Log Cabin ‘strip piecing’ ‘rotary cutter’ ‘serger friendly’ quilt pattern – FREEBy
How does the title for this Relief Share blog post hit you?Â That tells you how long and hard we have been searching the net to find a very simple quick log cabin quilt block patternÂ – one that beginners and experts alike will love.
This is a very fast and easy pattern to do.Â The two best websites we found tutorial patterns on are these:
This quilt can be made very easily with strips of fabric. If you want to do a quilt-as-you-go quilt, sew the block on a backing of muslin with batting on top and use binding to put the squares together. This method is used in the Quilt in a Day quilt books that can be bought on half.com – one of my all time favorite quilting books by Eleanor Burns, a marvelous expert quilter:
Use a jelly roll (strips of fabric you can purchase at Wal Mart or other fabric stores) or use up the left over fabric you have from other projects.Â Your serger and rotary cutter can make sewing this quilt even faster and easier.
Relief Share has been blessed with very generous donations of fabric and supplies this past week.Â Ray Cox has sent many boxes of bolts of quilting fabric that are already being made up into quilts for the sick and needy.Â Â Books and a rotary rulers were also included in his boxes of love honoring his sweet wife, Debra.Â Her legacy of love for the sick and needy goes on through Ray’s continuing efforts to answer God’s call to help the helpless and lift up the hearts and hands that hang down from trial and adversity.Â The smiles on the faces of mothers who now have warm quilts and clothing for their precious bundles are the badges of honor shining brightly to mark Debra and Ray’s hard work and dedication to alleviate suffering and bless the lives of the sick and and needy.
Our Relief Share angel, who wishes to remain anonymous, sent a lovely box of orange and red quilters fabric that our volunteers fell in love with.Â This sweet angel seems to have a direct pipeline to heaven and manages to time her donations perfectly depending on what the most urgent need is.Â A box of yarn arrived from Placentia, California that is just perfect for our baby hats, cocoons, and layettes.Â Other donations of lace, ribbon, and sewing, knitting, crochet and serging tools also arrived to help us move forward faster with our charity work.
If you would like to help the sick and needy, please send donations toÂ 6078 Lundy Rd, Houston, MO 65483-2225.Â The greatest need is in Boise at this time so that is the preferred address to ship to.Â Most of the need in Houston is for baby items and hygiene goods, in Boise we are helping families and a larger number of people.Â All times of any kind – new or gently used is gratefully accepted.Â Clean out your closets for a good cause.Â All donations are tax deductible as Relief Share is a 501 (c) 3 non profit charity registered with the IRS.
May God bless you as you bless others
