I've been asked to review the new ebook: "Build Your Best Log Cabin" from Fons and Porter's Love of Quilting. I was interested immediately as the log cabin block has always been one of my favorites.
The ebook is concise and easy to read with beautiful color photos throughout. You'll find an antique quilt example of each of three log cabin favorites: Traditional, Courthouse Steps and Chevron. Also included are different setting options and charts to cut strips for each of these blocks in a number of different block sizes, so you can easily design your own quilt and layout.

I will refer to the lumpless binding tutorial often, as Liz's technique is the best!
This ebook will inspire you to explore the timeless beauty and versatility of the log cabin block. I have often combined applique with log cabin blocks: note the setting chart for "lights and darks" on page 4. The light space is perfect for applique!
