Cabin blocks are easier to do on an odd grid than on an even grid. It works with a 6 inch square though, if you start with a larger center square. This one is a log cabin variation called Bullseye.
All you will need is 1.5 inch strips of indigo and background along with a 2 inch square of indigo. The indigos can be the same or different.
Here are the pieces you will need:
1 - 2 inch square of indigo
2 - 1.5 by 2 inch strips of background
2 - 1.5 by 4 inch strips of background (notice that it looks shorter in the picture, I figured it out as I sewed the first round)
2 - 1.75 by 4 inch strips of indigo
2 - 1.75 by 6.5 inch strips of indigo
Add your star points and your first sampler block of the month is ready to go.
I could see a whole quiltmofmjust this block. I love it!
Simple and lovely. A great start to the indigo blocks.
I really like this one. It has a lot of potential as a block for a whole quilt.
A simple yet powerful statement of a block!
Just a heads up....the strip measurements didn't work for me. The background strips should be 1-1/2 x 2 and 1-1/2 x 4. The indigo strips should be 1-3/4 x 4 and 1-3/4 x 6-1/2. That worked out for the 6-1/2" square. Thanks for a great block!!
Thanks for the heads up Cathy. I just made my center square 2 1/2 inches and adjusted my strips accordingly. Easy Peasy.
