How to Piece a Log Cabin Flower

We're rocking and rolling through our last two quilt blocks for the Machine Quilting Block Party! This week I'll share videos on Block #11, the Log Cabin Flower Block, and next week we'll learn how to create the Basics Dresden Plate Block. Today let's learn how to piece the Log Cabin Flower Block together in this new quilting tutorial:

There are a lot of steps to this quilt block so make sure to watch the video carefully so you have great results with your Log Cabin Flower. You've already gotten a lot of practice piecing half square triangles for the vase and stem sections. Just in case you need a reminder Click Here to learn how to piece half square triangles

For the flower section, we're trying something new this month and first piecing a traditional log cabin block, then rotating it with a square and a square technique. Be carefully trimming down the resulting flower shape so it fits nicely with the other pieces of your block.

Make sure to swing by tomorrow as we learn how to quilt this beautiful block together with Feathers, Swirling Water, and Chain of Pearls.

Don't forget to check out our schedule for the 2018 Machine Quilting Party! We're going to stitch it up a notch with walking foot quilting and create three beautiful quilts together step-by-step! All of the patterns for this new quilt along are included in our new book Explore Walking Foot Quilting with Leah Day.
