Log Cabins

Here is the log cabin block for the Anniversary Quilt I'm working on. The borders are ready to applique! I pieced the strips on this one, then applied the fusible. 

One purchase I have NEVER regretted is the applique pressing sheet. Check it out HERE. (this is one of many sites with this product) 

This log cabin has 7 pieces. I can lay them all out on the pressing sheet, move them into the correct place, then press. The pieces all stick together, but once it cools I can lift it off the teflon sheet. Now I can place it on my border, press, and it will fuse and then I'll machine applique. 

I've used this teflon pressing mat for at least 15 years and I love it!


Sometimes it is easier to just dump out the totes! The room is now cleaned up ready for my nephew to stay here later this week.  
 

 
It's been cold, but cannot let a bluebird day go to waste! 

 
Make it a great week!

  6. Love your log cabin...so many awesome plaids! I love my applique pressing sheet also...once made an accidental cut into it...the cut never got any worse, so still quite useable!

  7. Your dumping is the only way to pick and choose as to looking for the right fabric to use...then most usually an easier find for prints and color combandnations for a project..love your prim log cabin! PERFECT❤.

    Happy Thanksgiving "Lori" to you and your family! "Gooble, gobble🦃❤

    Hug's, Carolyn

  9. Your log cabin is very authentic in style to some we've seen in the mountains, and perfectly wonderful. I've had one of those applique pressing sheets for a few years but sadly it has gone unused for quite awhile.

  13. I really like it in those homespuns! Did you put fusible on the back of the house after you pieced the strips? Or just on the windows, door, chimney, and roof? (in case I want to copy you!!) Thank you.
